My cursor is disappearing in Firefox. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

I have had this problem before, and it was advised that I check my addons, and remove a certain one. I have gone to addons, and don't see anything unusual there. Any suggestions will help.

Re: My cursor is disappearing in Firefox. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

You have a corrupted user agent that identifies you as Firefox/3.6.12

  • Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.17) Gecko/20110420 Firefox/3.6.12 XF_mmhpset GTB7.1 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729) FBSMTWB*

See:


Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
