Out of the blue I find that I cannot compose an email when using Gmail. Nothing has been changed but now when I put the cursor in the text box to begin an email as soon as I hit any key the cursor disappears and no text is produced.

I am at a complete loss as to what has happened here and also have no idea what to do to restore normality.

Anyone got any ideas?

Have you tried a different browser? That's the only idea I can come up with.

This might sound a little bit odd and might be completely wrong-but are you by any chance using firefox?

If you select and drag over the area where you type text, does the text miraculously appear?

Only ask because it did it to me on google last night.
