If you double click something in a chest or any type of storage it gathers all other materials of the same type together like if there are multiple iron ingots in a chest but are not stacked if you double click on it it will turn it into a stack of however many there are all together

That means you are press ing the "pick block" button which is binded on Mouse3 button (scroll wheel button) by default. And the bind for placing block is Mouse2 (Right Mouse Button) by default. Try to restore them, if it doesn't help then it's something with your mouse or/and its drivers/software
