Many mouse problems inside guest Ubuntu and Mint

Hello,

i am facing strange mouse problems I don't know how to fix/solve/configure. could you help ?
let me explain:
    my Host ia a Mac Book with BigSur 11.6.1 and my VirtualBox is 6.1.30 r148432 (Qt5.6.3)
    my VMs Guests are Ubuntu 20.4, Ubuntu 21.04, and MINT 20.02
    mouse moves are fast and ok in VMs,
the issue 1:
    File finders/explorers/manager applications does not work well and leads to annoying behaviors.
    for example some times a double click does not respond by opening a folder and after that it seems that the application thinks I want to move the folder to some other place. I cannot get rid of that except sometimes again by hitting ESC key on keyboard or by "clicking right" the mouse
    Sometimes this makes the VM hanging for a while.

the issue 2:
    when I press "right button" on the mouse, the guest receives the message and the file submenu opens for that selected files but as soon as I release the button the sub menu is closed
it s totally impossible to work with this virtualbox
I would appreciate any suggestion/help

Please pick one VM that exhibits this problem.

Start the VM from full power off, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Please right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip the log file, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

If I am the only one to have the problem where could be my configuration problem ?

For some reason you provided a log by editing your original post instead of making a new post. When you do that there no notification of a new post, so your query will be lost in the past.

Make sure you are not capturing the host mouse using a USB filter. VirtualBox is a host app, so the host needs to own the keyboard and mouse.

Hello all,
The problem is also there on OS Monterey. Nevertheless I have some news for you, it might help for investigation of the problem.

I did connect a very large display on my MacBook with HDMI cable, I don't use anymore view scaling for the VM. Now when I push the vm mint or ubuntu window to this second display, I have no more problem at all ?!?!
Hope it can help, the solution is quite good for me, I can use VirtualBox now
