I am using firefox 8.0 I have tried f7 and that doesn't stop it. When I totally reboot the computer it stops for awhile but randomly returns. Please make it stop flashing at me.

Where do you see that blinking cursor?

If it is on a web page and not in a text area or input field then your are in caret browsing mode (press F7 to toggle).
If that isn't your problem then try to explain it better.
