    Using 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?

    Thanks!!

    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 :/

    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.

    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?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Set mouse 4 to command-left, mouse 5 to command-right, middle button to command-click.
    That should work.
