Does it work if you disable OpenGl ? ->

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

Connected mouse & it works fine left-handed.
It is the Dell TouchPad that has issues.

Have not tried turning of OpenGL yet.
Though it should work regardless.
I have had no issues with other Windows Programs.

Seems the Touchpad is having issues.
Looks to be a common issue with Dell Laptops.

Could be the Logitech Driver - setpoint.
In the past Logitech did not get along well with Touchpads.

Then there's the fact I use a left-handed mouse.

I keep trying things and...

Best solution so far is to plug in the Logitech Device when using Libre Office.

Got to love computers - NOT!

I think this should be investigated separately, since bug 125201 is on Ubuntu and this one here on Windows, and this sounds rather like a platform-specific issue.
