Mouse behaving oddly in Live 9

I have just updated to Live 9 and the mouse functions seem to be all over the place. I am running Live on a MacBook Pro and use a bluetooth mighty mouse as well as the trackpad on the laptop and both seem to behave very strangely when I right click, try to change the level of any fader/parameter or when I try to change the velocity in a midi clip. Both the trackpad and the mighty mouse behave the same. The mouse functions in any other application work fine. Any ideas on how I fix this?

    I have the same problem trying to control faders, volume, and zoom on Windows 8.1.  I went to that post above, I was already set with -AbsoluteMouseMode but I did it again.  It did not change anything.

    There has to be another fix for this.

    If you still need help with the Abelton mouse issue , you have to change the size settings on your computer to a 100% or a 125% in windows.  This was my problem. 

    Control panel/appearance an personalization/display/change size of all items.

    This should be easy to find for windows 8 users.  It was for me.  Be sure to do this before trying the AbsoluteMouseMode correction.

    This happened to me, just follow this step

    - Create a Options.txt file and place it in the Ableton preferences folder (In WIN vista/7/8: users\appdata\roaming\Ableton\ live [Your version]\ Preferences) (IN OSX: Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Ableton/Live[your version of live]/

    Just make sure its in the SAME folder as the preferences.cfg file

    - Put the following text in this Options.txt:

     

    -AbsoluteMouseMode
