    Mouse buttons in Firefox

    I've started using FireFox recently, and I've looked around a bit but haven't been able to find an answer. I have a mouse with handy back/forth side buttons, which don't do anything in FireFox. Is there some way I can set those two buttons to work?

    That's really strange. I have a logitech wireless mouse with the back/forth buttons and they work with Firefox. For some odd reason though sometimes they don't once I'm too far in depth of pages and I have to manually do it. You could always try either reinstalling it or going to the maker's website (which rarely ever seems to help).

    Logitech is quite good at supporting alternative software. Is it a Microsoft mouse?

    My mouse is logitech, which makes it sound stranger to me that it doesn't work. Which firefox version are you using mystic_skies?

    I'm still on Firefox 0.8.0 (haven't bothered upgrading in a while).

    This may sound dumb, but have you installed the drivers for your mouse?
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
