Description Travis Evans 2012-11-25 00:00:49 UTC
Dragging a link from Firefox to a knotes note (to copy the URL) renders the text insertion cursor “frozen” or totally invisible in that note until knotes is restarted. The insertion point can still be moved around, but it no longer repaints.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new note and Firefox side by side
2. Find any clickable link in Firefox
3. Drag the link from Firefox directly into the knotes window
4. Focus the knotes window and type some text, move the cursor around with the keyboard, etc. (sometimes it seems to take a few editing operations)
Actual Results:  
Eventually, the cursor disappears or “sticks” in some arbitrary location and no longer repaints, making it impossible to see where one is about to type.

Expected Results:  
The cursor should continue behaving as before dragging the link.
