Question

Dock option not responding

Can open apps from dock but all right click functions cause dock action to freeze, clicking Apple icon releases this and can close apps from their menu option or force quit. Is there a way to turn off right click option that may have been done by accident?

Right click option works everwhere else

Just not on the dock, [no option to turn off right click option in mouse preferences.]

A few questions

You do have a two (or more) button mouse?
If yes, then the System Preferences/Mouse should have a configuration utility.

What does the Mouse Preference pane show

Don't think mouse settings have changed.

Just has the usual tracking speed, left or right hand use etc, it cannot be mouse settings since right click option works for every other program, just dock use affected and only in past week.
