    Which theme are you using? I use "Thunderbird (default)" and I see the
    vertical-bar cursor with no problem.

    All the time? I suspect what gm is seeing is

    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=292580

    which is something I've seen many times. It was previously mentioned
    here as recently as June 15:

    All the time, but I'm on Linux. At times I experience some keyboard lag in
    Firefox with more than 100 tabs open, but it's nothing compared to what
    sometimes happened (on a much much slower machine) in Dos (not Windows) 3.1,
    so I go on typing "blind", and eventually the display catches up.


    Best regards,
    Tony.

    Ken,

    This is exactly the case - "cursor periodically disappears".
    Funny, this was the only reason why I switched from 1.5 on the first
    place. I was hoping to get rid of disappearing. Chances TB2 just
    inherited the problem from 1.5, but it does not make the problem less
    annoying. :-(
    Oh, well.

    Thanks for the help,

    gm
