Might be helpful to know which version of Mint you are using (use inxi -S in a terminal if you don't know) and the brand and model of the mouse. Have you tried that mouse on a different computer? Or tried a different mouse on your Mint computer?

And have you tried what I suggested? Try a different mouse on your computer. And/or try that mouse on a a different computer.

The problem was in the mouse. I replaced and it solved the problem.

Thank You.
