Very plausible and also possible too. You can easily check this theory by unplugging the mouse before launching your browser, then use just your keyboard to launch the browser and open the Favorites/Bookmark.

I am sure you already know how to do this without detailed instructions.

PS. Since I am already crazy, nothing ever drives me crazy!

Do you have a newer mouse.....they go bad and can cause some pretty funky problems. Do you have anything very near or touching your touchpad.....this can give your computer fits. Check your keyboard for gunk on it, stuck keys, etc!
