Layers don't place where I move them to in Photoshop

For a couple versions now, I've had trouble with moving layers in Photoshop (currently on 21.2.1). I move the layers and after I release my mouse they move either a few or many pixels in either direction. They never stay where I'm placing them.

To clarify: do you mean you are moving the layers in the Layers panel or are you moving pixels with the Move tool in the document window?

Oh, I'm moving the pixels with the move tool and my mouse.

 

This doesn't happen when I'm using my keyboard.

Hi Sylvia,

Thank you for clarifying. Can you try another mouse to see if that's the issue?

It does happen, but considerably less

Hi

What kind of mouse do you have? Is it one with a trackpad like the Mighty Mouse or Magic Mouse?

Yes, for both tries I was using trackapds

 

Actually, toying around with it a little bit more I think I know the issue now. I think I'm moving my mouse too early after placing the object and don't give it enough time to actually place.

 

So I move the object, let go muy mouse, and then move to another area before the transform controls shpw up again (I guess indicating it's now placed)
