In the last three days my mouse click button started acting up. At first sometimes I would click and it would think I clicked twice. Then I would click places and it would not recognize it. And now if I click and it thinks I'm holding down the click button. it does all these three functions interchangeably.
I thought it was just the button on the trackpad itself, but it was doing the same thing when I plugged in a mouse to the USB port. My mouse settings appear to be normal. The keyboard commands work fine, so I can still execute functions.
I have a black macbook, version 10.4.11, and it is three years old. Any thoughts as to what it might be or how to fix this problem?
