    I think the behavior referred is when you right click, hold that right click and then highlight something in whatever context menu appears, and then let go of the right click it opens the highlighted action.
    I think this is just a default for X11.

    OK, that explains it a bit better, assuming that is the problem.

    However it's a problem easily solved by not holding the right button; just a simple quick press the same as when clicking the left hand button.

    @deadflowr Yes exactly, the problem is that this functionality is messing with me when I use certain programs. For instance, when I use QtCreator IDE, it's too sensitive. It's automatically following links just by right clicking. It acts as though I used this feature when I am just attempting to open the context menu and haven't made a decision as to what link I want to click within that menu. So I was hoping there was a way I could just turn it off entirely.

    You could probably use something like easystroke to manipulate the button:
