Every time I go to break a block in Minecraft it opens the in-game menu.

I don't know how to stop this from happening, any ideas?

    Check your key bindings. You may have bound the menu to the mouse button. Reset your bindings to default. – fredley Apr 25 '13 at 9:01

    Please include more detailed specifications of your computer. Sometimes, touchpad drivers can cause strange things to happen. – Alvin Wong Apr 25 '13 at 12:12
  • does it happen when you point at the sky and click the mouse button as well or only when you try to break a block? – Xitcod13 Apr 25 '13 at 19:19

Try looking at your controls, I think that you have it so that if you left-click it opens the menu instead of Esc.

It's a Java bug. Try downloading and installing a different (newer, older, whatever) Java VM. As a workaround, hit more slowly, one click at a time. The bug seems to trigger when you hold the mouse button down for repeated clicks.

    How does one "hit more slowly, one click at a time"? When you release the mouse, you're no longer hitting and any damage done is undone.. – dlras2 Apr 25 '13 at 13:49

    I don't believe you. I think what you're describing is a LWJGL bug were the mouse-pointer becomes visible because of clicking. – Bobby Apr 25 '13 at 16:41

    This answer makes me question whether you play this game. – Coronus Apr 25 '13 at 22:56
