This is an ongoing issue over many versions. I just haven't complained about it until now because it's not a serious problem.
When starting up a FreeBSD guest with the guest additions installed, the first three mouse clicks always have no effect.
The 4th and subsequent clicks behave normally.
The mouse moves fine and mouse-over actions work from the beginning.
Are you talking about mouse in an X11-session, or in the text mode (with moused)?
X11 session, thanks.
BTW, you can download a FreeBSD guest that exhibits the symptom here:
Ooops, forgot to mention... VM login credentials at
Any thoughts about this?
I just installed a TrueOS desktop system in VirtualBox and it exhibits the same symptom.
If you can suggest what to look at, I'd be happy to patch and test the port myself.
