You may have switched on caret browsing.

You can press press F7 (on Mac: fn + F7) to toggle caret browsing on/off.

Re: my cursor blinks on all web sites

Hi gdmatrix!

Can you download the latest version of Firefox and see if this still happens?

If that doesn't help, try running Firefox in safe-mode.

  • Firefox -> Help -> Restart with add-ons disabled

If it works in safe-mode, that means one of your Add-on Extensions is causing the problem, which will require disabling them all, and then re-enabling them one by one to isolate the problem.

Thank you for your help. That could of very well have happened in some frantic pecking.

Thanks again
