User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120626 Firefox/15.0a2 Build ID: 20120626042007 Steps to reproduce: visited this link: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/aurora/ and tried to sign up for newsletter using Aurora 15.0a2 (2012-06-26). Actual results: Cursor did not appear in box. Also couldn't select "Your email address" to highlight for copying to clipboard. If I started typing the "Your email address" disappeared and what I typed did appear (but no cursor). Was still able to submit my email address and sign up for newsletter but it was confusing as at first I thought I couldn't. This issue occurs in Aurora and Nightly(16) but not Stable(13) or Beta(14). Expected results: "Your email address" should have disappeared as soon as cursor placed in box. Should have been seen a cursor to indicate field was editable.
Confirmed this happens in latest-mozilla-central on Linux as well.
Simon, can you please investigate using progressively earlier versions of Aurora to find a regression window for this bug? We need to narrow down the exact day where this started to happen. Thanks.

We need to narrow down the > exact day where this started to happen. Thanks. I confirmed this happens in 15.0a1 but I am not sure where to get an earlier build of 15. Can you point me to URL to download earlier builds of 15? I have already confirmed this is not present in the latest 14 (Beta). Regards, Simon.
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2012/ (by year/month) (Note that every six weeks code moves from mozilla-central to mozilla-aurora, mozilla-aurora to mozilla-beta, and mozilla-beta to mozilla-release, pretty much simultaneously. So to track down builds of 15, you'd look at mozilla-aurora builds from now back to June 5 or so, and mozilla-central before that. The version number is in the filenames.)
I have found the regression: Portable zip downloaded from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2012/05/2012-05-25-03-05-17-mozilla-central/firefox-15.0a1.en-US.win32.zip doesn't have regression whereas ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2012/05/2012-05-25-07-02-45-mozilla-central/firefox-15.0a1.en-US.win32.zip does have regression. Can someone double check this? Regards, Simon Grant.

Thanks Simon for helping me track down the regression.
Sounds like the behavior is exactly what it should be, given the markup on the site and the desired behavior in bug 673873. The only issue I see here is the lack of a caret in the textfield, right? Mounir?
