    Didn't help for me. I use chrome and chrome automatically updates to the latest version.

    I use the double gesture swipe to, move the screen half way or fully to that other screen thing. Then magically the mouse comes back. Really Apple with their millions should be doing better. PC's have never given me that problem

    I have this problem and I'm using OS 10.8.2 on an early 2011 MacBook and the only time I lose the cursor is after playing an iTunes video/podcast on full screen.


    The only way I can get the cursor back is to swipe to a different desktop/screen, initiate a hot corner I've set to sleep the screen and then a moment later moving the cursor, bringing the screen alive.


    If I go back to fullscreen video/podcast and stop, allowing the player to auto-hide the controls and cursor, I again lose the cursor. This is reproduceable and predictable.


    I have not encountered the problem with any other type of video, screen saver, etc. I have all recent updates of all software, including iTunes 11.0.1 (12)


    Any fixes yet?

    Same happens for me with latest Mavericks and iTunes versions and I've been having this problem since I bought the Mac about a year ago. Was anyone able to resolve this? Is this still considered to be an Applr bug?
