Windows 7: Mouse back and forward buttons step two pages instead of one

Mouse back and forward buttons step two pages instead of one

Logitech Performance Mouse MX, extra buttons for previous / next page. Since yesterday evening these buttons are useless, instead of bringing me to next or previous page they both cause browser to jump two pages.

An example: I open Seven Forums home page, click News, click first thread in News. After reading it I press back button which should bring me back to News main page but instead browser jumps two pages back to SF home page. Same action when Forward / Next button is pressed, browser jumps two pages forward.

All browsers, all sites. Logitech Setpoint drivers uninstalled and reinstalled, laptop rebooted. Issue remains.

Any ideas welcome.

Sounds like one of those really annoying things

You don't have sensitivity options on that mouse do you, i had an issue with a mouse in the past where by the sensitivity was set that high that when clicking once would register about 2-3 clicks.

I honestly don't know... Just a thought

Scroll sensitivity can be set, how many rows / pixels the mouse wheel causes page to move up or down, but no such setting for back / forward buttons.

The only thing I can think of. The contacts in the mouse are sticking.

No. That was the first thing I checked. Buttons have really good"feel", I can clearly feel and notice they function properly.

I don't know of anything in Windows 7 that can cause that problem. Maybe a restore point could help here. Have you check the Logitech site or Forum for problems like your having. I'm running out of ideas.
