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.Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

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.Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!
