Did you try resetting the mouse options in control panel? That's where the wheel scrolling speed and jump to default options are set.

Yes, I did.

Also, Alt+S used to submit a reply to a thread. Now it brings up a navigation window.

I use Firefox as well - I like the ease of navigation and the tabs that appear at the top of the window. I have not been able to figure out, though, why it is when I post a link to another page in an email, the link is not live, but must be cut and pasted. I guess I'll meander over to the Firefox forum and try to figure it out...............thanks for the tip.

Wish I knew what to do. I've got both Opera and Firefox, as well as IE (never use) and Netscape (again, never use it now). I also noticed the Firefox doesn't scroll as fast, but then, after we got this funky mouse, nothing scrolls exactly the way I'd like it to. If FF isn't scrolling fast enough for me, I just hit the scroll button the right side of the window. There's only three things I use FF for anyway, as Opera is my default browser, but two websites I go to won't support Opera, and the third likes to make Opera reload webpages if I even attempt to scroll down before the page loads completely.

Is GB going someplace?

I am looking for the answer. I recall that firefox may have an ini file that sets lots of options that are not obvious.

In the line at the top where you put the address that you want to go to type "aboutconfig" all lower case, no spaces. I don't have time to look at it at the moment, but, ther seems to be a lot there.

Gotta catch a train.

I am a long time user of FF, but I don't recall ever having to do those set ups. I would start by uninstalling your add ons one at a time and see if any are the cause. If that doesn't work you may have a bad install and may have to re-install. When I got FF, and all the recent upgrades it work correctly from the go. Good luck.

Lefty, I haven't installed any add-ons. I wanted to get used to the basics first.

I hope when you do you install the mouse gestures because they are the most wonderful thing every invented. When DH gets home I'll set him to work on your question. He's really good at figuring that sort of thing out.

Can you get a screen shot of the problem? (print screen, then paste it into windows paint) then post it so we can tell what the problem is with a little description.

His problems are motion problems. They are not something you can take a screen shot of.
