I have a Microsoft Sculpt mouse that has a tilt wheel, and I'm coming back to Firefox in Windows. But then I encounteted problems with horizontal scrolling with this mouse. Looks like Firefox recognized horizontal scrolling button of tilt wheel as left and right so it end up making the experience terrible when I want to scroll page with the tilt wheel. For example, when scrolling horizontally using tilt wheel among tabs in video sites like Youtube, the video will go backward or forward too. Similar thing also happens when texting, making horizontal scrolling in some forums became slow. I've tried a lot of ways, including disabling the 4th and 5th button of mouse in about:config, but none of those solutions works. This problem never appears in Chromium based browsers, but Firefox and almost all gecko based browsers have such problem. How to solve it?

Check "Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center" settings to make sure there aren't any app-specific assignments for the tilt wheel.

The only thing I've done is just enabling horizontal scrolling.
