After adding an acceleration scroll model to the Windows builds of Firefox (Bug 462809) a lot of users started to report that they were experiencing double acceleration, since their mouse driver was already providing its own acceleration model.  In an effort to detect if an acceleration model is already in place (bug 509651), we need to look at the events being reported by a wide variety of mice (and mouse drivers) currently on the market.

I'll be putting together a list of mice I think we should start out with testing, along with links to CDW for IT to purchase them.

Currently I already have these:

Microsoft Intellimouse optical
Microsoft wheel mouse optical
Microsoft Bluetooth notebook mouse 5000
Logitech M-UAE96
Apple mightmouse

After we have figured out everything we need to know about mouse events on Windows to resolve bug 509651 we should probably turn the inventory over to QA in case anyone else needs access to a variety of mice.
Here is a list of popular mice currently on the market, with the mice above and similar mice filtered out (while the links are from CDW, I'm basing this on the sales rank at amazon.com)

Same inventory as a spreadsheet with type and rank: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tf7-Ncrbk2gr6uZ4Y2gFu6g&output=html

Note that I updated the spreadsheet to mark a few more mice that we have access to around the office:

Everything not marked as a "have" on the spreadsheet has been placed on order.
