Is it just my imagination, or is this blinking cursor in the text box something new? New or not, please stop it, or at least give people who value their sanity the option to turn it off.

Jay, if you are using Firefox, you can "fix" this yourself!

Just....
a) type about:config in the address bar/URL field
b) ignore warning Angelic
c) right-click anywhere on the "page", select New -> Integer
d) enter "ui.caretBlinkTime" as the name (w/o quotes)
e) enter 0 as the value

Tada! no more blinkyCool

Okay, now that I have given you the info, I must say the obligatory, "DO A GOOGLE SEARCH!!!"LaughTongue
I type in "stop text cursor blinking", and....bam!...first result, there was the solutionCrazy

I find all blinking cursors fatally distracting. I turn them off on every program I have.
