@octesian I've been having this issue over the last ten years. Tried many different things, including environmental factors. The most likely reason seems to be excessive middle clicking.
It's becoming a particular pan in the ass lately because I need large ergonomic mice that I can't find in physical stores nearby, and I got blocked by Amazon.
My current solution is to use a steam controller at home. It's surprisingly comfortable.
@machado what about getting a 5-button mouse and mapping the thumb buttons to middle click. Use the wheel just for scrolling.
@octesian That's exactly the kind of simple solution I tend to overlook. Thanks. Much prosperity be upon your bloodline.
@machado Thanks for the thanks. I must say that it was rather disorienting to be thanked on social media.
