08-28-2006, 10:15 PM #1GeesuGuestUsing extra mouse buttons (mouse 4 + 5 buttons to go back/forward?)
I'm a new mac user
But in windows when I clicked the side buttons on my mouse it would go back/forward in firefox...
How can I configure this for safari/firefox or the OS?

OK so I did that and it just messed my **** up even more...
The middle mouse wouldn't work at all... So I moved it to trash from applications folder, is that how you "uninstall" it? I think installed the drivers from the logitech site for my mouse, and now when i middle click on firefox it doesn't open in a new tab, it opens in a new window and it opens it twice :/

Opps on swear filter :/ Well I uninstalled it and about everything is fine... Except middlie clicking in firefox no longer opens in a new tab, it opens in a new window
Anyone know how I can change this back?

I've been using Overdrive for years with no problems. Did you set up your applications in it?
BTW: Overdrive has an uninstaller. Just trashing the app doesn't remove the kext from the system, possibly causing problems.Delusions are often functional. A mother’s opinions about her children’s beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth.

Yea I uninstalled it... but middle clicks aren't acting like they used to :/ When I middle click it opens links in a new window, not in a new tab for firefox :/

OK cool... one thing though....
I went to it in system preferences.. and it's set up right
mouse 4 = forward
mouse 5 = backward
middle click = autoscroll
But these buttons do nothing in firefox or safari, anyone know why?

Set mouse 4 to command-left, mouse 5 to command-right, middle button to command-click.
That should work.Delusions are often functional. A mother’s opinions about her children’s beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth.
