Found on:
Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.13
Windows XP SP2

Symptoms:
Cursor (caret) sometimes fails to appear in input text fields

Workaround:
After a very arduous search for an efficient solution I only found one that is most practical (in my situation): place to the focus elsewhere before returning it to the input field, i.e.,

document.body.focus();
textbox.focus();

I tried using some CSS suggestions but none of them really worked, or if it did is not practical because it normally destroys my layout.  I decided to just put the focus to the document body because of its convenience (and least number of side effects) before returning it to the input field.
