I have had the exact same trackball for years and love it
last year the standard left click started to be unpredictable, often double clicking which wasn't helpful
Luckily I haven't used the two small insert buttons and when I toook it apart I was able swap the two switches that were on the left side and my main left click is now working reliably again
you can buy replacement switches with similar markings but not necessarily from trusted sources I wanted a quick fix and only need the left click button to work reliably
Something to bear in mind if yours ever gives problems

Edit: if anyone wants to do this, I struggled for a while to get it apart as there is a screw in the middle of the bottom hidden under the label, you need to poke a hole in the label just above the "s" in mouse of the phrase "Marble Mouse USB"
