Re: PS2 mouse won't scroll on Firefox 17 web pages - why not?
Does it work properly with other browsers?
That's a good suggestion.
However, getting a chance to test the PS2 mouse in IE, Mele, Firefox self-corrected the mouse problem. It is now scrolling web pages correctly with either mouse without me having made any changes in anything at all.
This is the second problem in W7 64bit that corrected itself overnight.
I don't understand what caused the two problems to show up in the first place or what caused them to self correct, but guess as long as everything is now working as it should be there is no need to worry about it.
Still curious, however....

Maybe the PC was just tired.
Glad it's working now.

I haven't used a PS/2 mouse since XP on my old box (a few years now), but whenever I would swap a mouse that involved plugging it in, more often than not I'd have to reboot in order to get all features working properly; the basic features might work OK--or not, but the "advanced" features (acceleration, wheel, etc.) would not. For USB it didn't matter. (I don't know if this applies to your swapping process, but it's something to keep in mind. Windows will still spontaneously reboot after Auto-update maintenance if you allow it--even overnight.) Also, if it is an OS issue and not a Firefox issue, then you don't need to limit yourself to testing just browsers; any program that has a scrollbar should work, or not work, the same way. And if it's happened at least once and mysteriously "corrected itself", then it's likely to happen again (so you'll probably get to test out what is and isn't going on).
