    Hi to all on this thread,

    same problem here - MAC Pro updated to 10.7.5 - no right mouse button with mighty mouse any more. I installed the supplemental update some days ago, this didn't change the misbehaviour.

    I own three mighty mice - with none of them the right mouse button works. When I use the CONTROL-Key - as if I had no secondary mouse button - then the secondary mouse button menu shows up.

    Yes, I checked all the features in the mouse-pane.

    Very strange is the fact, that with a very cheap mouse by "Trust" the right button works fine! The mouse pane does not show a feature to change the behaviour of the secondary button for this mouse. Maybe this makes a difference?


    APPLE please there is to come another supplemental update :-) Go to work! It is your own hardware, that doesn't work!

    I'm seeing this as well across multiple machines. I have tried reverting the kernel extensions and iokit.framework back to their 10.7.4 versions but no luck so far.

    I am seeing this as well.


    My USB Mighty Mouse worked fine on 10.7.4, but sure looks like 10.7.5 broke it. Tried all the usual:  trashed the relevant preference files, zapped PRAM, reset SMC. No go.


    I have a Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse - both of which work OK.


    I also found that the Mighty Mouse works on Mountain Lion 10.8.2 (too bad the iMac that I'm working with can't be upgraded to Mountain Lion!).


    I have submitted an official bug report on this issue to Apple.

    Same issue here.  Mid 2007 Mac mini, Mighty Mouse.  As it happens I just did a clean install of 10.7.5 onto the machine using a freshly downloaded copy of Lion, and so there aren't a lot of other variables involved.  Right click is non-functional.

  • Thomas Tubbiola Level 1 (15 points)

    Did some testing today. I was able to get it working with a clean install of 10.7.3 and then applying the 10.7.4 and 10.7.5 combo updates.

    Thomas, where can i get 10.7.3 for download?


  • Thomas Tubbiola Level 1 (15 points)

    I don't know. I always keep copies of the installers when I get them just in case. You may be able to find a copy on the Apple Developer site.

    I had the same problem, what fixed it for me:




    Uncheck secondary mouse button


    Apply changes


    Go back and recheck secondary mouse button


    Then it started working.

  • RG777 Level 1 (0 points)

    This doesn't work for me.

    In the right click select menu i see that not only "secondary" checked, but "mission control" function.

    I'm having this problem too. I just updated from Snow Leopard to Lion 10.7.5 on my 2006 iMac (that won't run Mountain Lion, so that fix won't work) and my USB Mighty Mouse's secondary click no longer works. I've tried everything that everyone else has suggested and finally resorting to plugging in an old Logitech mouse and using it (I can function better without 360 scrolling than I can without a right click). If anyone finds a solution, I would love to know!

    I'm having the same problem, too, jessirae (and I also have a 2006 iMac, recently upgraded from Snow Leopard to 10.7.5 Lion).


    I found a claimed workaround in another thread (involving USB Overdrive), but I would prefer that Apple provide a fix:



    Another problem I've noticed (possibly related) is that after restarting, keyboard shortcuts don't work until I click on the Desktop.  For example, if I type "Shift-Command-H" after restarting, all I get is an alert sound instead of my Home folder appearing.  Argh!

    I've also submitted a bug report to Apple.

    I am a recent convert to the Apple world and I have to say I am utterly shocked that they would put out a major OS release that would completely break both their own legacy "Mighty Mouse" and their latest "Magic Mouse" and do nothing about it.  How it slipped through their QA is hard to fathom and not even acknowledging it is even worse.  The only entry devices to their computers are the keyboard and the mouse and they killed one of them.  Does this mean if they killed the keyboard, they would ignore that as well?


    I really hope Microsoft makes a comeback just to give Apple some competition because they are getting more and more apathetic about supporting their customers.  This is completely inexcusable.

    Me too. I am very disappointed about Apple OS X quality.
