Whenever I click any of the buttons on the mouse (right, left or scroll buttons), the pointer moves to the top left of the screen and clicks the applications menu, and when I release the click, the pointer moves back to where it was previously. I've tried mousekeys, but the same happens when I click using mousekeys. Any ideas?

I've had similar issues. It's hard to tell, but I believe you may be experiencing the same thing. It's a bug in xorg and not restricted to ubuntu.
Done, it seems to have worked for me. What I did: 1. Added ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa to my sources list via synaptic 2. Ran update manager, reloaded and applied all updates. 3. Reboot First reboot failed to low res graphics, I chose the option to create a new profile and restarted, this time it worked, or at least has so far.
