Version 126.0 (64 bit) Mozilla Firefox for Linux Mint mint-001 - 1.0

I use a wireless keyboard and mouse via a USB connector. History - I have had to reboot to clear the mouse interface error when it occurs for many months. I've had a open issue in the linux mint forums as I thought it may be a driver issue. Things worked tolerable until 5-29-2024 as my wireless mouse has been deactivated. I opened a second window(tab) in a new window and my wireless mouse permanently no longer works. It was quite startling. The wireless keyboard is fine. A wired USB mouse works. My HP laptop mousepad works. However, once the error occurs mouse clicks are no longer responded to and the active area remains the partial window where the mouse was last active. Currently the mouse cursor does not respond to movement inputs from the wireless mouse, so seriously worse.

Have the mouse settings or driver have been tampered with?

I currently do not have the same or similar issues with Chromium.
