sounds like you've enabled "quick edit mode" for your console windows.
in this mode, clicking in the window does the same thing as "edit/mark";
that is, it blocks output, changes the console title, and waits for you to
mark some text.

to switch it off, use the "properties/option" panel (which you can find
via the console's window menu)
