    OK. Everyone who has bought this mouse and uses firefox has had this issue, including me

    So here goes. Presuming you have the "Set Point" drivers installed and you have the little Logitec logo in your system tray, do the following.

    1. Right click logitec logo and open "mouse and keyboard settings"
    2. Click button 7 (forward button) under "2.select button".
    3. Under "3.select task" select other.
    4. Click "select function" button.
    5. Scroll to "generic button" and click ok.
    6. Repeat for button 8 (backwards button)

    No worries mate. Don't you just love the Hexus forums.

    Once this mouse is set up it's a pretty good bit of kit. I am finding I can get around 2 weeks of battery life with normal use i.e. gaming and surfing. In fact the other day I got a MSN messenger pop up saying " your Logitec mouse battery is low, please recharge" Low and behold the battery indicator was red.

    How is that!

    The accuracy is impressive and most games recognise all the buttons.

    is that when you set them all to be generic ?? because in games, pressing the buttons to set controls, they just do what they would of done as if i was sitting at the desktop or within a web browser etc...
