Whilst browsing the web, I find my mouse jumping in random directions while
moving it. Sometimes it'll jump in the same direction of my movement, sometimes
the opposite, and sometimes a wierd tangent. It is intermittent, and completely
random.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Mozilla
2. Browse normally, and use the mouse...
3. 

Actual Results:  
Mouse jumps in random directions.

Expected Results:  
Move in the direction I specify at the speed I specify.

I've never seen anything similar, nor heard of it.
Are you sure the mouse only behaves erratically when you use mozilla applications?
This sounds like a hardware or driver error.

It hasn't done it to me at all tonight on any desktop that doesn't have an open
copy of Mozilla on it. I was switching desktops to access GAim, and it NEVER did
it on that desktop. It was confined to the one that had Mozilla open, leading me
to think it was a Mozilla issue. After getting the same bug for about 5-6 hours
randomly, I got a little annoyed with it... And, with my rationale, I thought
this was the best place to address it...

*sigh* Well, I just proved myself wrong... The mouse made a gigantic leap while
I was playing a game on Desktop 2(Mozilla is on Desktop 1), so it isn't Mozilla
related.
