    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?

    I have it happen on two machines that were upgraded to Yosemite. So frustrating.

    Have been waiting for this fix for very long time.

    I've had the vanishing cursor curse for years, too. I only notice it when streaming video from or


    I have a late-2013 iMac running 10.10.2 Yosemite and it happens in Safari 8.0.3.


    My workaround is to move the cursor as far left as possible and because I have my dock on the left side of the screen, I can see the invisicursor has arrived there by the genie effect on the dock. Then when I move it to the right it reappears, although sometimes not for long. It's really amusing.


    Lately I've also noticed that the cursor fails to autohide when the video is playing, so I wonder whether the two problems are associated: is the autohide working after the player window is out of focus but not when it's in focus?


    I'm only glad I don't work on videos for a living.


    Apple, please give this your attention! It's due for a solution.

    I've had these issues since Mountain Lion (maybe Lion, not sure) on several machines, still happens in El Capitan.

    Now I'm a software developer and I know all about those annoying bugs you don't want to fix right now even though your customer looses hair over it, but eventually, you need to fix it.

    Somebody should deal with this, it's about time.

    I have just started experiencing the same problem with a 17" MBP running Yosemite 10.10.5 and iTunes  This glitch really impairs one's ability to watch a movie in ITunes.  Very frustrating and disappointing.
