  • Mouse scroll wheel not working correctly.

    Just installed Firefox 4 and my mouse scroll wheel is not working correctly. When opening the program, I can scroll as normal for about 5/10 minutes. Then, suddenly, the mouse scroll wheel no longer works. I've since found that it is actually scrolling outside of Firefox. E.g. I had Outlook open and it was scrolling through my Outlook even though Firefox was the open window. I checked this multiple times and it always seems to be the case.
    Checked about:config as advised, everything looks correct on the mousewheel settings (i.e everything is set to default). Mouse drivers are up to date. No problems with any other programs. This issue started occurring in Firefox 4 beta. I switched back to 3.6 so I could continue scrolling. Updating to Firefox 4 caused the issue to recur.

    It seems a lot of people are having problems with the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball. I actually thought I was done for after just a few weeks of using my first (wired) one. But here I am years later with my wireless variant, beeing perfectly happy with it (in case you don't know, the wireless Mighty Mouse is a much better option due to it's laser based tracking system). In my experience, getting rid of fluff that interferes with the ball is quite easy on both types. Try blowing really hard directly at the trackball (optionally while you press it down with some pointed device) a few times. Rotate it and repeat as needed. Alternatively roll the mouse upside down on the microfiber cloth that probably came with your Mac.

  • Mouse tracking speed, 3rd party help!

    I have a Kensignton Mouse and I am running Kensington Mouseworks. I have a 23 inch screen and the mouse tracking speed even at the slowest setting (in Mouseworks software) is MUCH too fast. I am doing 3D work which requires precision.
    I have contacted Kensington but they are terrible, they keep telling me to change the setting in the Mouseworks software, or re-install the software, but I have done this to no avail.
    My question: is there another way to do this? Can I use other mouse software, or is there any setting in OSX to get my result?
    thanks in advance

    it says that bluetooth functionality isn't yet available, is there another driver that works with bluetooth?
    i just bought a logitech bluetooth mouse with ... a whole bunch of buttons. osx recognizes the mouse and it works great with the two mouse buttons, basic scroll functionality (it has omni scroll direction mouse wheel, but osx only lets it scroll up and down like a normal scroll wheel) and i can program any 3 of the 14 buttons (scroll wheel buttons included) to make expose work. The thing is, i want to be able to program every one of those buttons to do something, and i want to have the scroll wheel work properly along with the two page up/down buttons just in front/back of the scroll wheel. essentiallyl, a driver that will make it work the way it should.
    i've already checked the logitech website
    thanks

  • In Logic X, the mouse click wheel scroll is way too fast on the arrange window and the piano roll.  Is there a way to adjust this?

    In Logic X, the mouse click wheel scroll is way too fast on the arrange window and the piano roll.  Is there a way to adjust this?  This is the way I scrolled for MIDI editing on Logic 9

    Hi cris2121, assuming you're using a mouse from apple, go to >System Preferences<
    it's here where one can configure a mouse device.
    Additionally you can also configure Scrubbing in Logic: "When in scrub mode, you can slowly move the playhead in the Tracks Window and the Audio (and optional MIDI) will be played back. The playback speed depends on how fast you move the Playhead in either direction."
    Have a nice day!

  • How do I change what the middle mouse button/wheel does?

    I feel like an idiot asking this, but I can't figure this out...
    I've plugged in a bog standard 2 button + scroll wheel third button mouse, but I can't get the middle mouse button/wheel to behave like it would in Windows.  If I click it, it changes programs, hold it it brings up the task switcher thing.  It's like I'm pressing command + tab.
    I want it to work normally, where the program I'm using the middle button responds, not the OS.  Like in Firefox, I want to be able to close tabs with the middle mouse button, and open new links with it...instead all it can do is switch programs.
    Is there a way to do this?  Am I missing something obvious?

    Err...I don't know what happened, but I rebooted and now it's working like normal (knock on wood!).  Noooo idea how it ended up in that state!

  • In need of a Mighty Mouse Track Ball

    Something small and hard, fell in the mouse track ball area and while i was pressing it (upside down) on a piece of paper to clean it, that little hard piece of dust, carved the surface of my track ball making it unable to scroll without jumping around!
    So im now in the need of purchasing a new ball and replacing it! Does the ball as a part exist? Because i can't find anything on ebay! Any help?

    What exactly am i looking for in the "about this Mac" specs? I mean i have found the mouses info, i think this is it:
    but what numbers must be used in order to locate it from mouseballz website?

