The description frequently disappears when I'm trying to create a listing, but I haven't had a situation where the cursor disappears completely.


Have you tried doing something else, like changing the category (after checking if the description works, you can change it back)?


If that doesn't "unstick" it, then try another browser. And if THAT doesn't work, come back here for help.
