    I am fairly new to Macs (not totally) but this one has me stumped. Something happened in the last two days or so to my display such that every time I move the mouse (macbook pro - for both a usb mouse and built-in mouse), the whole background display shifts in the opposite direction by maybe 5-10 pixels. It's a small shift, but it's driving me insane visually. Anyone seen this before?

    Could it be that you have Zoom enabled? Have a look in System Preferences, under Universal Access.

    THANKS! That was it. Must've fat-fingered and turned it on by accident.

    my eyes are already in recovery mode!

    You may have accidently zoomed, which can be done by holding Control and using the scroll wheel on your mouse.
