I know this is a stupid question but id still like it solved

K so.. when using firefox I have a problem scrolling the pages up and down.

My mouse does not have a mouse wheel so I have to go to the scroll bar to do this... In windows all i had to do was to take my mouse to the absolute right and the scroll bar would get selected.. but in linux if i take my mouse to the absolute right, the mouse goes beyond the scroll bar and thus I have to move it a little bit to the left to select it.

like i have to search for the scroll bar everytime so to speak.. which is kinda annoying...

do i make any sense? anyone know what im talking about? am i the only one with this problem? or am i the only guy with a mouse having no scroll wheel :)

the_punisher,

Here is another suggestion for you. In Firefox, look under edit - preferences - advanced tab - and select "use cursor keys to navigate in web pages."

You can then use the up/down arrow keys. Personally, I think it is much easier if you don't have a mouse wheel.