    Some other info:
    You  know that you can control Photoshop input fields http://screencast.com/t/ApVseKYRxz with the mouse scroll wheel. Pretty handy indeed. You just have to click on the field and spin the wheel and values changing.
    The problem:
    My mouse wheel cannot control the input fields in this way. I select the field, spin the wheel and nothing happen. When I spin it faster a couple of times, than the values get changing - pretty strange ha? Scrolling normally - do not change, scrolling fast change. But to scroll fast is not an option because I cannot change the values slightly with small increments... There is a bug really...
    What I tried and didn't work:
    1. Restarted Photoshop
    2. Plug/Unplug and change different USB slots for both receivers.
    3. Reintalling latest SetPoint Drivers (after uninstall I run ccleaner)
    4. Put all SetPoint settings to defaults (because I programmed some mouse keys to Photoshop specifically).
    5. Install earlier versions of SetPoint drivers.
    6. Set my UEFI BIOS to defaults.
    7. Restarted the BIOS to load all the drivers again, but still no luck
    (the last think I didn't do is to reinstall Photoshop)
    What I have investigated so far:
    1. When I restart the computer and run Photoshop it works perfect HA! , but after a seconds it do not words again ...
    2. When I stop SetPoint software, when I shut down it, it words perfect.
    3. When I unplug keyboard receiver it words perfect, but I do not have keyboard:)
    4. Everything works perfect in Illustrator and After effects.
    5. Also I noticed that when I scroll images in CameraRaw - http://screencast.com/t/xKnn6cY9 the I have to scroll harder and spin the wheel harder to scroll - the same problem.
    6. Also in photoshop and bridge scrolling here - is pretty smooth and works perfect - http://screencast.com/t/75IXMG6Zria
    Maybe the most important part - When I start experiencing the problem:
    I had same configuration , same everything and everything worked fine.
    I installed SSD disk, reinstalled Windows (same like before), updated my BIOS to UEFI. Installed Photoshop and SetPoint and problem started.
    Posted same request to Logitech, but want to ask you for help too.
    Thanks!

    Hi all,
    I found a solution.
    1. Uninstall your current Setpoint Driver.
    2. Run CCleaner - http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
    3. Download an older version of SetPoint - http://www.oldapps.com/setpoint.php
    (I used SetPoint 6.15 (x64), I tried 6.20, 6.32, 6.50 , but no luck)
    4. Now everything is all right!
    Thanks!
    Can somebody mark this as solved? Thanks!

  • Crosshair mouse tracker on Plot Chart

    Hi All,
    I have implemented a flex plot chart, which works fine (able to plot items to it).  I want to add a cross hair tracking device that will move along with the mouse.  The cross hair will draw a simple horizontal and vertical line crossing at the mouse pointer to the edges of the chart.  I already have registered for the mouse move event (I have a status line that prints the real world values based on x/y position as the mouse moves).  The crosshair implementation I have tried implementing causes the mouse tracking to act very strange...almost, in a lagging type behaviour.  I am using a Graphics object from the plot chart object.  I do a clear each time before I redraw the crosshair (as the mouse moves).  The 'clear' seems to be the core of the lag problem (if I comment out the 'clear', the tracking works fine..but of course the crosshair from the previous mouse position doesnt erase).  I didnt see an 'xor' type of function which is what I have used on like projects before. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    my plot char is  called tlat_chart.
    var G:Graphics = tlat_chart.graphics;
    G.clear();
    G.moveTo(somex, somey);
    G.lineTo(newx, somey);
    etc......

    Take a look at Eli's custom chart annotations here: http://demo.quietlyscheming.com/ChartSampler/app.html

  • Mighty Mouse Track Ball

    Does any one else have issues with the mighty mouse track ball?? My does not work half the time. When it is working it will only work in one direction half of that time.
    Does anyone know of ways to clean it?? Or keep this from happening?

    I've read all the posting about this..in recent months I've been cleaning the track ball 6,7,8,9....times every day. I had planned to buy a wireless Mighty Mouse but not now, it'd be cheaper to sit in front of my Mac bashing my testicles with a mallet for the same effect. Apple, this is an utter design disaster. Like Joachim says, why not a mouse we can open and clean easily, or a larger, more robust track ball mechanism? I'm off to but a mouse by anyone but Apple...

  • Mouse tracking always reset to a specific area point

    Hi,
    My iMac mouse always reset to a specific area of my screen every time I move it.
    I thought that it was the magic mouse tracking that was bugging but it's not : the same problem occurs when I'm using the ScreenSharing app with my computer on sharing mode.
    I tried to restart the computer, empty the PRAM after unplugging the computer but nothing worked..
    Here's the specs of my iMac :
    iMac 27-inch, Late 2012
    3,4 GHz Intel Core i7
    32 Gb of ram
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 Mb

    Someone could help me please?

