I don't understand why this is a bug. When the user selects the text field, the background text would usually still be present until certain text is typed. What's the problem here? I don't follow.

AFAIK it is the correct behavior, the short hint is displayed in the input field before the user enters a value. Am I wrong? BTW it is the behavior for placeholders implemented by the browser not by Ev.me
The Mozilla's implementation is OK according to the specification http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/common-input-element-attributes.html#the-placeholder-attribute
