Re: PS2 mouse won't scroll on Firefox 17 web pages - why not?
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).
