This code seems to modify the DOM properly from a plugin but the cursor doesn't change.
Attached file modify border sample v1.0 (obsolete) —
This sample code from Google's Chromium project succeeds in modifying the border of the plugin using the technique I want to use to modify the cursor.

Do you see CSS parse errors in the error console?
I don't see any errors.
Giving a plugin a basic style attribute setting the cursor (style="cursor: crosshair;") doesn't work either. So this is probably not about whether or not it is done from plugins.
Chrome has the same behavior we do - setting the cursor style on a plugin has no impact no matter how you do it.
Oh, you're setting this on the <object> or <embed> that loaded the plug-in?

Then yeah, sounds like something else is messing with the cursor....
nsObjectFrame::GetCursor returns NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED, which causes nsEventStateManager::UpdateCursor to bail out.

Looks like that was done to fix bug 118877.

I've started working on a spec for allowing this to work:

I have it working in Gecko and a test plugin. If we don't allow this we're going to be stuck with native API forwarding for cursors.

fix v1.0


This doesn't implement the "let the plugin set the cursor" bit, right?

Do we have a way to test this?

Not sure what you mean. This patch is all that is necessary for the plugin to set the cursor via the CSS cursor property via NPRuntime. Plugins can already do that actually, it just doesn't actually cause the cursor to change because the object frame returns NS_ERROR_FAILURE for nsObjectFrame::GetCursor regardless of what the CSS cursor property says. With this patch that call can succeed (via the parent implementation), allowing the CSS-specified cursor to be displayed.
Ah, I see.  OK.
