I’m using a Logitech MX-620 wifi mouse. For the last few weeks it has been behaving erratically in Opera 11, usually being oversensitive eg scrolling too fast or the item which one is attempting to click on moves fleetingly out of range. Strangely, if I open Ie8, use the mouse briefly there, it then behaves normally when I return to Opera. I also have a Logitech trackball cable mouse, which is unaffected by these symptoms. I’ve tried moving the wifi dongle to a different USB port, but no difference.
I also notice a very slight instability in the image in MS Word 2007 (and also in IE8) – the page you are working on moves up and down slightly, but this doesn’t seem to affect the operation of the mouse significantly.
I have the latest Logitech driver installed, but it makes absolutely no difference.
Anybody got the same or similar problem or found a solution?

Running under:
Windows XP SP3 + updates
Opera 11.50
AVG Free edition
MS Office 2007
+ a range of other software.

4 July: problem appears to have been resolved now by latest release of Logitech Setpoint software (v.6.30.41). A great relief.
