By changing of apps, so by making multitask, there are sometime like a mouse cursor which can appear on the screen... Here is the photo... It is just since last update! image description

Who know to explain me that !?

The covers of minimised apps don't always behave as expected. Looks like a direction arrow from a Mapping app or something, what app is it you have minimised?

QUICK EDIT: Sorry, I can see it's the messaging app - how odd is that!?, is the message an MMS??

By the way, just an idea, go to Jolla Store and look for Screenshot or similar, gives a nice clear image for you to upload and for forum users to see :)

Ahahaha I've seen this too! It can appear on any cover, but I only ever see it for a split second.

I don't know what it is. Just wanted to confirm to you that neither you nor your Jolla is crazy. ;)

Had seen this once too. But only once and never again. ;-)

I have seen this too, but only on modRana's cover.

This can happen with all apps, and yes, it is for a very short time (I had to make a video to have the image!) my first remark was like "windows 95 inside"... But finally, I do not know, that do not trouble the good working of the phone, but it is a real trouble for my surprise eye !

I haven't seen this (yet), but that looks strangely like the default X cursor! ( You can recognise that ugly bastard from a kilometer away!

Seems like wayland uses the same default cursor. I guess Jolla made the cursor hidden and somehow on some effects the default cursor is shown somehow.

Haven't anyone been able to fix this yet? It doesn't bother much but it looks a little bit foolish when it appears. Wish I could give the exact steps to reproduce it. It seems to appear on the messaging app cover though every time, even if you change the order of the covers.
