There are five methods below for you to fix the Razer mouse double clicking issue. You can try them one by one until you find the one that works for you.
Method 1: Change USB ports
To fix your Razer mouse double clicking, you can try changing the USB ports (if you have multiple USB ports available).

2) Remove the batteries.
3) Press all the buttons repeatedly for 30 seconds. This will drain all the static electricity that may be trapped in the mouse.
4) Put the batteries back in the mouse.
5) Turn the mouse back on.
6) Once the mouse is reconnected, check to see if the double clicking issue is fixed.
If Method 2 doesn’t fix the issue, you can try Method 3.
Method 3: Check the double-click speed of the mouse
When the double-click speed is set very low, clicking at two different times may be interpreted as a double-click instead. So check and make sure the mouse double-click speed is set properly. To do that, follow these steps:
1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key, type “mouse settings”. Then select Mouse settings from the result list.
2) Scroll down and click the Additional mouse options link. Then the Mouse Properties window will pop up.
3) In the Mouse Properties window, check if Double-click speed is set too low.
If the double-click speed is set very low, increase it by moving the slider to the right. You can set the speed to the highest. After that, click Apply -> OK to save the changes.
If Method 3 doesn’t fix the issue, continue to try Method 4.
Method 4: Update mouse drivers
The problem can be caused by outdated mouse drivers. To fix it, you can try updating the mouse driver.
Firstly, uninstall the mouse driver.
1) Open Device Manager.
2) Expand the category “Mice and other pointing devices”, and then right-click on your mouse device and select Uninstall device.
3) After uninstalling, unplug and then re-plug your mouse. You’ll need to wait for a few seconds until the mouse works again.
Secondly, update the mouse driver.
Once the mouse works again, updating the mouse driver. You can go to Razer’s official website to download the latest version of the mouse driver.

If Method 4 doesn’t work for you, try Method 5.
Method 5: Check the microswitch of the button
If none of the above methods resolves the problem, it is likely that the problem is caused by a faulty microswitch. So the last resort you can try is to check the microswitch of the button.
To check the microswitch, you’ll need to unscrew the mouse. This requires a bit of technical skills. If you’re not comfortable doing this on your own, it’s recommended you contact an IT support for help.
In most cases, you’ll need to replace the microswitch with a new one. In that case, you might want to buy a new mouse instead.
