    I have noticed that, every once in a while, my typing cursor disappears in FF. I don't know if it was this way in previous releases, but I just started noticing it the last week or so. Only happens occasionally though.

    Firefox update 23.0.1 is available and it fixes the LastPass freeze at browser opening.

    Both of mine just gave me a pop-up on that. Usually I have to wait a day or so before those show up. Must have really annoyed some folks. I never ran into that issue.

    Look in Mouse Properties for your OS and make sure "Hide pointer while typing" is not checked.

    Thanks Hugh. That's probably it. It is enabled, but doesn't seem to work all the time. Like I said, no biggie.

    Hope things in Greater Columbia are well!

    Well...if it's enabled (ie. checked) that's probably what's causing the cursor to seem to disappear randomly...sometimes making it appear to flash. I had the same issue until I unchecked that box and then the problem went away.

    And you're welcome...and yeah...things here in the Metro are peachy...rainy but peachy. :biggrin:

    Yesterday I noticed that the audio was really screwed up on Facebook games. If I go play something in YouTube, it's fine though, so it's probably one of my ad-blockers.

    Anyone else seeing something like this?

    Update: nevermind. I think it's a problem with the audio drive on my VM. Same issue running IE on the VM, but works fine on the main OS.

    Update 2: It seemed to be AdBlock Edge....
    Edit: nevermind, sound irregularity came back. Oh, well. On to try DNTM.
    Just disabled, sounds are good so far.


    Also, every time I close Firefox, it says the app has ended abnormally. Just started with the most recent update.
