    Hello. I have a dell 600m laptop and use a Targus Optical Notebook Mouse PAUM004. However, its been acting weird. For example, i use firefox, and when i have several tabs open and click on one of them to close, it closes all of the tabs, or i would have to click it several times to click one tab. When i try to highlight something, on the first click it will highlight a part of a word, the whole thing or the entire sentence. its driving me nuts. I tried to clean the optical sensor thing with a q-tip and saliene solution but it didnt do anything. please help.

    Try clicking the scroll wheel while the cursor is hovering over the tab.
