I knew this happened last time too, but couldn't remember why. I finally figured it out.
In Firefox, go into Settings, turn off chat. Reboot (I know, shouldn't have to do that, but I had to). Now, mouse works. Go back in and turn it back on, and it's still fine.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to connect to it via adb/mtp/mass_storage for quite some time. adb via wifi works, but is dog slow when running connectedCheck.
Luckily, I figured out how to fix it yesterday (and thus the reason I am leaving this post so I can find it in a years time when I forget yet again).
It's completely incompatible with USB hubs. While all my other devices are plugged in through a single hub so that I can test on multiple devices, this CM10 device requires that I plug it in directly. Once I did that, it started working normally.
Why didn't I think of that earlier? Did I mention that none of the other devices have this problem? Just the CM10 device.

I've been using the LG v10 for about a day so far, an upgrade from my HTC One m7 GPe.
Overall, it's a nice device. A bit big, but I should be able to get used to that since I used to have the first gen Galaxy Note.
The UI is a little different... In the app drawer, there is a Google subfolder. You can add additional apps to it, but can't sort them. Actually doesn't look like you can remove them either. Haven't found any way to add additional folders yet. I was able to hide all the AT&T bloatware, so that's something.
Second screen? Eh still haven't decided if it is gimmick or useful. I didn't buy it for that feature anyway.
I was going to replace the launcher with the Google Now launcher, but I like that it is a doubly linked list so I'll keep it for now.
I do like that there it's a dedicated button for screenshots - the HTC was notorious for making me try try again. I also like that I can change the soft buttons ( order and content ).
I do not like the buttons on the back. I'm sure I'll get used to them, but whoever thought it was a good idea to encourage people to accidentally put their finger on the camera lens repeatedly was obviously not a photo buff.
I haven't run any cpu or ui benchmarks yet, but it seems rather quick. Speedtest wasn't looking great. Time will tell.
And in case you are wondering why I went with this phone, it was mostly because I wanted to try out the manual camera mode. I don't expect it to beat out my Canon, but it seemed i interesting. Also, removable battery and sd are hard to come by these days.

I'm probably jumping the gun, but I am hopeful.
I was having a problem where my new OctoFire hub was disconnecting quite often -- especially if using something like Android ScreenMonitor.
I think it is fixed. I found the suggestion to disable the autosuspend here.
Edit the /etc/default/grub file and append to the GRUB_CMDLINE_

I found this article from 2 years ago which I couldn't really follow to the letter. My nv only had one of the specified settings. I don't have ccsm installed, etc.
The ONLY change I made was:
- sudo su - root
- echo CLUTTER_PAINT=disable-clipped-redraws:disable-culling >> /etc/environment
So far it seems to be working fine.