    Everything is ok finally : I haven't seen that the pen of my graphic tablet was layed down on it..! -_-

  • Mouse scrool wheel events

    Hello!
    I noted that in CVI 9.0 when  using a slide control (hot mode) with the mouse scroll wheel, the only event generated is EVENT_MOUSE_WHEEL_SCROLL.
    But in CVI 2013 the same control generates EVENT_MOUSE_WHEEL_SCROLL, EVENT_VAL_CHANGED and EVENT_COMMIT.
    Is this behavior correct?
    Thanks in advance.
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    The reason those events are sent in CVI 2013 is because operating the mouse wheel really does change the value of the control in CVI 2013, which didn't happen in 9.0. This was implemented as a result of an idea exchange submission and it was documented in the CVI 2013 release notes (search for "mouse wheel").
    The events are not referenced explicitly in the release notes because the key difference was the control value changing. Once that happens, then, as Wolfgang mentioned, the events do need to be sent.

  • IMAC 27 - attached a second monitor - mouse tracking problem

    After attaching a 19 inch lcd via the mini display port and a dvi adapter my mouse tracking has gone bad, not just from one screen to the other even just on the main screen if you move the mouse around it jumps several inches and is very inaccurate. problem goes away when the second mointor is unpluged.
    Can anyone help?
    Stephen

    I'll add to the chorus: I have the 27" iMac, and I get the same mouse jumpiness when I connect my 24" Acer P244W display via the Mini DisplayPort-DVI adapter. Oddly enough, the mouse jumpiness is more pronounced when I use my old wired MS Intellimouse Optical than when I use the included Magic Mouse. I've confirmed with another Mac (and with this Mac minus the second display) that the wired mouse is functioning normally.
    Basically, given slow, constant mouse movement, the cursor will hiccough for about a tenth of a second once every 1.0 seconds, like clockwork. Given more normal use, the cursor will continue to hiccough every second and will also occasionally jump to a completely unrelated location on the screen. (The wired mouse was the worse off here, jumping unpredictably several times a minute.)
    I've unplugged the secondary display for now, but I kinda sorta really need it for Flash and video work. Apple, help!

  • Use of mouse scroll wheel in Forms 6i runtime

    Is there any way to make the mouse scroll wheel work in Forms 6i runtime? Does it work in some areas and not in others? Ultimately, the user would like to use the scroll wheel to navigate through rows in a block instead of dragging the scrollbar. We also have data in a particular row and column that has scroll bar. I'm hearing that in some instances it works, don't know if I believe, not sure if it's workstation dependent. Client workstations are generally XP.

    As I said, I think this is the case but can't confirm it at the moment.

  • Keyboard & Mouse Settings - Mouse Tracking Problem

    Whenever I change the tracking setting for my mighty mouse in system preferences it works fine, but as soon as I close system preferences the tracking setting reverts to the default setting. I tried altering various settings and they all remain as I set them when I close system preferences, but the mouse tracking setting is the only one that will not remain as I set it. I tried changing the setting in Terminal, but it will not work that way either. Then I downloaded MouseZoom thinking that maybe it would work, but it also works fine until you close system preferences. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried repairing permissions?
    If that doesn't work try downloading Onyx
    http://www.titanium.free.fr/pgs2/english/onyx.html
    Run these scripts in the 'Cleaning' Tab
    * User Caches
    * System Caches
    * Core Files
    * Temporary Files
    See if that works for ya.
    Good Luck

  • Airport/freezing/mouse track won't work

    Hey guys, I'm wondering if you could help with my iBook G4. I'm beginning to get seriously annoyed with it. I bought it back in September and it was fine up until recently where it has begun crashing. It tells me that I need to push down the power button to power down. When that happens, I shut it down and then I power it back up again. However, when it does load up, Airport cannot be found/does not exist. When I try to run disk utility, or any other program, it freezes. Not only that but the mouse track will no longer respond.
    I'm bloody well tired of having to restart it over 10 times. I've updated all the necessary software and hardware on here. Maybe this happened when I updated the Airport software. I am running some third party software, but that hardly crashes the laptop. There are times when it won't respond and I just force quit applications.
    I'm really annoyed and I need this laptop to work. I've also found that the build of iBook is loose like it has been altered before being sent to me.
    Any help would be necessary. Thank you.

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    It seems you are encountering a . The cause of a kernel panic could be hardware or software. If your AirPort card is not available after a crash like this, that could be a telling sign. Perhaps your AirPort card itself is loose? A loose connection could cause a kernel panic. You might try taking it out and putting it back in to make sure it's secure.
    If that doesn't help, you might visit Dr. Smoke's great FAQ about troubleshooting kernel panics here.
