Stuck trackball / trackpad issue - charlespine - 06-27-2020

I'm currently using an old Kensington trackball with my PBP. It works great, but several times a day, it doesn't work correctly; It will either get stuck, select text (even though don't select anything, or some fields on a website won't work like clicking on a checkbox). 

In order to fix it, I have to tap my trackpad. After that, everything works well for hours. This issue happens several times a day.

I've tried multiple fixes from the wiki and I'm using the factory version of Manjaro. I've also tried using a different USB port and turning off the trackpad using Fn+F7. No difference.

uname -a:

Linux pinehost 5.7.6-1-MANJARO-ARM #1 SMP Fri Jun 26 18:30:57 PDT 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Any tips?
