    Hm, I think Linux has pretty good support for MS mice actually... I guess if you're using the generic mouse driver, try switching to the specific driver written for your mouse... Or maybe you need a new driver version. I don't have a wheel mouse, so I don't really know, could be a Mozilla problem :dunno:

    yea you can, cd into X11 directory... i think its

    /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
    or
    /etc/X11/XF86Config and change

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection

    to

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection


    just the protocol portion.. this is just an example of mine
