Hiding the caret in cursor mode after three seconds is a b2g spec. I'd like to make the caret persist by default in all platforms, which is a least surprise behavior. Firefox Android does this, too.
That is, the single caret in cursor mode will always persist on all platforms as on Firefox Android. Review commit: https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/49445/diff/#index_header See other reviews: https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/49445/

Hiding the cursor on Firefox for Android was a CPU usage/battery win. I don't think we want to revert this.
Kevin, perhaps you're thinking of the blinking text input caret? I don't see why the non-animated "layout.accessiblecaret" selection carets should consume any CPU.
I was. Sorry.
