mozilla takes ages to load and mouse crashes in flulbox


I have slack 10 and when i launch mozilla it takes a while to start. Also, sometimes, mouse stopes working in fluxbox and generally fluxbox doesn't seem to work correctly. ften when i move mouse, menus come up even though i didn' t click or right click the mouse.

Can anyone tell how to fix this and get the flux box work correctly?

for mozilla, run it from a command line like xterm, after a crash, what error message does it spew ?
for the mouse, have you corretly set the mouse portocol in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

if your mouse is an IMPS/2 or PS/2 and you have selected "Microsoft" the mouse cursor will go nuts,
same if its a Microsoft mouse and you have selected PS/2 or IMPS/2.

in the mouse section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf have a look for the "Protocol" option in the mouse section.
