I got following issue: on every site, i get a blinking cursor like I could type there (happens on every space/text without links, banners etc.) when I click somewhere, is there a way to stop firefox from doing that?

Chosen solution

Note that this is likely about 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.
