Web Browser scrolling

Reposting from here https://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=940 in case this wasn't seen.

I've installed GBD into a virtualbox machine. Everything works well except that the mouse scrolling activates the back or forward buttons in every browser I've tried. The previous answer suggested to remove moused from rc.conf but it does exist in my file.I would like to fix this before giving up on this distro.

I had the same issue on virtualbox too. But on metal never. It seems there is a conflict between virtualbox and GhostBSD.

Basically it is moused the cause of the problem it also happens on FreeBSD with moused service. There is a hack for that "xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 0 0 0' &" that can be set in Startup Applications.
