Mouse scroll wheel at top does webpage back/ bottom forward

Post by sacman08 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 3:20 pm

I have a default install of Ghost BSD 10.3 R p11 and I am using a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse combo. I am using the default installed version of firefox and I have noticed some issues with the mouse scroll wheel when web surfing. Whenever I scroll to the top of a webpage it will send me back through websites I have previously visited, also when I scroll to the bottom it will send me forward through pages I have already visited. I am just curious if this is suppose to be a feature and if so how do I turn it off because I can't find a setting in either the mouse or firefox settings to do this. Has anyone else experienced this problem (if it's not a feature)?

The default behavior of the scroll wheel is to scroll up/down the current page, that said I've imported my settings from a previous firefox install, so I'm unsure.

Have you tried a more traditional mouse, just for test ?

Well I consider this a traditional mouse, USB and wireless by Logitech. Do you mean a PS/2? No I don't have a PS/2 port to try or even a mouse. Still based on the very limited responses, I am going to assume that no one else has experienced this or the people who have consider it a good feature and don't want it changed. Thanks anyway.
