This question actually belongs in the vim_use group, please continue
it there. In addition it was quite recently answered.

The behaviour of the mouse depends on a number of options. See in particular:

:help 'mouse'
:help 'mousemodel'
:help 'selectmode'
:help :behave

and remember that

:verbose set mouse? mousemodel? selectmode?

will tell you the current values of these options, and, for each of
them, the latest script (if any) which set it.
