Hi there, i've used firefox as my web browser in linux for sometime now and i have this irritating problem when i scroll down a page quickly. It seems to interpret quick scrolling as wanting to cycle back (or forth) through my webpage history rather than up or down the page. I've looked in the setup for both the mouse and the browser and cant find the option to disable it. Was wondering if anyone knew how to stop it to keep my sanity when looking through long webpages. It doesnt happen on the same browser in windows
I don't have the details. Yet it sounds like the software has a bug. I'd try to see if there is an updated version of Foxfire, and see if installing that doesn't solve it. If not I'd send its programmers a detailed bug report.
# Mouse wheel mapping. Default is to map vertical wheel to buttons 4 & 5,
# horizontal wheel to buttons 6 & 7. Change if your mouse has more than
# 3 buttons and you need to map the wheel to different button ids to avoid
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)
I have a logitech explorer mouse with two click buttons and a scroll wheel (which can act as another button if depressed) I presume that makes it have 2+2 buttons. I added the commands as suggested and it hasnt had any effect. On further investigation, the webpage scrolling only occurs if it violently scroll up having just scrolled down (if that helps).
