Ever since upgrading to mountain lion my cursor has changed from an arrow to "cross hairs."  This oocurs not only in safari but other programs.  sometimes it's an arrow sometimes it's a cross hair.  For example, in this forum when I move the cursor over the tabs "store" "mac" "ipod" "iphone" etc sometimes the cursor is an arrow and then it changes to cross hairs.  In the body of the page it is always a cross hair even when i scroll over hyperlinks.  I've restarted my computer a few times and sometimes the arrow comes back - but only for a short period of time and then it's back to the cross hairs which I find quite anoying.  Any idea how to get teh cursor to stay as an arrow?  For what it's worth, the cursor always stays as an arrow as long as I'm on the tabs I have open or any area above them.  As I said, this doesn't happen just in Safari, it also happens in other programs like Word.
