It will not go away no matter what I do. I have downloaded a new firefox and this still happens. This does not happen with safari. The period does not show up in my sent email--but it is annoying to have this little period show up as I am composing my message. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1..hello how are you? 2. 3. Actual Results: hit a letter and the period appears once and stays it can not be deleted
I can't reproduce this. Please take a screenshot of a message containing this "period" and attach it here.
I can't capture it in a screenshot because the period is attached to the cursor--when the cursor goes away so does the period.
Thanks to your additional information, I can now see this myself. The "period" or "dot" blinks off and on with the text-entry cursor, and appears just below the top and to its right. It doesn't appear in every place where you can enter text -- for example it doesn't appear when you're typing the text of a mail message. But it does appear when the cursor is in the message's To or Subject fields. The "dot" also appears in other text-entry fields besides those used for writing email. For example I also see it when the keyboard focus is in the "Search Mail" box or the "Search, add or invite" box under "Chat". This happens in FF2 and FF3 (and also in 1.8-branch and trunk Camino) on OS X (I tested in OS X 10.5.3). It doesn't happen in other browsers on OS X (e.g. Safari or Opera). It doesn't happen (in either FF2 or FF3) on Windows or Linux. I've no idea what the cause could be. Since it's just a minor annoyance, I'm going to give it a fairly low priority.

OK, this appears to be an issue with FF3's default Firelight theme. You don't see the problem if (for example) you use the Phoenix Reborn theme.

Oops, I take that back. You see the issue even with the Phoenix Reborn theme. Though it does disappear momentarily if you switch themes (either from Firelight to Phoenix Reborn or vice-versa) while logged in to your Gmail account. The problem returns when you log out and back in again. Very strange.
