To speed up mouse scrolling speed in Firefox in Linux VirtualBox

Q: To speed up mouse scrolling speed in Firefox in Linux VirtualBox

I was told by somebody here with VIP badges that I should not post here how to make Firefox run more smoothly in a Virtual Machine in Linux. It should be in a Linux forum. So I moved it there.

Preferred Solution: To speed up mouse scrolling speed in Firefox in Linux VirtualBox

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a very strange and annoying problem. I bought a new mouse A4tech Bloody V7, I installed the software and everything seemed to be working fine. Then my PC went into the sleep mode and when I woke it up I realised that the mouse scroll doesn't work. I restarted the PC and it was ok again.. I thought it was a one time bug but then I found out that everytime the PC goes into the sleep mode (often) the mouse stops scrolling.
Now, the mouse software has some very specific features. There are 2 cores that you can switch between and each of them gives the mouse some new features. (such as specific button features, etc.). When the mouse stops working and I open the software and change the core (from 1 to 2, or the other way round) the cores "reset" and the mouse starts working again. So you might think that the software is bad. Well, it isn't.
I deleted the software to see if the issue still persists and it does. Regardless of the SW being installed or not the mouse gets bugged after the PC goes into the sleep mode. So I tried to test it on my notebook to see if the mouse if faulty. But it works perfectly fine on my ntb. With the SW not being installed on my ntb the mouse works, even after sleep mode. With the software installed it works too. But as soon as I plug it to my PC it gets crappy. But this would still be sufferable, but now (since a few days back) whenever I boot the PC after it has been turned off, the mouse DPI settings are set to the minimum, which ... Read more

A:Mouse problems - not scrolling, resetting speed

Bump .. any suggestions?

Hi All!
I have a problem with the scrolling speed of my mouse. It's a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0A model 1008. It seems to scroll more than the top 3 lines at a time, although the setting is at 1 line.
Another thing is that when I scroll down, the page seems to return to a previous position, so it momentarily scrolls back a bit.
Any ideas?
Looking forward to your enlightenment.

I have an eee pc with xp on it. I usually like using firefox but for some reason the touch pad (two finger scrolling) is horrible with it. The page barely moves at all. I tried opera and while the page scrolls, it goes too fast. Simply twitching my fingers a little can cause a whole page to go by (compounded by the eee pc's small vertical screen size).

I was wondering if there is a solution to either of these problems. Ive tried fiddling with the touchpad settings (elantech touchpad drivers) but they really dont help. Scrolling regular windows for file browsing is excellent so I was wondering if there's a setting in either of the browsers for this. I wont use IE btw.

My laptop is P70. I noticed the mosue wheel scrolling speed is really slow so I changed the "Choose how many lines to scroll each time" in control panel to 6. However, after I reboot my laptop, the speed is always reset to 1. Here are some more specific symptoms: 1. Immediately after the startup, the speed is 6, but after maybe 1-2 mininutes, the speed is reset to 1.2. After reset to 1, if I use the touch pad to zoom in or zoom out, the speed can return to 6 for several minutes and then go back to 1 again.3. After the speed is reset to 1, the register key is still 6: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] "WheelScrollLines"="6", which indicates something must override this key.4. No matter the mouse is plugged into the USB port or not, the speed will always be reset to 1. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

I moved into a city that has 1gbps fiber and I got it. I set my computer up to run Ubuntu or Windows 7 in the Ubuntu OS I have full speed, like 980mbps but in Windows I can only get around 370mbps, they informed me that it was a know issue which is why they carry around laptops with Ubuntu instead of windows to troubleshoot there system. Anyone have any clue on this, I cant even imagine where to start looking for the setting or fix. Thanks

I have a question regarding Mozilla Firefox 2. I notice when I click on the Firefox icon (whether in my Quick Launch Bar, my Start Menu Shortcuts listing, or on the desktop), it can take up to 15 to 20 seconds for the application to open. Now, I have heard that installed extensions can slow it down which makes sense. I have installed 35 of them as add-ons. However, I have disabled (NOTE: NOT un-installed) all, but 11 to still run. The ones running are: Adblock Filterset. G Updater, Adblock Plus, Adblock Plus: Element Hiding Helper, Ask Toolbar for Firefox, Forecastfox Enhanced, Locator, Mouse Gestures, Speed Dial, Split Browser, Test size toolbar, and WOT. I find these still useful. Now, when I say Firefox is slow to load, I do not mean the loading of the web sites, I mean the loading of the Firefox 2 application to come up on the desktop. I have seen a lot information on the web about increasing the speed of loading of web sites by going into about:config & about:cache and changing things like the pipelining and adding a new integer, etc. ...and even changing the memory cache size to a bigger size.

