    Default Slow mouse wheel

    Why does scrolling up & dn hesitate for about half a second or so when I rotate my mouse wheel or grab the scroll bar and drag it? Starts very slow, then after the half sacond operates freely as you would expect. Have the driver installed that came with the mouse (Labtec optical)

    I read this thread heading as a pet shop item - a wheel for a slow mouse.

    Yes the problem shows up on web browser and other apps. Using Win XP pro. Doesn't happen every time, but about 3 times in every 8 or so.

    I have the same problem, every time I start Firefox the first time I use the mouse wheel and then it is ok for the rest of the time, it is as if some slack needs to be taken up, of course that is ridiculous.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Within Firefox, smoothwheel is a good extension concerning mouse scrolling.
