There is an annoying bug in my chrome that causes a blinking cursor also known as "the text cursor," or "the insertion point" to appear wherever I click. For those guys who don't know what it is, it's the cursor that appears when you click on an element that you can edit on any website (like the comments section on youtube). 

But in my chrome, that thing appears wherever I click and even if that element is not editable. Only the cursor is appearing but I can't edit that element. I will include some screenshots.



I will also upload a video.

If the video is not playing, you can use this drive file that I uploaded: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PUFxXy7Qvdudm7SNbxCGIKfCFFYBaRc0/view?usp=sharing

it's really annoying, please fix this bug.

Same Problem here and also solved! Thanks!

I also remember why this setting was active in my case.
We built a web application that allows for debugging inside the browser and we jump inside the next statement with the key "F7".
Since a couple days ago Chrome kept asking if I want to enable the feature "Navigate the site with text cursor". Since checking the box "Don't ask again" and then pressing "Cancel" didn't prevent it from appearing, I finally clicked "Activate it".


And there you have it.



Maybe it helps preventing the issue if you would give 3 options:

Cancel            No, don't ask again          Yes
