Modify Mighty Mouse horizontal scrolling in Firefox
Authored by: BrentT on Aug 26, '05 11:37:39AM

I like the ability to scroll through my history, but the MM wheel requires a very light touch to control. It also requires you to be careful to only scroll vertically when viewing a page. I had a Microsoft Optical Wireless 2.0 mouse that used a horizontal push on the scrollwheel; it worked quite nicely.

For the MM and FireFox I have been unable to get the speed through the history to change. It seems you go 2 or 3 pages at time unless you are very careful.

My boss brought in a MM and I used it for a few minutes. Like Brent, I already enjoy using the MS Optical Wireless mouse, with a scroll wheel that has side-to-side action [with tactile feedback and a quiet, but audible 'click', too]. The boss would have bought me a MM, but I turned it down. I'm not happy with the sensitivity of the scroll ball, but what really gets me down is the squeezy-buttons on the sides of the mouse. Now that I've compared it with my MS mouse, I realize how good my mouse is [the keyboard that came with it's nice, too]. Thanks to CAlvarez over in the forums for recommending it to me!

I got the MM because I was having problems with the Microsoft Mouse. It would track fine but I had continued problems with clicks being recognized. I tried all sorts of uninstalls, installs, and pref purges to no avail. I have been happy with the MM but would like more control of the buttons.
