I am pretty new to Linux, I am running Fedora Core 5 on my Dell Inspiron 500m laptop. I am pretty much what you would call a hobbyist, I just recently started using Linux for grits and shins mainly just cuz it's there and I love learning new things, and because philosophically and socially I support the ideals of the open source movement.
So far, I love Fedora Core and I've only had one problem with it that I haven't figured out on my own or found appropriate advice for. Actually, I think it's a problem more with the Firefox 18.104.22.168 browser than with Linux. Sometimes when I move the pointer in an upwards direction with my touchpad mouse, the browser moves back to the last page I was at. Sometimes it goes back several pages by the time I get the pointer up to the forward button to get back to the page I was reading, it's very annoying and it's a problem I was not having while using Firefox with Windows on the same machine.
I think what I want to do is turn off the mouse shortcuts (since I never use any of them anyway and this one is bugging me so much), but how do I do that? Or, is there a better way for me to fix this problem?
Thanks in advance!
