Photoshop: Mouse cursor replacing brush outline when drawing on a layer with a mask enabled

When making quick short strokes the brush outline cursor is replaced with the standard mouse pointer cursor, on a layer that has a mask enabled. This doesn't seem to be an issue when the layer's mask is disabled or when the brush is changed to crosshairs.

I primarily use photoshop to paint, and while I don't use layer masks every day, it is definitely an issue when I am working on a piece that is quite detailed.

Hello, are you on 21.2? on Mac? Pc? which OS version?
Using a tablet? if on windows: using Windows INK or WinTab?
