When I resize my Mozilla window opaquely on Linux, especially with very complex pages that have word wrapping or a lot of code to render, and I do so very slowly and continuously, when I stop, the cursor in the URL bar will blink very rapidly until it seems to have expended it's "blink buffer". My guess is that it tries to blink once per redeaw of the window and, if it doesn't get to blink the cursor, it will do so when the resizing has stopped. I would prefer that the cursor did not insist on needing to blink for each redraw (if, in fact, this is what's happening).
It seems you reported the same phenomena in bug 136602 - resolving as duplicate. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 136602 ***

Andrew, you already filed a bug on this :) Please go to the original bug and comment on which window manager you're using.
Okay, yeah, I've already filed a bug about this. However, when I went to "My Bugs", it said "Zarro Boogs found", which was odd, because I knew that I had filed two other bugs with this account. Perhaps I should have read the docs more clearly, but I thought that the action of that query was obvious. Maybe I was wrong. Anyway, I'm using FVWM2 2.4.7 with opaque resizing and moving turned on. I'm also using X 4.2.0 with a Radeon VE at 1600x1200@24bitColor, in case that's helpful (the ATI drivers maybe aren't as fast as others). AFAIK, FVWM2 is the only small WM that has opaque resizing. (Perhaps I was trying to be with bug-filing as some people are with the crosswalk buttons. If I file more dupe bugs, it will get fixed faster! ;-) )
