    Hi, there.
    Here's my (strange) situtation: wireless mouse connected to a Samsung Tab S (wireless adapter via OTG cable). If i left-click on app icons, android tabs etc all goes well but when i start browsing on Chrome there's no left-click function. If i want for the mouse pointer to let the virtual keyboard appear - when I click on the Chrome search bar - I will have to select the virtual instead of the physical one in the tablet setting, which is ok...i can select a text by long left-button clicking as usual but, when there's a link to click, the pointer passing over it does recognize the...clickable hypertext but, when I click, nothing happens: click n click n click with no result. How's that?
    PS the mouse works like a charme on Windows as any other wireless mouse so it's not a device issue! Thx

    I have the same problem with any wired mouse and my Samsung Note 4. Chrome and webview don't accept left-click events. But the rest of android does.

    Same issue, it really sucks. Seems like this is new - pretty sure this was working just fine recently.

    Add me to the list I have a feeling when webview updated something got screwed up I have a Note 4 and Microsoft Bluetooth wedge mouse connected and this issue is very annoying I am no longer productive when I have my mouse connected. Who are we supposed to report this to? Google?

    I just figured out that it definitely is Android System WeView app, once I uninstall the updates left-click was back....

    It is a Samsung specific problem on Android 6.0.1. I've tested it on other devices with Android 6.0.1 and it works.
    I've updated a Samsung tablet to Android 7.0 and clicking is working again.

    I have this issue as well.
    Did as suggested and uninstalled updates for Android Web View (?)
    It then seemed to work for a while or at best sporadically. Anyone else found a permanent solution ?


    Edit: I have a Samsung Tab S with android 6.0.1 and a samsung wireless BT mouse.
