Middle Mouse Click No Longer Opens Or Closes New Tabs In Ie Or Firefox

Sep 29, 2010

All of a sudden I can no longer open or close new tabs using the middle mouse click (clicking the scroll wheel) it doesn work in ie or in firefox. Also seems like it doesn't work on the desktop or any other application. I have'nt installed new updates or new programs, I don't have any "mouse software" like intellipoint. This affects both my wireless keyboard with built in trackball and a serperate wireless scrollmouse. The only think I can think of is that a few days ago I changed the the speed of my cursor.. of course this shouldn't have affected anything else.... but it is really annoying as I mostly use my computer for web browsing and always open links in new tabs..

Browser Opens Never-ending Chain Of Tabs When Click On Send Mail To

Jan 11, 2012

New to Windows 7 user. When I'm on a page that has a response button or active web mail address, if I click on the button, my browser starts opening tabs one after another at a very high velocity. Hundreds of them, perhaps thousands if I didn't intervene, the tabs that DEVOURED CLEVELAND! This happens on IE8, Firefox9, so I'm assuming any browser. My computer is new and I'm new to Windows 7 (64bit?) & no I don't have my finger lounging on the keyboard. The only way to stop the process is to hold down the pause/break key. But only while you're holding it down. If you let up it goes right on propagating. So exiting the web page is the only method to stop it.

Middle Click Mouse Function Stopped Working

Oct 6, 2011

I my middle click function has stopped working on my mouse, at first I assumed it was a Chrome update and that I could no longer use it to "Open link in new tab" however it seems that it now does absolutely nothing and I am unable to reassign it. I used CAD software (Solidworks) that requires the middle mouse button for me to be able to pivot my view about the pointer on the screen (also a few PC games I play would be much smoother if I could do this).I have all the latest drivers and firmware installed.I did find this thread that I thought might help me; Middle Mouse Button , however the screen shot at the bottom shows the Mouse Options on the Control Panel having a lot more option than it does for me, the only options I have are switching the left and right mouse buttons, double-click speed adjustment and ClickLock.The buttons assignment window that I get using the Razer software gives no more options other than to assign the forwards and backwards buttons ("Windows Button 4" and "Windows Button 5").

COM Surrogate Opens And Closes?

Oct 18, 2012

I have a different problem with COM Surrogate. I noticed something wasn't right when I got random freeze-ups playing audiosurf which is sensitive to CPU usage. I opened task manager and saw about every 15 seconds, there is a spike in the CPU usage. I checked the processes and saw dllhost.exe (COM Surrogate) is opening up and closing in just a few seconds, and repeats this about every 15 seconds which is eating my CPU. I do NOT get any error messages anywhere. I can view photos just fine. HOWEVER, I do see that any new photos' or videos' thumbnails are not updating. Any videos and photos I had before this problem have thumbnails, but not any new ones I create. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

Mouse Opens A Window, However Cannot Click Inside The Window

Aug 22, 2012

I am running into an issue where I can open a window/program with my mouse however once the window is open I cannot click inside of it. The window becomes inactive. I also have noticed I cannot right click on my desktop to bring up the properties. I can right click on the window in the task bar to close it but not in the window. Since this is happening I am limited to command prompt. I ran sfc /scannow with no errors. I tried with 3 different mice. I booted the computer into safe mode with command prompt and brought up the device manager to show devices not in use, and when the device manager window opened I could click inside it! since I could use the window I uninstalled all mouse drivers, and reinstalled my microsoft wireless usb mouse driver.. while in this safe mode I changed my mouse properties to system default as I read somewhere that can reset things. Next I booted the computer in safe mode (without command prompt) and still the same thing. I was trying to do a restore point as well however my Kaspersky antivirus 2012 is preventing that as i cannot find a way to kill the program through command prompt.

Internet Explorer Opens For Split Second Then Closes

Jan 24, 2011

I have a laptop with Windows 7 64 bit. The first few days I had it, Internet Explorer worked fine. Then it malfunctioned. When you double click the IE shortcut it would open for a split second then close. When you went to the Start menu, Programs, it would do the same. I downloaded and installed IE 8 64 bit from Microsoft's website. When I double click the IE 8 64 bit shortcut it opens fine! The problem is, I can't set IE 8 64 as my default browser. I get a Windows error message that says you cannot set IE 8 64 as your default browser. So I can open IE 8 64 manually but any link I click tries to open IE 8 (32 bit presumably) which still opens then immediately closes.

It went too fast, I couldn't read what it had said on the prompt.

Firefox 3.5 Switching Tabs

Jul 10, 2009

In previous versions, you could give focus to a single tab (like clicking on it) and then use the arrow keys to toggle between tabs.

I can't do that in 3.5, did they take that out or did they just change the way it's done?

Taskbar Tabs For Many Firefox Windows 7 Shift

Feb 23, 2012

I have about a dozen Firefox tabs open on my taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Win7 64bit on Dell E6510. But some of them will shift position on the taskbar on their own. Happens all the time, and it's very aggravating because I'm needing to be able to hit them quickly and often and need to have them stay in the expected position. Can't afford the time to hunt around for them. For example [URL]will often move itself to the far right. Even BigCharts.com is doing this now. None of my searches on the web can answer how to stop this. It's easy to grab/drag a tab window for another application around on the taskbar, but within the single application of Firefox this doesn't work. Why/how are these windows shifting around? This never happens on my other laptop, a WinXP SP3 machine.

Firefox Tabs Show Up As Individual Windows 7 On Toolbar?

