I have an iMac,OS X 10.6.8 (it's the family's computer). I've been having some problems with the mouse.
Sometimes when i click with the right button and I scroll over the options, they won't highlight (this happens with a wireless apple mouse and a wired microsoft optical one). I hope you can understand what I'm saying.
I was watching a youtube video and I wanted to open a different video on a new tab, so I click on the video and create a new tab(right click), but when i try and visit the new tab, by clicking at the top of the window, it would automatically close the new tab when i clicked on it, this went on for about three times till I decided to open a tab with the video i wanted to see with the right click and then open a different tab (with the command button and T), with nothing on it, closed it so I could see the new video.
Sometimes when i left click and hold an item on the desktop to drag it, it will not release it when i stop pressing the left click button, so i'm forced to quit finder or press esc and click, to let go of the item.
What do you think could be the cause of the problems?
