To hate the mouse my Mum bought me?

Long story short my mum nicked our mouse a while back after visiting for an extended period (she took it home with her along with her own one)

We realised this when our other mouse broke and we couldn't find our original. So my mum bought us a new one and had it delivered. All fine exept she got us some fancy gaming mouse, and it has a couple of extra little buttons just above where your thumb goes. When you bump this button it goes back to the previous web page you were looking at. I have now lost SEVERAL long MN posts due to bumping this damn button, or DD kicking my hand making me press it. Just lost a post on the 'getting to know you' thread, right after laboriously copy/pasting all the bloody questions.

So AIBU to get really annoyed with the blasted thing?

I actually thought you were talking about an actual mouse!

Eh I did consider clarifying that point, but am too worried about bumping the button and losing what I'm typing mid-post <<sigh>>

I thought you meant real mouse too :-)

Just a thought - if you go to the mouse settings bit in the control panel of your pc, will it let you disable those functions?

grin I used to have a pet mouse incidentally. It peed everywhere. My dog was much more fun.

Nope nothing under mouse settings that would disable those buttons sad

I thought you meant a pet mouse too! I was thinking it was an odd thing for a mum to buy an adult daughter! grin

It may help if you use Firefox as unlike IE it doesn't lose everything you've typed and haven't yet posted. You might accidentally move onto another webpage but if you press the back button when using FF you find your words still there and waiting to be sent.

YANBU but seriously buy a new one smile

dogs Hmm, might revert to firefox usage.

lonnie I would but as my dad would say 'I'm so broke I can't pay attention'
