Mouse double backward / forward



  • Hello!
    Disclaimer: I've searched through the community forums, and haven't found anything helpful. The only topic that is similar is this one: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/11785/mouse-backwards-twice and it has a fix of driver reinstall. However it didn't help me in my case, I've tried that.

    The issue: when I am browsing using Vivaldi, when I press mouse forward/backward buttons, it jumps two history records in either direction, instead of one. None of the other browsers and programs in general show this behavior - it was the first time I encounter something like that.

    Technical details:
    OS: Win10x64 Pro, 15063.413
    Mouse: A4Tech F7

    Any help would be really appreciated, I like Vivaldi a lot, it has a lot of useful features (oh my god normal link text selection), but this double-backward/forward jump is like an annoying little chip in otherwise polished experience :)

    @cxshel Could be a dirty or loose switch or contact in your mouse, and Vivaldi having a zero delay on detection of clicks, while other browsers have a delay (like 5 ms) perhaps.



  • Oh, an interesting idea. Is there any way I could change it to test this theory? The mouse is indeed in somewhat rough shape (but serves me good so far)

    @cxshel Under a similar situation, the way I tested it was to try another mouse.



  • @cxshel I've just fixed this. I have a cheap a4tech mouse that comes with software that lets you reassign buttons. So as it turns out, Vivaldi uses mouse's "back" to "rewind" instead of just going back. So what I did is I reassigned my mouse's "back" and "forward" keys to "alt+left" and "alt+right" respectively, which fixed the issue.



  • Happens to me too. My mouse is fine.
    Reassigning the buttons would create a really ridiculous problem since then you could no longer use the backward and forward commands in any other program, which I'm sure most of us need....

    I don't think this is quite the culprit. They're not the first ones it seems with this issue. My mouse is tightly connected & in great condition, as well as clean. It registers my back and forward as double every single time. :( In fact, it has ever since I first installed it. I wish there was a way to assign mouse buttons to actions, like you can do for keyboard shortcuts. I love this feature in things like video players. It would be ridiculously helpful in this context as well.
