Whenever I press space to scroll one page down the cursor dissapears. The same thing happens when I press `. As soon as I move the mouse it reappears but this is unwanted and annoying behavior which didn't happen in the past. I'm not sure when it started happening but it hasn't been long since that. I tried restarting with all the plugins turned off but that didn't help. I'm using the latest version of FF on Win 7 x64.`

You can look at this pref on the about:config page.

  • about:config => widget.windows.hide_cursor_when_typing => false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. Clear cookies the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

WARNING: modifying prefs directly via the about:config page can sometimes break Firefox or cause strange behavior, and there is no guarantee that this will keep working in future Firefox releases, so be cautious with modifying prefs if you aren't sure you understand their purpose.

You may have switched on caret browsing. You can toggle caret browsing off/on by pressing F7 (Mac: fn + F7).

  • Settings -> General: Browsing
    remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages"

Note that this is a Firefox accessibility feature.

Thanks for your answer but that's not it. That option is off and I've never touched it.

Are you talking about the mouse pointer ?

Yes, (old habits die hard). I've also noticed it happens when I press backspace too.

Perfect, this fixed it. Thanks. I don't understand why that was changed though. Is it some new default setting in FF? Because I certainly didn't mess with it.
