Mouse wheel now 'scrolls' page forward/back function. WTF?

OldER Mycroft
About five minutes ago it started.

Acer Aspire 1363 WLMi, 2GB, nVidia GeForce 5200 128MB, Acrox 800 dpi 5-button mouse
The mouse scroll wheel won't scroll through anything - it acts like the browser page back, page forward function - the function that the left and right mouse buttons have done for years.

I'm currently relegated to using screen border scrollers and Firefox drop-menu arrows.

It is really getting on my T!TS !!!

Any ideas how to get my normal scroller back?

    somehow you have "activated" the Wheel Mouse Controller. Did you install software for the mouse? If so the setup should be in the software. You should be able to set it back to default. Also check the Mouse settings in Control Panel.

    Earlier (obviously!) today I was having login problems with TR. Copious quantities of caffeine, involving trips to kettle and back, then momentary loss of short-term memory!

    I had 2 implementations of TR running simultaneously - BOTH hiding inside ONE taskbar tab!

    When I killed off the other TR the mouse returned to normal. Great, except I still don't know WHY the mouse went haywire.

    Anyway, thanks for replying. Clearly no-one else gives a toss.

    get a bit like that around here at times. I think it really depends on who is on at the time. Glad to see that you are up and running again.

    Interesting Glitch though
