Dear FreeBSD users,

I have successfully installed FreeBSD 11.0RC2, I have installed Lumina
as my desktop, it is small and does not use much memory.  I like it
and have run it successfully on another machine running DragonFly.  I
have dbus_enabled="YES" in /etc/rc.conf and added hald_enable="YES" as
well, but I lose mouse functionality when I switch from firefox to a
terminal and then try to switch back to firefox, the mouse pointer
gets lost and looks like a capital i .  I have to use alt keys
sometimes to quit applications.  I have searched for guides to see
what I am missing, but cannot find anything.  Any advice out there to
troubleshoot the mouse issue.  Mouse is a usb mouse device usm0 from
Microsoft, and I also have moused_enabled="YES" in /etc/rc.conf.
Advice, pointers and/or suggestions to fix this issue will be

Best Regards,
