I was watching YouTube today and i realized a flashing white line in the bottom left of my screen. then i went to a few different website and i saw the same thing, although the position was different. I realized that the position of the line depended on where you clicked and only on lines of text. i haven't downloaded any add on in a wile and i have only just saw this today.

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

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

Note that this is a Firefox accessibility feature.
