Configuring back & forward (4th & 5th) mouse buttons

I have OS X 10.6.4, Firefox 3.6.10 and Ace TX18 mouse. Mouse works and I can configure OS X to Expose etc. for all six buttons of the mouse. Firefox handles click of 4th and 5th buttons same as 3rd (scroll). Shouldn't Firefox natively use 4th button for previous page and 5th for next page?

So, is there a way to get those buttons work?

Thank you -W-

I'm replying to myself here. Got it work with SteerMouse by setting 4th button to use keyboard shortcut cmd + left arrow and 5th button to use cmd + right arrow. USB Overdrive is a same type of software, don't know if it supports pure Bluetooth mice...

Only down side of getting around the problem like this is that if you're in a text box, the shotrcuts act as home and end.

If someone knows a better solution, please reply. :)
