Strange Cursor Artifact in Firefox

2007-03-27 22:00 - Links

Here's the explanation:

It will appear in the text boxes of a page that mixes left-to-right and right-to-left scripts. For example, wikipedia.

The dot on the cursor indicates the direction the caret will move in the current text box (which depends on the script direction). I imagine this is useful to people who work in a mixture of RTL or LTR languages.

This thing has annoyed me for a long time. I finally broke down and googled it. At least now I know what it is. When will I figure out how to disable it?
