    Is anybody else experiencing a sort of misalignment between the position of the cursor and highlighting text/clicking links in Safari?

    From time to time the cursor will actually function a few centimeters above its position, meaning I have to position the curser a certain distance below a link if I want to click it or below the text I want to highlight.
    Sometimes it disappears by itself, and sometimes it requires reloading the page.

    I haven't experienced it before updating to 8.0.4, but I can't say for sure that that's what caused it. It's pretty annoying.

    Yeah, I am having that issue too since the latest Safari update. Here's me thinking it was my Wacom trackpad being all weird. :eek:

    Create a new user, reboot and login to the new user. Does the issue happen in the new user account?

    - Based on a few hours of on/off browsing in a new account, no it does not.
    But the issue has been completely unpredictable and I haven't been able to deliberately reproduce it, so it might be that it just hasn't occurred yet in the new account...
