    Anybody have this happen to them? I'll be browsing the net using Safari and then suddenly the pointer, or cursor will just vanish. When this happens I can still move the "invisible" cursor around--moving the cursor over my tabs or bookmarks bar items will have them respond as they do when I usually mouse-over those items. The pointer will kinda disappear and then reappear and then disappear again. I haven't noticed this happening while doing anything other than using safari. I use a bluetooth mouse- a wireless IntelliMouse Explorer. When I experience the disappearing I will switch to the trackpad and it still vanishes and reappears.

    Any suggestions??

    Quit and relaunch Safari?

    By the way, closing the window ≠ quitting the program.

    Thats what I have been doing, and it works. Has this been known to happen occasionally with Safari? Or with any other applications?

    Yeah it happens to me once in a great great while. A restart probably wouldn't hurt.

    Happens to me all the time, including right now in Safari 3.1.2 on OS X 10.5.4. This is a longstanding Safari bug, and it happens to me on multiple machines, both PPC and Intel. Quitting Safari and relaunching fixes it for a while, but it's still a bug.
