User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1

In Chrome pointer becomes busy state when it is over the page content. Whem mouse moves over toolbar or tabs pointer becomes normal state and vice versa. I think his is right behaiviour and Firefox should do the same.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set ui.use_activity_cursor to true in about:config
2. Start loading any page
3. Move cursor over toolbar or tabl or menu or addon bar

Actual Results:  
Firefox shows "busy" indicator

Expected Results:  
Cursor should change to default

When page still loading and when cursor moves over page content again - cursor should become "busy" state again

Hi, why did you close this? Is it solved in new Firefox versions?
I think "WONTFIX" is more accurate - we don't show the busy cursor at all, and I don't think we have any plans to in the future.
Resolution: INVALID → WONTFIX
