In certain dialog boxes, like "file bookmark" and "find in this page", the caret
does not have a bidi marker, making it diffcult to tell the corect language

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any URL
2. Go to Search--> Find in this page.
3. Observe the caret in the db

1. Open any URL
2. Go to Bookmarks--> File bookmark
3. Observe the caret in the db

Actual Results:  In both cases, the caret does not have a bidi marker.

Expected Results:  Caret should have Bidi marker

This happends both on win98 and win2000 (both are hebrew enbaled).
The blown-up screent shots that I am attching show that the marker is just not
there, not even in a 1 pixle size.
Summary: Caret does not have bidi marker in certain dilog boxes → Caret does not have bidi marker in certain dialog boxes

Marking these all WORKSFORME sorry about lack of response but were very
overloaded here. Only reopen the bug if you can reproduce with the following steps:

1) Download the latest nightly (or 0.9.6 which should be out RSN)
2) Create a new profile
3) test the bug again

If it still occurs go ahead and reopen the bug. Again sorry about no response
were quite overloaded here and understaffed.

Switch the language once.
The caret should then display the correct input direction.

Tested with Mozilla 1.2b (2002101612) under Windows XP.
This problem happens with the latest Phoenix and Beonex as well.

The problem is nsIBidiKeyboard doesn't check all keyboard layouts on initialization.  We are going to fix it on trunk now.
