My mouse links to apple.com

    When I press down the scroll wheel button on my mouse the web page redirects to apple.com. What is going on here?

    Just a thought, but your middle mouse button opens your default web browser {Firefox} and the default home page is apple..??

    - what type of mouse? {is it a new one or a cookie cutter dell mouse}
    - is Apple.com your homepage if you just open FF?

    It seems that I have resolved this by clearing out my private data, cookies, history, etc. My default page is google and it is a standard Sony Vaio mouse by the way.

    wow, can't believe apple do that

    Well it looks as though I did not fix the problem by clearing the temporary files. Any suggestions?