A:Need Solution to Speed Up Firefox 2 Application for Loading, NOT URL Speed Up.

Hi, welcome to TSF

Firefox has always been slow to open compared to IE, because IE is so deeply integrated into the Windows operating system and has most of its components loaded when you boot into Windows.

The about:config tweaks you mention affect various aspects of how Firefox loads pages, but as far as I'm aware they can't improve the program's loading time.

Try creating a new profile with no addons or themes, then reboot the computer and load Firefox with this new profile to see how its start time compares to your normal profile with all its extras.

Perhaps the "wheel" tab of Control Panel/Mouse properties will help since you can change the number of lines per notch of the scroll wheel.

Two-button Mouse with scrolling wheel ... name's wore off Mouse, and don't have box, but it is a PS/2 compatible-type that plugs into the USB port.

The scrolling, no matter what program I use, or on the net, has became slow and jerky -- I can spin the wheel 5 or 6 times (often more) and the text will move up or down 1 or 2 lines.

Anyway, does W98SE have a setting of some type that handles wheel mouse speed, or is the Mouse just getting ready to quit? Its about 2 years old.

Just received the XPS 13 9360 in the mail today. I am trying to figure out how to speed up the scrolling. I've been using a MacBook pro since 2011 and I am used to being able to scroll to the end of a page with one swipe. On this computer, I'll need wrist surgery after a month.
Everyone with other manufacturers seem to have ways of increasing the speed by opening up the software specific to the installed hardware, but Dell doesn't seem to have that. And the only scroll speed option that I can find in the mouse options is for a mouse, not a touchpad.
I really want this laptop to work. Please help me.

So I've just picked up my brand new Dell XPS 13 (9343) laptop today and everything is working perfectly. The only issue that I have with it at the moment is the touchpad scroll speed as I feel it is too slow for my liking.

Is there a way to increase the scroll speed?

Hi guys

There is one thing that has annoyed me for a long time in XP.
Lets say I have a folder with 277 files and I want to remove the first 95 files. My window shows only 57 files.I start by marking the files with left or right mouse button. Everything is ok until I come to the edge of the window. Suddenly the scrolling speed to mark the files is very high. This make it almost impossible to mark only the files I want to remove. Whats normaly happens is that I suddenly end up with over 150 files marked before I manage to stop the scrolling.

I hope there is a solution to this annoying problem. I will be gratefull for any help.

I push my system hard, and have the hardware to handle it (for example, 24G memory.)

From time to time, I'll have an enormous amount of windows open. Right now, I have about 100 chrome windows open, with multiple tabs on each.

Once there are more windows open than Windows can display vertically on my 1050px height monitor, it shows an up arrow at the top of the list it can display, and a bottom arrow at the bottom of the list it can display.

If I hover over either of these arrows, it scrolls at about 3-4 windows per second, which can take forever to scroll to the bottom of the list (which is where the most recently opened windows appear.)

Besides learning how to close windows when I'm done with them, rather than on an every couple days basis, how can I switch more efficiently?

Sometimes ALT+TAB is a good alternative, and sometimes it isn't.

Can I decrease the delay between scroll, so the window would scroll faster? I have a 1680x1050 monitor, not a 560x1050 monitor -- can I have Windows display three columns of lists?

A:Speed up scrolling on Windows taskbar's open window titles

Excellent question, for which I too would love to find an answer.

Also, changing or diminishing the height or space occupied by each open window/line that is stacked on top of or out of the taskbar would be fantastic, along with changing the font perhaps.

Hi All,Since a few days I am using T480 with Kubuntu 18.04.When I use the laptop for web browsing and text edition (light use which should not consume too much resources), the CPU's temperature is always around 50 deg C, with the fan speed of around 3000 RPM (the average CPU usage is 6%). The MX150 GPU is disabled with NVIDIA X Server Settings. If the GPU is on, the temperature and fans speed is more or less the same. Has anyone experienced similar CPU's temperatures regardless if it is windows or linux? Are such temperatures normal? The housing is pretty warm all the time.The ambient temperature is around 24 deg C. Best regards,Lendzian

I had a few friends which saw my Arch Linux install and were amazed in trying.

2 days later, one of them asked me how come when I install and compile from AUR the speed is faster than his.

Since it was difficult to explain, I pointed him to a Youtube video of a very good Youtuber who sadly passed away recently.

Arch is no where near beginner friendly than one might think, even if you refer to Manjaro.

But those who wish to use, here is a nice tutorial to speed up AUR compile.

