The awesome bar, the search engine field, and any form element on a website will show multiple cursor blinkers while I'm typing in them. The blinkers also momentarily appear upon focus. It's confusing because I don't know which is cursor is the real one and which are the decoys. How do I remove the decoys?

Do you have any imported add-ons like stylish or greasemonkey working with it? Does it go away if you disable these addons? –  CreeDorofl Mar 26 '11 at 19:07

You may have inadvertently enabled Caret Browsing. Press F7 to toggle, or if that doesn't work, go to about:config and set accessibility.browsewithcaret to false.
