    • I have Microsoft Edge 41.16299.248.0 which is supposedly the latest version and I have the whacko bug where I open a web page and if I don’t right click on that page before touching the scroll wheel, it instead scrolls thru my web history pages. I’m not tilting the mouse wheel at all! I’m attempting to scroll up and down, but the previous visited web pages go flying by on a hair trigger! This totally sucks! I don’t care for Chrome, but will download Firefox. This problem started after an update several months ago.
