With the mouse plugged in, try executing "lsusb." You should see the name of your mouse if Fedora is detecting it. Of what make and model is the mouse?

If the mouse will not work at all, and you did not set up a keyboard shortcut for Fedora to open the Terminal; you may want to switch over to the CLI by pressing CTRL+ALT+F2. You'll be prompted to log in with your credentials. You now have access to the terminal. CTRL+ALT+F1 to switch back. (As seen in Fedora 20)

Once that is accomplished, try what bitwiseoperator suggested. Example Output:
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 412b:2052 Dell Computer Corp. Optical 5-Button Wheel Mouse

To further assist, please edit your question to include the output of the aforementioned command.
