Disappearing Cursor in Gmail?



  • Twice now I have noticed that the cursor has disappeared when trying to reply in a text box in Gmail. I can still type alphanumeric symbols but there is no cursor function. I've seen this bug before on Safari for Windows a few years ago.

    I just wondered if anyone else had experienced it. The only way to bring the cursor back is to close and reopen Vivaldi.

    I'm running #1.7.735.46, x86 on Win 7 x64 Home Premium. I have four extensions: uBlock Origin, A+ Font Rendering Enhancer, Google Translate and IP Whois & Flags Chrome & Websites Rating.



  • I don't use Gmail, so I can't confirm that but have you tried focusing the input field in & out or force-refreshing the page (by default: press [CTRL] + [SHIFT] + [R] or [CTRL] + [F5])? (Warning: you might lose your text input, so be sure to copy it somewhere first).



  • @Davaldi I use Gmail a lot, very much! So far I have not had this problem! I tried it several times now and I could not reproduce the problem! Tested in final and snapshot version :relaxed:
    Windows 10 Pro x64 here.

    The first thing I could think of was refreshing the page, but that didn't help. The previous version of Vivaldi didn't suffer from this as far as I know. I think I've seen this sporadic bug before on SRWare Iron as well. That was on a different computer running Vista a while back though. I don't think it was just peculiar to Gmail then. The bug doesn't happen most of the time. I'm guessing it's a WebKit/Blink thing. I just opened Gmail in a tab (Vivaldi) and it's working fine at this very moment in time.

    OK thanks. I think it's difficult to reproduce as it is intermittent at best.



  • @Davaldi Hello, this happend before, i think it was Vivaldi 1.2 or so... Devs repaired it though, so it should not occure anymore. Please, try to look it up here on forum, as this whole topic might be somewhere (in archives?) and fill in bug report.

    OK, thanks for the information.
