I just upgraded to a 4k monitor and the blinking cursor is so thin I can not see it. I have adjusted the thickness in windows 10 with took care of the issue with Microsoft applications but I can't figure out how to make it thicker in Firefox.

I've tried changing from Firefox theme to System theme but there was no change. Fonts is set to Segoe UI 17.

I have System theme -- auto enabled.

Any suggestions?

Chosen solution

You can create one or two Integer prefs on the about:config page, the first allows to set the caret width and the second allows to set the blink rate, -1 will disable blinking.

  • ui.caretWidth (16)
  • ui.caretBlinkTime (milliseconds;use -1 to disable blink)
