Mouse selection auto-deselect when changing window

Posted

Hello,

When I'm on Firefox and I switch back to my desktop (or other software) and try to make a selection with my mouse (hold left button + drag) the selection auto deselect itself after less than a second like if I've release the left button but it's still pressed, look this video it will be more compressible:

At first I thought it was my mouse (Logitech G502) or Windows 10 but after hours off troubleshooting (reboot, update, reinstall driver, try other mouse...) I realize that this problem only appear on Firefox and Google Chrome, all my other software work perfectly fine with the mouse.

My version is Firefox Quantum 61.0 (64 bits) without any addons active

ISSUE SOLVED !

It's a issue with the Logitech Gaming Software not Firefox, I've configure different macro profile for Firefox so when I switch between my desktop and Firefox my mouse's profile change and apparently cause the mouse to release the click. I should have thought of that before.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your answers.

I have tested on my system and I have no issues like this. Does the issue still occur when you run Firefox Safe Mode?

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

Ah that worked ! But as soon as I exit Windows safe mode the problem reappear. Also I forgot to mention that I've 2 screens (I thought about that because safe mode only manage one screen) but the problem appear even when the cursor and Firefox are on the (same) main screen.
