This is driving me mad. From time to time on my R-51 Thinkpad when using Firefox the mouse just freezes, Right and left click buttons work but the pointer will not move.  A few minutes later (just let it be) and it's ok again.  May be as short as 10 to 20 seconds or may be 2-3 minutes, very random in nature.

This ONLY happens with Firefox, can be any web page, yahoo mail, RV.net Rvforum.net or even here.  Only affects mouse movement, nothing else. and self corrects.

Suspect a conflict between the mouse driver and firefox on teh TP R-52

Also, Seems to only affect the TRACK POINT, If i plug in a USB mouse, no problmes.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Vist web pages.  I usually have multiple tabs open when this happens
2.Try to move mouse pointer
3.
Actual Results:  
Mouse will freeze for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes

Expected Results:  
Mouse pointer moveing
