I'm going to wait awhile to update. I'm not happy with the changes Moonchild decided to make.

I'm going to be using Vivaldi for a few days and see if I'll switch to that. I'll either use that are move back to FF even though both are slower than PM.

Depends where the data comes from. This showing shares worldwide from March 2021 shows them close but FF slightly ahead

Either way, both browsers will have to get a larger share to overtake Chrome.

Note: I don't use FF, Edge or Chrome on Windows computers.

This year I need to be funny rather than serious!

oops, sorry to confuse you. For some reason I had it in my head your mouse was MS. Could be that I'm helping someone at another forum on Windows 10 and he has a MS mouse.
I used to use Logitech mice but I stopped installing any software for any mouse a long time ago. I either plugged in the wire or the USB dongle and the mouse worked without doing anything special.

At this point, I tend to think you need a new mouse because the wired one you tried worked fine. (You didn't install any drivers nor software; you just plugged it in and it worked.)

You don't want setpoint. That is for Logitech devices and you have a Microsoft mouse.

I also enjoy Rex Stoudt's Nero Wolfe mysteries. I have a few of his books in paperback.

I got the chance to watch season 1 of an Italian tv show featuring Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin living in Italy. Generally I don't watch anything with subtitles but I made an exception for this. Nero Wolfe also grows orchids, as I started doing 8 years ago. All the shows showed lots of gorgeous orchids. You can only imagine that in a book. It was nice to be able to see them. I read the books so long ago and did not remember who the murder was so it was a surprise watching the tv show.

All I can say is that my MS mobile mouse, 2nd screenshot, the middle click button does open a new tab.

I'm using driver v 6.1 and you are using v 10.0 and yet the date is the same sometime in 2006.

So far I only see 3rd party sites to download HID-compliant mouse drivers. I don't trust most 3rd party sites.

Do you have access to a computer that is not running Windows 10? If so, try the mouse on there and see if it works.
Also check the version of HID-compliant mouse driver it is using.

I love mysteries. So anything by Agatha Christie is at the top of my list. I have 32 of her titles in paperback.

My netbook which has a MSmobile mouse attached has 2 entries: one for the ELAN touchpad and a 2nd entry for the mouse.
Here's what the mouse entry looks like.

The synaptics, indicates that winchester73 is on a laptop with a touchpad. I don't remember if we are talking desktop or laptop here.
On my desktop, I get this (keep in mind this is Windows 7 and an ancient wireless logitech mouse)

Please post the link to the download page you are looking at.

Also, if you look through the history of your updates, do you notice any mouse driver update listed on March 6th?
I'm still running Windows 7 and I have refused driver updates for decades - in fact, since I was running Windows 2000.

Ευτυχισμένη δισενταετία !

Wired mouse works. Wireless mouse doesn't.
In that case, I'd put the blame on the mouse rather than Windows 10.

I have not installed any mouse software nor drivers for a long, long time on any computer. I just put in the USB dongle and start using the mouse. The old, old, mouse I'm currently using is from sometime in the 1990's. This is the USB receiver and it is working on a Windows 7 computer.

I'm using an old mouse which doesn't have the feature you want.

I have a workaround until you get this feature working again: hold down the ctrl key when you click a link, This will open in a new tab if your browser is set to open a new tab when you click on a link.
