Reviving my Blog – Firefox 3.6 Scroll Wheel Fix

Something that has been bugging me since I upgraded to Firefox 3.6.  My mouse wheel broke.  Now – you don’t realise you miss something until it is gone… and man did I miss it.

After trying many things (upgrading drivers, etc…) I just found a simple solution to my problem this morning.

Make sure “Microsoft Office 97 Scrolling emulation is turned on”.  I had “Universal Scrolling” set. There appears to be two different mouse wheel protocols and Firefox has started to only support one.  Thanks guys. 😉

Solution is here:

Now why Mozilla did not publish this in the release notes I have no idea!
