When I click in a text box, the text cursor does not show?

Posted

Especially in Google search box- I can't even press enter to make it search, I have to minimize the window and maximize it to show the cursor. Any way to fix this?

Sorry. I tried all of that, but the problem still persists. Perhaps it's a problem with Firefox 10.0 itself?

Can you try updating to Firefox 10.0.1? There's a fix for an edge-case bug where Java applets can prevent you from focusing.

Well...when I go to the homepage it says my browser is up to date, so I think I already have that. Sorry if I was being unclear about it.
