Sometimes the movement of the cursor on the screen in response to my moving the mouse (wireless, USB, Logitech) is erratic or jumpy. Usually the hard drive activity light is on, so it seems like some other task is being given higher priority than the mouse. How can I elevate the priority of the...

For some strange reason, whenever Firefox is open and after visiting ordinary websites (like ESPN), Firefox continuously uploads data. This last time, it was stuck at almost three kilobytes per second. I'm sure it's nothing, but it's troublesome.
