    Just updated Firebox and my apple mouse couldn't scroll down. Freaked out but found this:

    Scrolling issue on Firefox after upgrading to OS X Mavericks

    Some OS X Mavericks users have experienced issues scrolling after attempting to swipe to a previous page. This issue has also been reported on other browsers.

    Try one of these solutions until Apple delivers a long-term fix.

    Change your System Preferences

    First Option:
    Click on the Apple icon at the top left corner of your screen to open the menu.
    Choose System Preferences, and then General.
    Set your Show scroll bar setting to Always.


    Second Option:
    Type about : config (Eliminate space between about : config - turns into a smiley if I leave it as is - should be all together) in your address bar and press Return.
    When the This might void your warranty warning page appears, click on the I'll be careful, I promise! button to continue.
    In the search box, type in browser.gesture.swipe to bring up the following preferences:
    config swipe
    Right-click on any one of these preferences and select Modify to edit its value.
    Delete all the text in the string value field, and then click OK to save your changes.
    clear config
    Repeat steps 4-5 for each of the following preferences:
    browser.gesture.swipe.down
    browser.gesture.swipe.left
    browser.gesture.swipe.right
    browser.gesture.swipe.up
    Changing your about : config settings could affect Firefox's performance. To change your settings back to the default, right-click on the preference and select Reset.

    My computer is updated so there is no current fix.

    Wanted to drop this on here in case it helps anyone. TGIF Shedders.

    Unbelievable! Bunch of angry folks on the computer. Only a matter of time until these fucks upgrade their browser and are hit with this crap.
