Firefox should have a preference to disable cursor (mouse pointer) shape manipulation.

Some web sites set "cursor: none" on large areas. This is annoying and makes text selection more difficult.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. n/a



This was also requested in bug 346690.
Maybe the pref only needs to ignore 'cursor:none' and 'cursor:url()' ?
I think those two are the only ones that can make the mouse pointer invisible.

The ability to force mouse and/or to disable it, via pref, could be interesting for kiosk/TV/dashboard apps.
