What build is this on?
Summary: Wheel mouse is not working → Wheel mouse is not working / A4Tech dual wheel mouse
Reporter replied by email: build was M13.
This is probably the same issue that's affecting some Logitech mice. Does this mouse have a program that runs in the background (similar to logitech's em_exec), and if so, does killing that program help at all?

Assigning to M15 to match Logitech bug.
Target Milestone: M15
Same problem here, with an "Connection" (=IntelliMouse compatible) wheel mouse. build 03/05 Yes, it has a seperate programm running in WIn95 in the background to enable the wheel. No it doesn't help to close that program (execpt for disabling the wheel in whole Win)

New observation: The mouse wheel works! But *only* in select objects, where you can scroll the entries. It won't even work in e.g. textareas. It will stop working there when I close the mouse driver program. Does anybody else see this with IntelliMouse (compatible) mice? build 03/05 (and M14), don't know how long that has been working this way.
There are currently problems with mousewheel scrolling (on all platforms) when the pointer is over a text area. This will need some special handling. It likely works in select areas because it's locating the native scrollbar there. This will go away soon. But, I have some code that might help the situation that I will be checking in after the beta branch is created.
Beginning with the 03-16-2000 M15 builds, you can do the following to generate mousewheel debugging information (on Windows): set NSPR_LOG_MODULES=MOUSEWHEEL:5 mozilla > mozilla.log Mousewheel debugging information will have this format: 1024[80589f0]: (message) Note that the numbers may differ. If you are having the problems described in this bug, and see any of these messages in the generated mozilla.log, please attach the log to this bug report. If you don't see these messages, the problem is the app not getting the event in the first place (which is what I suspect, but I want to be sure).
For what it's worth, I checked in some code today to let mozilla recognize MSH_MOUSEWHEEL messages that are apparently generated by some mouse drivers on Win95. Might make scrolling work in some cases where it did not before. This will show up with the next nightly builds, which will be 3-20, I think.
You might want to look at comments I just added to bug 20618 about how to get even more debugging output.

email@example.com- can you try this again in a recent nightly (04-12-2000-M16 or later)? I checked in a change that might affect this, but I'm not sure.
it's working correctly now i've got latest (from few hours) m16 build with beta a4tech drivers for win2k firstname.lastname@example.org
Marking fixed per reporter comment.

its not working again with final a4tech drivers (v 7.0) for win2k
If you reinstall the beta drivers, does it work?
the problem is in a4tech software supporting double-click etc. with old one (software - not driver) mozilla is working correctly (but i've got problems with this exe) with new one it's not working
OS: Windows NT → Windows 2000
Wait, so what is not working? The software that translates the middle button to double-click, or the wheel scrolling itself?
With new software wheels in mozilla are not working, but it's working in all other applications. Old one (beta) is working with all applications (including mozilla). The problem is (as always) in this software, becouse mozilla is working correctly with old software and with no software.
Hm, I'm not sure what all I can do here. Are there any configuration options in this software that might be applicable?
i think this problem is not in mouse software but in mozilla becouse this software is working correctly with all windows application (excluding mozilla)
Moving all my bugs to this email.

M16 has been out for a while now, these bugs target milestones need to be updated.
As I noted in 22794, I think it might be good to mark this a dup of 20618 and use that one as a meta-bug to track win32 mousewheel nonfunctionality problems. The issues are probably the same across all of these bugs. Anyone object or have evidence that this is a separate bug?
