Cursor speed has decreased to the point that I cannot use either the touchpad, mouse or trackball. The only way to use Firefox at all is by touch screen.

It is possible that you accidentally enabled an accessibility feature in Windows.

Hi GRD Lock & Key, The only control in Firefox, that I am aware of, is scrollwheel speed. Please check your system's Mouse settings or other settings in regard to peripheral devices.

I am using a Kennsigton Trackball. There is no problem with any other software on my system. I have used a different mouse and/or the touch pad. The issue in Firefox is both the cursor speed and the scroll speed. if I use the touch screen everything works fine. I have tried just about everything possible, even to the point of uninstalling the software and installing a new copy w/ new profie. The problem just will not go away.

Help!

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
