Every time I hold the left click button the game goes to the pause screen. I have to click back to game a lot to mine and harvest trees. Does anybody know what I need to do to fix this?
Performance has nothing to do with it. This is a common problem for lots of people, trying to play in browsers and most people do not have stuck ESC keys.
For most people, what is happening is some app (possibly the browser itself?) is stealing mouse focus, which causes the game to pause. The pause is a nice feature for when you have to leave the browser game for a minute. When you hit escape it pauses automatically while you do other things. However, in this case some app seems to be grabbing mouse focus, which causes the game to pause. It happens to me only when I hold down either right or left click.
A couple things to check:
- Chrome seems to do this a lot, try a different browser.
- Do you have an app running which refreshes itself every once in a while, or grabs focus? Examples: an alarm, IM alerts, running a macro.
- Is your java up-to-date? Minecraft runs in it, and depends on it being updated frequently.
- Is your escape key stuck? It does happen, just give it a tap and make sure its working properly.
