Comment 83 for bug 164526

I am also using input boxes in deeply (tabpages) nested absolute div's, where sometimes the carret disappears.
Because none of the fixes work for me, where using position:fixed being the most horrific one, i just keep on trying.

for me this works (only tested it on FF2.0):
<div style="position:absolute;display:block;"><div style="width:1px;"><input type="text"/></div></div>

hope it helps.

And as others allready pointed out, its pretty sad it takes more then 4 years to fix a bug, any bug, even one as bad as this one.