Dec 26, 2011

When i pass over the icon of firefox on my toolbar at the bottom of the screen( unsure of its real name but the bar with the time and start icon) each and every tab shows up separately. just today i repartitioned my hardrive, and before the reinstall it only showed whatever windows were open, no matter how many tabs were in each.If there is any way i can return it to the old state that would be fantastical, i find it much easier to keep track of my browser and the windows i have open

Firefox - How To Make Previously Closed Tabs To Open Again After Booting

Jul 12, 2012

Until a few months ago, when I closed firefox, all tabs at once, or shut my pc down with the tabs open and later booted the pc and opened firefox, the tabs that were previously open would open again. Some time ago a firefox update stopped the previous tabs from opening. I have some forums that I read and would like for them to open as before. How to make them open automatically as before or did firefox do away with that option?

BSOD Multiple Firefox Tabs Error Stop 0x0000007A

Jan 22, 2012

My laptop was left on yesterday with numerous firefox tabs open (x20) for various websites, although no one was using the computer and this is a regular occurrence without fault until yesterday. I'd gone out fishing and noticed the BSOD and took this photo of the screen showing the full error as "stop 0x0000007A (0xc0487688, 0x3e5898c0, 0x96ed7e3e)"

I had altered the BSOD settings in the past to stop the laptop from restarting in order to have time to take note of the error codes in case of future failures, although I hadn't had any BSOD for over a year. The previous BSOD's were 0x000000d1 (netwLv32.sys) and 0x0000007e (Volsnap.sys), unlike those BSOD's, the one shown in the photo doesn't have a description other than the error code.

I had turned off the laptop while in BSOD, having completed dumping physical memory; subquent restarts were only reaching here followed promptly by a black screen with the flashing white underscore, which I could escape by alt+Ctrl+delete. At one point the laptop did load and somehow I was able to access System recovery options and selected startup repair, which I viewed the log prior to restarting and everything completed successfully and although I did restart the computer, I haven't been able to proceed further than the initial loading window or the defaulting black screen that follows.

I've tried running the BIOS setup utility, with the hard disk self test diagnostics, though this failed each time.

Not able to provide any debug logs until I can proceed further. Have the windows 7 back up DVD disc, but not sure if my DVD drive is playing up, as when I push ESC and enter into the boot menu selecting the Atapi cd/DVD rom drive, it only goes to the prior mentioned black screen and remains there long after 5 mins. The disc drive is heard to be working if the disc is within, though nothing results on the screen. I had recalled some difficulty prior to this BSOD with the CD/DVD rom, having decided it was either only a driver or possibly registry error or required itunes reinstall, as afterwards having successfully read a music cd with itunes.

I don't think I have the windows recovery discs or system restore discs, as I tried some I thought were these, but nothing occurred and I figure they must be from when I tested the windows 7 beta or W7RC or such. So only have the legit Windows 7 back up disc (32 & 64 bits), which I was running 32 bit. Only twice has it shown up "Press any key to boot from disc", although there was no response and it doesn't always reach this prompt.

Middle Click Changed Behavior After Update?

Nov 1, 2009

I don't know if anyone else has noticed,but I believe the middle-click (wheel click) has changed behavior on the taskbar. When I used to middle-click on an icon (e.g. Internet Explorer) that's pinned on the taskbar, it used to pop up a new window.

Now whenever I do this, it brings me the alt-tab window selection. I suspect it happened after some update.

OpenOffice No Longer Opens In Windows 7?

Jul 20, 2012

Trying to open any of the OO applications results in an image of a circle spinning appears momentarily (0 to 1 second) but the program does not start. This happens when clicking on a link on the desktop or Start Menu as well as double-clicking an application file the Program Files (x86) directory or double-clicking on associated files (.doc, .odt, ...). I have uninstalled and reinstalled versions 3.3 and 3.4 several times. The suite's quickstarter.exe is in my Startup folder and appears in MSCONFIG as a Startup item but is not running in Task Manager upon start up.When I boot into Safe Mode, the OO applications run perfectly. I have run MS Security Essentials scans in regular and Safe Mode as well as Comodo Anti-Virus scans.Googling and posting on an OpenOffice forum indicated several things to try, none of which panned out:I installed Java 6.33 32-bit version.DocuShare is not running or installed.I turned off Skype.I turned off all firewalls and anti-malware programs and services.I stopped and disabled non-critical services (only 26 processes were running in Task Manager).I have uninstalled OO, rebooted, reinstalled, rebooted after each of these attempts with the same results.

When I only had 26 processes running, opening an OO program caused the dllhost process to appear in Task Manager for several seconds. I have not noticed that when all services are activated. In fact, I specifically noticed it not happening.

Firefox Opens Some Sites With Text Only?

Apr 29, 2012

So for example when opening website LoL Pro - Pro League Of Legends Guides and Videos it looks like this I have had the same problem with some other sites. Sometimes it looks like that, sometimes it works correctly. I dont know if this has anything to do with this, but i runned some kind of computer cleaning program and after that the website started looking like that. But I had the same problem with an other website named solomid.net, but now it works normally.EDIT: Ok when I opened website www.owned.tv it says Quote: Error: the xajax Javascript component could not be included. Perhaps the URL is incorrect

When Double Click A Folder It ONLY Opens In A New Window

Jan 14, 2012

Tried lots of things, using regedit, going into the folders features my "Folder Options" ARE set to "Open each folder in same window"

my windows 7 ultimate 64bit refuses to do this though... tried lots of things... also internet explorer not opening just, turned IE off waiting to reboot, may be related idk. THIS is a really big annoyance... just 2 days ago when I double clicked a folder in explorer.exe it would open in SAME window

tried system restore, tried Cmd prompt thing... what may have happened is that I recently was uninstalling things... umm made sure this was a software thing ... defaulted my laptop's touchpad used other mouses and still same result.
