I just got this. Everything works except the back and forward buttons in Firefox( they work in IE). I feel like there's probably an easy solution for this, but I can't find it.

pretty easy to get this to work with firefox. Inside the settings program (for the logitech mouse) program...select the back/forward buttons, for function select Other, then select "generic button". Do that for both of them and it should work.

from the time i got it until 2 weeks ago it had a couple of quirks. in excel i couldnt right click. it would instantly open and close. also my scroller would scroll down 2 at a time. i looked everywhere for a remedy for this but nothing

then 2 weeks ago all of a sudden that worked, but when i'm dragging something, like a window, it gets locked in. so i click and drag, then i ahve to let go and click again to set it in its place. very weird

I've had this happen once or twice. It seems like yours does it every time, right? Maybe reinstall the software?

I got this working and set the left/right scroll wheel to change tabs in firefox, which is pretty awesome.

Instructions on how to do it are here in rlowens' post at 2/26/2005 02:37 PM.

To edit the file he talks about you need to be go (in My Computer or any exporer window) to Tools - Folder Options - View and make sure the "Hidden files and folders" option is set to "Show hidden files and folders".

Mine seems to be working fine, so if you just want to copy my edited file here is a link to it. Before you click that link, right click the SetPoint (Logitech's mouse software) icon on the system tray and close it. Right click that link, select save as and navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Logitech\SetPoint\user.xml. Again, you must have hidden folders set to be visible to find this foler. Overwrite the existing file and you're good to go. Run "C:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPoint\KEM.exe" to reload Logitech SetPoint and everything should work.

Omg I love you.

Does the MX1000 have a slower response time than a corded mouse?

Ray,

I got this!



Does yours have the free-spinning wheel? If not, you need to return it and get one of the ones that does!

El D,

I looked at that mouse, and for some reason this one was 179.99, and this one was 49.99. I think they're the same one. Why is there such a huge price difference?
