If I open the Bugzilla query page, the mouse scroll wheel doesn't scroll it, even if I explicitly focus on the page itself and hold the mouse outside any controls. Instead, it does weird text highlighting of the page's non-editable text (outside any controls) and/or pops up context menus in the window's upper left corner, regardless of where the mouse is. Similar problems afflict the My Netscape page.
Dupe of 33732?
Possibly; however, 33732 refers to a similar problem on PC's and has Windows-specific comments. The symptoms on the Mac are different and weirder, including mysterious selection of background text without ever clicking the mouse.
I'm having a problem where the scroll wheel will stop working in OS X. It may be this bug, but I'm not sure since it doesn't necessarily happen on pages with form elements (like bug 33732 does). I've even seen it happen on pages that are displaying text documents. The symptom is that the mouse wheel stops scrolling. The only thing I've found that makes it work again is selecting *in the upward direction*. That usually causes the wheel to begin functioning again. Is this a different bug?

Nav Triage: marking nsbeta1-, need evidence of this happening on normal users sites before working on this.
Keywords: nsbeta1 → nsbeta1-
Well, I see this on every "normal users site", any web page with forms or not. See my comments in bug 121574 for details. The trick in comment 3 does not work for me. Please tell if I can help with more information or simple debugging.
Re: comment 5. This bug happens on popular sites as well. For example, this bug occurs on my Charles Schwab account view and trading pages (can't give the URL -- you need to have an account with Schwab with some history in it to see this). Requesting re-triage.

this is due to the existing native scrollbar in the form widgets conflicting with the one that we use for scrollwheel. there's not much we can do about this, especially not at this point but should magically go away when we use xbl form controls. i'd future it, but that would lead someone to the idea that some work will at some point be done to fix it, which there won't because it works on osx. WONTFIX.

With a Microsoft Intellimouse Optical (and driver for macos9) it seems to work fine, but with the Kensington mouse (and newest driver) the same old problem is there. This is Mozilla build 2002100603. The Kensington mouse works fine with all other applications.