To note: AUR = Arch User Repository (community based)

When comparing speeds, remember to divide your speedtest result by 8. 0.89 mbps is around 101KBps.

Download speeds depend on many factors, inclduing the modem/router, traffic through your ISP at the time, and the type of download, just to name a couple.

What type of download is it? Are they torrents? These can often be slow.

Are downloads slow from everywhere?

You mentioned video buffering; Do you have downloads going at the same time that you are trying to view a video? Are there other people sharing your connection (eg other family members)?

You didn't say if you had tried rebooting the router/modem, or if you had been in contact with your ISP. These would be among the first things to try.

As you haven't stated what you have tried, I'm going to assume none of the following have been tried. Apologies if you have tried/tested the following.

If you plug a phone into the same wall socket at your modem do hear any noise/static or is is sound quality very poor or low... Read more

I recently installed the latest version of Firefox. Upon using it, I found out that vertical scrolling using the mouse wheel does not work. It works in IE and any other program I use.

I have the latest drivers installed, and have had no problems with the mouse. I went into Firefox's Tools>Options>Advanced and switched the mouse options around a bit, but it still doesn't work.

It's getting very annoying and makes using Firefox nearly unbearable. I'd appreciate any help.

I even got it right now when I tried to scroll down a tiny bit to this text box. I scroll all the time with the mouse wheel, probably around 90% of the time, and it's very frustrating when it actually doesn't do anything. I've had times where I've just sat there and scrolled for about an entire second, and the page just sits there. I never had this problem in XP, and it is not the mouse going bad, or the mouse wheel going bad. It doesn't matter if I "spin" the wheel as fast as I can, or just move it one groove down. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

It's a Logitech MX518, and I've installed all the drivers for it from the website.

The lag becomes very apparent if there is some sort of animation on the screen, particularly flash, however, even these small animations to the right (the smiles emoticons) seem to lag it, if that has anything to do with it.

Any ideas?

Make sure you have latest version of BIOS (A17), latest chipset driver, video driver etc. for whatever version of Windows is running.

Hi, I may be missing something pretty basic here as my tech knowledge is pretty poor.

I thought I'd be flying from one website to the next but its not happening that way at all. Someone said I should consider buying an aircard to increase my computers ability to recieve more data from the router but then someone else said that is not what an aircard is for.

I'm having a problem with my download speeds. I don't have an ultra high connection, just 1.2 mb/s. My speed tests confirm that is exactly what I'm getting, but when I actually download something , it goes to 155kb/s and will go no higher. I've contacted my ISP and they say it's my computer. The speed test is showing what it should but I just can't get past 155. I've ran several malware, spyware and virus tests and they all come out clean. I'm at the end of my rope. Don't have a clue what to do next to get my speed up. This is what shows on IPCONFIG/ALL

Hi all,
I want to connect my VCR to the computer to transfer old home movies to DVD.
The Analog to DV device requires a 1 GHz processor. Mine is 498 MHz.

Regarding the speed, will the device work only slowly or not at all?


A:Solved: Video capture device speed vs. processor speed

It is not a matter of slow or not at all. It is most likely a matter of dropped frames. If you have a cheaper video capture card [one without hardware decoding] it will probably work however you will not like the result.

Video editing / encoding is cpu intensive. I would hate to think how long it would take to encode the video file after you capture it [with that cpu]

To give you some idea, it takes me about 15 min to encode approx 1hr of video with an intel dual core cpu. With yours it will be hours.

Last week I have purchased a WD 2TB Green Drive as well as a non-raid capable raid card Rosewill RC-212; since my older PC (WinXP32, Celeron D, 1GB RAM) does not have SATA ports. I have installed fresh drivers form Rosewills? website even though they are not needed for non-raid configurations. The PC recognized the card right away as well as the HDD. The write speeds are as expected, however the read speeds are between 300KB and 2500KB. I cannot figure out why the read speeds do not exceed 2.5MB? I have plugged the HDD as an external drive via USB and the read/write speeds are as expected. Anyone knows why and how to fix it?

I have tried 1TB WD green drive (1.5-year old) and it works as expected.

Update 2:
I have just spoken with Rosewill tech and he said that using PCI card and such a large drive it is expected to be slow. Personally I believe it is B.S. You?

P.S. for moderators: I have similar thread under storage and networking, but it no longer applies as such issue. Please delete it.

A:My 2TB WD Green has fast write speed but slow read speed

The Rosewill card's transfer rate is "up to 1.5GB/s." The WD hard drive's is 3.0Gb/s. Perhaps if you set the jumper on the 5-6 pins to activate the 1.5GB/s rate per this instruction: Western Digital.

