Mouse stops working sometimes

  • I'm using Opera 32. I usually have several Opera windows open, each with from 4 to 8 or more tabs open. Periodically (I can't predict the conditions under which this happens) in one and only one of the windows, the mouse stops working within every tab/Web page in that window. I can use the mouse to move the window itself around, and to click from tab to tab to select Websites. But in every site/tab in that Window, nothing happens when I click a URL, control, or fillable text field, nor can I scroll the page with the scroll bar or mouse wheel. In the other Opera windows the mouse still works normally. If I close the malfunctioning window and open a new window with all the same tabs, the mouse works normally there. Has anyone else experienced this?

  • Does it happens on 33?

  • Well, I'll have to get to a point where I have time to fool around with another Opera update to check on that. At the moment I'm just curious whether anybody else experiences this. Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, by the way.

  • I have the same issue... the left click is simply ignored on links, eg. a facebook profile picture can't be enlarged to view. It works in other browsers... I'm running Opera 33, and a CCleaner run seems to solve the problem.... hope it does not appear again.

  • I having the same issues as well. I'm playing games on Facebook and my mouse is all over the place? I'm using Windows XP 32bit and Opera Version 33. Is there a change in Adobe Flash??

  • Good to know I'm not alone! For me it's not Flash-related, since the mouse quits working in quite ordinary non-Flash Web pages (e.g., Wikipedia, Google, DuckDuckGo).

  • Yea same thing here. Opera has allot going for it but it needs some debugging and some more options like tab opening options and open in new tab from the search bar with out key combos.
