Okay, not sure why this is a new bug from 9668 but here is the comment I included when I closed 9668 which includes the api I created. Okay, per my earlier discussion with pavlov we were unable to accomplish this feature using style alone since we would have to set the cursor style on every element and then change it back. This is because the cursor attribute is inherited so if we set the cursor on the document using style any lower level element which specified its own cursor (as we do for elements in ua.css) would override the desired cursor. So instead a method was added to nsIDOMWindow. The method is SetCursor(in DOMString cursor); This method takes any of the cursor strings specified in the CSS2 spec and sets the cursor. This method overrides the cursor change as it moves about a page and only works within the bounds of the page. In order to reset the cursor to allow it to change normally as it moves the cursor must be set back to 'auto' using the SetCursor method.
