Microsoft Intellimouse: strange behavior with fast user switching MacFixit reader Brad reports strange behavior in Mac OS X 10.3.x's "fast-user-switching" functionality when using a Microsoft Intellimouse:
"If you use a Microsoft Intellimouse (and the associated latest driver) in Panther, you may notice a weird issue. If you are the only one logged in, and you use the mouse and its forward and back buttons, everything works fine. However, if you fast user-switch to another account while leaving Safari open on the original account... and then open Safari again on the newly switched-to account, the forward and back buttons don't move you back or forward one page. They move you back and forward two pages. Give it a try. I use a 17-inch iMac Flat Panel PC2100 1GHz with Panther 10.3.4 and Intellimouse 5.0."
