Some programs in the launcher, for instance Libre Office start with a single click on the icon, other programs (Krusader) need a double click. How come? Can I change this behaviour?

Ever since I upgraded to Fedora 17 from Fedora 14, single clicking my mouse has become very difficult. Single click registers as a double click 70% of times. All the settings that I see have to do with delay between 2 clicks to be considered a double click, but here I am not making 2 clicks.
Let's say that you have multiple firefox windows open. What you see happen is an additional arrow points to it's icon in the launcher. However, if you double click the icon, it displays all of the windows in a spread out fashion.
About 3/4 of time when I single-click and drag a title bar in a quick motion, it's interpreted as a double-click. I've replaced the USB mouse and adjusted double-click interval times in the Gnome applet, but the problem persists. Searching on this forum didn't get me any answers. Have you dealt with this and know the solution?
I recall earlier Linux distributions where almost every application worked by using a single left mouse click. Documentation commonly chided people not to double click. The implication was that if you double clicked then you were a windows Neanderthal.
I use Ubuntu 14.04 and have 2 problems:
1. I can't remove items from the Unity launcher. When I right click on an icon and click on Remove from launcher, nothing happens.
2. I'm not able to change the order of the icons in the launcher. I click on an icon and hold my mouse button. Then I move the icon outside of the launcher. A little white line then takes it's place in the launcher.
Hi all, how are you?I am running the Awesome WM which does not have its own sitting for mouse double-click speed. Insuch situations you have to set the double-click speed through whichever tool-kit the applicationyou are using is based upon. For GTK2 apps this is not a problem, I simply placegtk-double-click-time=1000 into ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and I am good to go.
I just upgraded my Ubuntu version from 10.04 to 12.04. When I click a Launcher icon, such as Firefox (just an example), the application will not start. To start the application, I need to right click on the icon then click on the name of the application to get it started.
