Camera rotation gets pointer stuck with mouse on MacOS

This bug has been lasting for a very long time already and has yet not been resolved, unknown date of start but was noticed after 2018 or 2019. The bug has been causing poor user experiences. Reproduction is simple:

  1. Spam right click and move your mouse around until
  2. Mouse becomes stuck in one place of the screen
  3. Try unstucking it – it’s there until you resolve the bug below

Unstucking it requires your MacOS to have multiple desktops which you can swipe to change. Swiping once and back unstucks it.

It is still unclear whether the bug is experiencing for other MacOS users or if it is the OS specifically. This mouse issue is only caused when using USB mouse, not the trackpad. Tested on:

Hardware: MacBook Air(11-inch, early 2015)
OS: Catalina 10.15.6

This has also happened to me, same reproduction steps as well.

Although what I do to unstick is press ‘Command + Space’ to bring up Spotlight Search, click back into Roblox window.
