Text Cursor appearing everywhere you click in Firefox

View Details

Everywhere I click the cursor appears like I am going to write something. Idk if I did something or something changed but it is kinda annoying. I may not have noticed it doing this before for a long time but today I have been. It appear wherever I click at the start of a line. I have not changed a thing on my Firefox settings for the longest of time. The only thing I had to do recently was reset how I wanted it to search for updates and it even went back to it’s setting I had it on before.

So is this a part of Firefox that is just now catching my attention or did something change?

You may have switched on caret browsing.

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

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Accessibility: [ ] “Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages”
