My magic mouse left click funtion fails when I watch videos. Normal web browsing does not seem to affect but ten minutes or so of video playing renders left clicking inoperable. Other functions (scrolling, cursor moving) work. Rebooting my computer fixes the problem but will go again as soon as I stream something. Netflix seems to be a certain culprit as do a few other types of streaming. Youtube only sometimes. I think it is bluetooth related because when I use a app on my iPhone to act as a track pad (via wifi) no problem. This is a new problem and I have had the same mouse well over a year. I have tried different batteries, turning the mouse on/off etc with no results. Ideas? Thank you.
