On every web page, the cursor flickers on and off so badly that it is difficult and sometimes impossible to select anything - button, checkbox, whatever.

And, with reference to the pasted information below, I did not change or update any preferences. I simply had 2 add-ons disabled at installation of the new version of the browser.

Thank you so much! I closed Firefox and then opened it again and the flicker is no longer here. However, I'm starring your email in case it happens again and isn't solved quite so easily.

Does the issue still occur if you start Firefox in Safe Mode? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode

How about with a new, empty profile? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic%20Troubleshooting#w_8-make-a-new-profile
