Wonky Mouse-Camera Syndrome

Hi, I've seen a few posts over the past year or so about this, but I can't remember if it's been addressed.

Attempting to adjust the camera by pressing and dragging either the right or left mouse button frequently causes the camera to "jump" in entirely unpredictable directions. I can be attempting to simply move the camera view up or down slightly, to compensate for ascending a hill or whatever, or to just get a different POV on an enemy; and the camera will suddenly swerve so that I'm looking up from underneath my character, looking right down on top, facing the opposite direction, etc.

I haven't yet tried using a wired mouse (mine is wire-free and optical), but I'm not sure how much that matters, if it does.

Are there any solutions to this?

I have a wired usb trackball and get this also so I don't think wireless has anything to do with it.

I have a wired USB optical mouse. Same issue since forever.

Good to know that it isn't the wireless nature of the mouse. No work arounds or fixes yet? That's a shame. Might try the touchpad on my laptop, but I can't say I'm expecting much difference.

I can say that with my previous trackball, a opti-mech as opposed to my fully optical current trackball that it happened far less often
