hey guys, I'm using Logitech MX 510 on Mac OS 10.4.5.. I remember using the same mice on Windows XP Pro and Forward/back(for webpage browsing) buttons worked flawlessly without any drivers.. But they seem to be dormant in Mac OS .. Do i need special Logitech drivers to run them?

please help.

i use the mx310 and have the buttons assigned just fine. it took a little tweaking though. for the forward and back buttons for browsing you want to assign keystrokes.....
this may be weird to explain and if you need help i can just take a screen shot of how i have it set up on my logitech control screen

for browsing back a page assign the keystroke of the apple button (to the left of the space bar) and the [ key

lemme know if that made any sense. :dummy:


my apple is bling *tisk tisk, you shouldn't have any bling.. just nice things*
