My mice (mouses - meeces - mouse x two???) are not working properly. Last week I got a new computer; my first laptop. I had been using a cordless mouse on my other computer and it worked fine. I bought it because it had back buttons and smooth scrolling - to which I've become somewhat addicted. I hate using the built-in mouse on a laptop, so I transferred the cordless mouse to that. The quandary is this: in Internet Explorer, the back buttons don't work, but they do in Firefox. I use FF most of the time, so that isn't too much of a problem, but I can't understand why it won't work in IE. Incidentally, even the "back" arrow on the computer doesn't work well in IE; I have to click it 3-4 times before it responds.
The other quandary is: On mr. kenju's old computer, he had a corded mouse with back buttons and smooth scrolling. It has a round port on it. The round port won't work on my old computer (something happened to it when that computer got fried a year or so ago.) So we have to use a mouse with a USB port on it, or use an adapter. I bought an adapter this week and put it on the mouse and plugged it into the old computer. The back buttons won't work on it either - and I have no idea why.
Anyone have any ideas? Should I just buy another cordless mouse for the old computer (even though mr. kenju doesn't want one?) or is there a way to solve the problem?
