#1417 closed defect (wontfix)

Dialog displayed over tabContainer on firefox has no cursor.

On firefox(, when opening a Dialog that is over a tab container, a text field does not show a cursor. If the page is scrolled so that the dialog is no longer over a tab container the cursor appears (in fact if half of the text field is within the tab container then half of the cursor disappears). I can see this behavior by adding a tab container to the test_Dialog2.html with a height of 300px and after displaying the dialog scroll the background. The problem occurs with any number of tabs, including no tabs, only a container.

Thanks to the zimbra's users,, , we were able to relate this to the recently fixed forefox bug . I will update the test_Dialog2.html to show the required workaround.

So we can't really fix this, but instead can recommed a workaround.

(In [5596]) workaround for missing cursor in Dialog when overlaying a TabContainer?, references #1417

the workaround (5596) prevents the user from tabbing through the form using only the keyboard, since the div is getting focus instead of the input field (at least in FF 2). Here is a workaround to the workaround: <div style="overflow: auto;" onfocus="document.getElementById('myID').focus()"><input type="Text" id="myID"></div>

force the div to pass focus to the input. Now the user can tab through.

thanks! Judah (diament at torahweb dot org)
