Gnome3 ignores mouse tab scrolling

I am using Gnome3 on Arch Linux.

So far, I'd say that Gnome3 is doing well, but one problem is really annoying for me: I cannot use mouse wheel to switch between tabs, no matter if it's Nautilus, or gedit, or any other application I've used so far.

(Mouse wheel of course, works without any problems, and I can scroll horizontally).

Thanks for help,

That's strange. I do not have any problems with scrolling(swtiching) between tabs (anywhere). Are there drivers needed (I am not aware of any such need - just wondering)?

I'm not sure, but I don't think so. I mean, the scroll wheel works itself without any problems, so it seems like it's rather problem of Gnome3 applications. Perhaps some shortcuts or I don't know, it has always worked out of box for me.

bump, no progress so far.

Just to say it once more - scroll wheel works for standard vertical scrolling. Also, if there's longer file path displayed in nautilus, I can move it with scroll wheel.

What I can't do is to switch between tabs - that's the only problem.
