Unhappy mouse and keyboard troubles

I bought both MS mouse and keyboard out in Alberta about 2 months ago, for Spring Break.

They have been working great for me, but all of a sudden, on Firefox, i cant copy and paste, and my mouse will skip while using Firefox.

Are my mouse/keyboard fried, or does MS make their input devices mess up with Firefox?

Mouse -

Keyboard -

doesn't look to be too great of a mouse, to be honest w/ ya. mice and keyboards don't have much in them to be fried, at best a capacitor. but I don' think that's the case.

This only happens in Firefox? maybe the buttons are assigned to a different function through some weird extensions you installed, maybe? maybe the mouse is skipping because it's killing the CPU (firefox is)...

i dunno, just shots in the dark, try a different mouse to test.

Are you copying and pasting with the mouse or keyboard? Does it fail with both?
