I can't take credit for this, I read it somewhere else. I am running Mint 13, Cinnamon. If you are using MS Wireless: Boot System Log in Unplug mouse receiver from USB port Plug receiver back in Voila Mouse Wheel scrolling set to reasonable speed.

The extension Chrome Toolbox might be of interest to you: I have not tested it on OSX but it's working for Windows 7 and there should not be compatibility problems there.

I have installed WizMouse which allows scrolling in background/non-focus windows (as per standard Mac behaviour) which should solve the issue - and in my opinion should be default mouse behaviour anyway :) To be clear, it doesn't need to grab the focus and bring the window to the front, just allows you to scroll in the background. Hope that helps.

There is a solution using AutoHotKey posted on google groups: Using Logitech Performance Mouse MX... Downloaded AutoHotKey software In the AutoHotkey.ahk file, added these to do nothing for Cntrl+MouseWheelScrolling ^WheelDown::return ^WheelUp::return

Check out WizMouse: "Makes your mouse wheel behave the way it always should have." Works on 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 * Scrolls windows under the mouse without having to click first * Enables the mouse wheel in applications that don't support mouse wheels

It's possible with AutoHotkey. Try this script for instance: Using Keyboard Numpad as a Mouse. It uses the Numeric Pad to emulate a mouse. When on, NumPad+ and Numpad- emulates the mouse wheel.

I have found a solution. There is apparently a bug in Chrome that cause some incompatibility with mouse wheel extenders such as KatMouse, which I happen to use. Rob Boek has documented a workaround, where changing some settings in KatMouse solves the problem.

Old question, but: while this is not possible in urxvt, I made some changes that will add an option (secondaryWheel) to do exactly that, and make it behave like VTE-based terminals. What this new option does, is pretty simple: when using the mouse wheel, if you’re on secondary screen(*) then no scrolling will occur, and instead 3 “fake” keystrokes will be ...

I found the problem. It has to do with the DPI switch of the mouse. It has been pushed into the casing of the mouse which made it act like that. After freeing the button (and reinserting the batteries) it worked again.

AutoHotKey could do this. MButton::Send {LButton 2}

It doesn't look like its possible within chrome at this point, but you could do it from the mouse side. Depending on the drivers for your mouse, you could set ctrl-scroll as a "shortcut" to actually do nothing - essentially capturing the combination and throwing it away. Some drivers will even let you specify this for only within a certain application, at ...

Dont know where from this problem comes. but we can have an alternative solution to that. Depending on the drivers for your mouse, you could set ctrl-scroll as a "shortcut" to actually do nothing - essentially capturing the combination and throwing it away. Some drivers will even let you specify this for only within a certain application, at which point ...

Instead of a hammer, use a screw driver. Open the keyboard, free the PCB, and snip off the LED with a pair of side-cutters. DONE! :)

Open about:config and set the preference: For Firefox 17+: mousewheel.with_control.delta_multiplier_y = -100 // default 100 For Firefox <=16: mousewheel.withcontrolkey.numlines = -1 // default 1

There are some tools like KatMouse or WizMouse to scroll elements under the mouse pointer without having to focus them first. There are also other tools like AltDrag or Taekwindow which offer this functionality as well but their primary function is to enable Alt + Drag/Resize on Windows. If you want to focus the window under the mouse pointer you may want ...

I don't know of any way to disable scrolling, but you could use Ctrl+0 to return to 100% at any time--no need to refresh the page.

Try volumouse from Nirsoft. provides you a quick and easy way to control the sound volume on your system - simply by rolling the wheel of your wheel mouse. It allows you to define a set of rules for determining when the wheel will be used for changing the sound volume. For example: You can configure Volumouse to use your mouse wheel for volume control ...

In Firefox the zoom function can be disabled via its corresponding setting in about:config. For Chrome: I have found a free little application called AlwaysMouseWheel which does the trick. It is made for another purpose (which I find useful too) but does prevent the zooming in Chrome. For IE: However, that application doesn't disable the zooming. So I am ...

The wheel click and wheel rotation are to completely separate sensors. You've got a broken mouse on your hands.

I'm not sure if this is supported in Windows natively, but a program called KatMouse should do just this: The prime purpose of the KatMouse utility is to enhance the functionality of mice with a scroll wheel, offering 'universal' scrolling: moving the mouse wheel will scroll the window directly beneath the mouse cursor (not the one with the keyboard ...

There are several AutoHotkey scripts for that. This one for instance: Adjust volume with mouse Or this one: change sound volume by mouse wheel

Double Click works on my bluetooth mouse and Windows 7 x64. The Double Click application was designed to be a small program that will turn your middle mouse button into a double click function. It's much smaller than other 3rd party mouse enhancers, as it only does one thing. This will definitely save you getting RSI.

Try Ctrl + '+' and Ctrl + '-'.

Ctrl + wheel to scroll has worked for about ten years or more in many apps including MS Office and several browsers (certainly IE and Firefox, I think). Certainly on XP, possibly older Windows versions too (although wheel mice were much more a speciality item back then). Office 2007 and 2010 suite has a zoom bar in the bottom right corner that you can use ...

I have this happen from time to time, but clicking on another window and then back to Firefox fixes it. I believe it is a focus issue as aking1012 mentions. Here are some settings related to the scroll wheel which you could try. I also read elsewhere that the general.autoScroll setting in about:config should be set to true. Finally, based on this page, ...

System Preferences > Hardware > Mouse > One Finger > Scroll, change "with Inertia" to "without Inertia".

Assuming that the amount of back-scroll is only a single click of the scroll-wheel and not half-way up or down the page, then what you describe is typical of wheel-mice, especially older ones. If you open a wheel-mouse and look at how the scroll-wheel mechanism works, you’ll see that it has a series of bumps inside the wheel and a spring that presses ...

Short answer: If you are using a wireless mouse, try putting in a new battery. Long answer: I had an issue with the scroll wheel in a wireless mouse where when I scrolled in one direction it would frequently scroll in the opposite direction first, then scroll in the desired direction. Putting in a fresh new battery fixed the problem. Usually the mouse ...

What happens when you click the mouse wheel is a setting in Control Panel -> Mouse -> Buttons -> Wheel button Change Wheel Button to Middle Click