I have this very annoying problem and I'm really out of hopes. I don't know what to do anymore. I'll make a summary of the problem and will be as concise as possible

So I have this Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop with a broadband connection (direct cable, no router) and 3 weeks ago I reinstalled my Windows. Everything went well until 2 weeks ago when the internet speed went down, dial-up like. Pages won't load, and if they do they load just partially. I called my ISP and they said they had no problem. I couldn't find any solution so I thought maybe, some sort of virus or spyware is doing this so I formated the whole hard-disk and did a clean install of Windows.

Unfortunatelly nothing changed, the download speed is the same. Here is a speedtest.net evaluation:


Drivers are up to date, no windows firewall, no antivirus and no windows update. The ISP support guy told me to deactivate IPv4 and IPv6 from Local Area Connection, but nothing changed. I did a TCP/IP reset which raised my down speed to almost 1 Mb, but after a few minutes it went back to "dial-up". With the down speed being the same, Speedtest sometimes shows me upload speed in between 50-70 Mb which is unbelievable (I will make a ss next time I see this).

And the very weird thing is that I have another netbook (pretty weak config, Intel Atom CPU, 2 GB RAM) and with the same cable it has normal speed (the kind of speed I had on this Dell too). An... Read more

Through the windows experience im at 7.8's / 7.4's... with my hdd at 5.9. looking at getting a ssd to level everything up.... but what i dont know is... how does the read/write speeds translate into processing.

what read speed is equal to the rest of my rig? I just dont know how it translates iops/1GB's read/write to GHz proccessing.

Here is the same test on my Intel 80GB X25 M

For an OS drive the advertised speeds really mean nothing to the average user unless you are going to be transferring large files all day. The most important thing is access time- how long it takes from the time you push the button until the application actually opens. No spinning circles with a good SSD.

Hi guys. I hope you can help on this issue I've been having with my internet connection, I don't know what to do...

I resently formatted my harddrive because my internet all of a sudden started being very slow but after the format it's still the same issue. Now I've tried plugging the connection line into my laptop and there there's no problem.

I am gettin' a slower download than upload...

I have a 10mb download/1 upload speed LAN connection. I ran a speed test on the same connection and on my stationary it shows like 250 kbs download and like 750 kbs upload, while on my laptop it shows like 8 Mbs download and 750 kbs upload... so what's the problem?

So far I've found out that it has nothing to do with the internet connection line or my NIC (I tried a brand new one and it was the same issue), it's not spyware or malware, it's not fragmented and under internet connections it says that I'm connected on a 100 Mb network card and there are no problems with any of the devices?

However I can see that if I open the job list, the download connection is very unstable going from up to 750 kb for a breif moment then falls to a halt at 0 kb... and moreover it says that I'm not using any percent of the network?

I'm on windows 7 and haven't had any problems before this, the rest of the system works just fine, but not the internet. If I try and download something it won't get higher than like 50 kb and then may... Read more

Hi; I have a Dynalink router and on plan which I get really nice speeds for me (downloads a few megabytes a second), using Windows XP via ethernet.
However as soon as a laptop is also plugged in also via ethernet and streams videos, the internet on my Windows XP computer is so slow, web pages can barely open.
Is there anyone to somehow make both of them at least able to both use the internet? What's the problem? Thanks in advance for any help

So, I'll boot up my laptop and everything will work fine. My download speeds will be somewhere near 20-25 mb/s and uploads are around 4-5 mb/s. I'll also ping test my computer with no packet loss, a ping around 20 and jitter around 1-3%. It all looks great and dandy (Pics below). Except, after about 15 to 20 minutes, my download speeds will dropoff to about 20-50 kb/s and my ping test goes through the roof to about 70-90 with jitter near 70%... Not good at all.

Now, I have the suspicion this is being caused by my internal wifi adapter (the Realtek), because when I use another external usb adapter (TP Link TL-WN722N) my speeds never fluctuate and I have no problem, ever.

Hello, I just got this x360 Spectre i7 15.6" laptop and I love it, except for the speed at which things load on the browsers. I have high speed internet and ran a speed test and the speed is as it should. I've tried multiple browsers, and even though I have a very strong connection to my high speed internet, it takes forever to open up even a single website. I regularly wait anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes for the site to load. I just got this computer so haven't even saved any files or installed any programs onto it besides anti virus software. How can I resolve this very slow loading time? I'd hate to have to return this computer, but cannot stand to have to deal with these frustrations with a computer I paid $1300 for!! Please help! Katy
