When i look at a map embedded in website the cursor disappears and only shows up randomnly or when you stop moving the mouse. This makes using maps in Firefox impossible. Must be related to Firefox - works in Google Chrome Please fix or advise or I have to change webbrowser

That is a special hand cursor coming from maps.gstatic.com, so it looks that you block loading images from this domain.

cursor: url("https://maps.gstatic.com/mapfiles/openhand_8_8.cur"), default;

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, DuckDuckGo PE, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.

Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content. You can click shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection. You can check the Web Console for related messages about blocked content.

Not able to replicate the issue in Linux nor Win 11. The only thing I see is that the hand is Black in Linux and White in Windows.

I noticed that if I block all cookies the map does not show. What are your cookies settings?

Note that this is likely a problem with retrieving the file for this special hand cursor, so recheck this in the Network Monitor like I wrote above.
