Sticky Mouse

Hi, sometimes when I'm using a browser such as Firefox, the mouse sticks, and instead of the cursor moving across the screen, it will scroll in the direction the mouse is moving.  This is hard to explain, but the mouse acts as if the button has been depressed, instead of being able to move the mouse across the screen, the screen slides.  I'm using OSX.

RE: Sticky Mouse

If you hold down your "Control" button and scroll using the Wheel on your mouse.

It will zoom in and move around... you have to zoom out to fix it (control+scroll)

It's a feature for people with bad eye sight


RE: Sticky Mouse

What mouse are you using, and how is it connected to your Mac?

If it's a non-Apple mouse, are you using the latest drivers?
