// @description Make Discord blink the input textbox upon being refocused (it seems unsafe to type at a window without a blinking cursor).
// ==/UserScript==
// Discord does this weird thing where it stops the cursor from blinking in the input textbox if
// you blur it. When refocusing the window, it doesn’t restore the blinking cursor. This bugs
// me because, in everything else, not having a blinking cursor means that weird things will
// happen if you start typing (e.g., activating mnemonics in winforms). So, add logic to refocus
// the text input.
window.addEventListener('focus', e => {
// Because Discord does some weird blurring of everything when it blurs, the refocus upon switching
// tabs or refocusing the browser itself will be targeted at the window. Other focus events are probably
// legit, so don’t do things because that’ll break stuff.
if ( !== window) {
// Locate the current input textbox.
const textChannelInputBox = document.querySelector('div[data-slate-editor=true][aria-label^=\'#\']');
if (!textChannelInputBox) {
}, false);

I gave up and now use the desktop client. But I haven’t needed the desktop clients’ features in a while…
