A question about this forum and using Firefox plusWinXp

by gargoyle_xlvii / April 27, 2006 9:47 AM PDT

I am using Firefox ver and WWinXp Pro.
When I try an post to this forum, I can not see the flashing line cursor in the Subject Title or the Messege body textarea.

I have tried using IE and it shows the flashing line cursor. But I do not have one with Firefox.

Any of you Firefox users find a way around this problem or I the only one with this problem.

I also have XP Pro and Firefox. Once I had the same problem, but closed Firefox and re-started it. Then the problem was solved. Even as I type this I have a proper flashing cursor before me.

Have you tried re-starting Firefox?

My Cursor is back

In reply to: Always?

As suggested I did stop and restart the browser and this seem to correct the problem.

However I did disable 2 extension also
One was tab view of IE
And the second was View IE.

I will enabling one at a time to see if the problem comes back.

Are those of us, who can not see the cursor using either of these extension? If so that might be the problem and then it might not be?

Post back you results if you do any testing.

I don't have those extensions but did have the same problem with the cursor that you're experiencing. But only for that session. When I closed down and restarted Firefox, everything was ok.

One thing you could try, delete all your Firefox cookies. It would mean you would need to log in again on certain sites, but it may help.

Good luck.

The cursor is gone again!!

It seen that was not the solution.
It seems that shutting down and restarting is not the solution.
Even with the 2IE extensions disabled.
I guess I keep looking for a solution.
Again if you think you found a solution post back> Please.
