Hallo,

I have been using Ubuntu for a few weeks and there is one issue that I cannot find the answer to.

When running Firefox the use of the F5 key causes my left mouse button to stop working...

Under all other circumstances my mouse works fine.. it is a logitech, drivers for which I hear are not supported in Linux.

I have tried another very old mouse and the same problem occurs.

I am also running Ubuntu on my laptop and the F5 key works fine.

Just wondering if anybody has any idea why...

Cheers,

Lish

Hi and Welcome

I don't have an answer , but I have a Logitech mouse running with 10.10 and F5 does nothing but refresh Firefox when I press it. I may have different mouse and driver.

Do you have any custom keyboard shortcuts or configurations that may affect how the F5 key is working ?
That is the only thing I can think of.
