For the last few days I have had erratic browser and mouse behaviour. I am using Firefox V40.0.1 as the default browser and also have Microsoft Edge installed. The erratic behaviour is the same in both. They are both erratic when using the back button going back several pages at a time or sometimes just returns to my homepage, the backspace button on the keyboard works fine and both browsers just go back the one page at a time. Also the browsers forward buttons shows the same erratic behaviour. Other programmes show no sign of misbehaving. The other thing thats happening is that the mouse (a Logitech wireless mouse) is misbehaving on left click sometimes requiring several clicks to select. However when clicking on a button the button gives and indication that it has been activacted but nothing happens and I have to click again to get it to work. Right click works fine. I have gone into the mouse settings and changed all of them and applied the new settings with no disernable change in behaviour and then gone back into settings and reset the original settings again with no change in behaviour. This behaviour is also intermittant and doesn't happen every time I use the mouse. I have also tried a USB mouse and get the same behaviour. I am now suspecting a Windows update that happened a while ago. Would it be OK to remove this update, under the new system can I even remove the update and if I do I am sure it will only update itself again and cause the same problem. It is a niggle I can live with in hope that the next update will cure it but any advice would be most welcome.
