On the occasions when I click, and don't get rapid scrolling plus selection, _IF_ I move the mouse very slowly to the right, I can select a portion of the sound. However, if I continue to move and select slowly, suddenly the audio will begin scrolling rapidly, even though my mouse pointer is nowhere near the edge of the screen. I will have selected ten times what I intended. Releasing the mouse button leaves this excess selection highlighted. If I then click outside the highlighted area, I immediately get an even larger selection, with even faster scrolling. This is with a simple mouse click, no mouse movement at all. When I click and drag to the left, scrolling and selection continue rapidly to the right. Only if I very aggressively drag to the left can I reverse the selection direction, at which point it selects and scrolls very rapidly to the left.
I'm glad that I still have 2.8.5, which is still working for me. I'm using a MacBook Pro, macOS 10.14.6 Mojave with all updates.
This is not a rare situation. New versions often have undiscovered bugs, which affect some users and not others. It would be helpful to users, if we could download the immediately prior version, when we discover that the updated version has a fatal flaw on our system. This can affect different users at different times. On the download page, I can only find version 2.8.6 and 2.6.2 and older. I think you ought to provide a way to download the last two or three versions, with appropriate warnings, for those of us who are suffering unexpected problems.
