Cursor disappearing - FF v25.0.1

Whether full-screen or smaller, about 1 second after the mouse cursor stops, it disappears. It sometimes blinks a time or two first and if I type text into a textbox it re-appears until I stop typing. It doesn't matter if it's hovering over a link or not.

I don't have "hide the cursor" set in Control Panel, and can't find any setting in TMP or Options.

This just started recently.

Have you done all the usual troubleshooting? Start FF without add-ons enabled, etc?

It could be related to Flash.

Bug 243718 - cursor disappears when visiting site with Flash animated cursor

The kongregate.com link in the bug will cause it to manifest itself.

Yep, no joy. It may have been going on for a while and I just didn't notice, due to how I was using FF.

I just closed all other tabs except this one and the disappearing stopped. Maybe it is Flash related.

i know this is basic, but check the settings for your mouse, in "control panel"..
