    Ok, so I went to the apple support webpage and did all the junk they told me to do, but my might mouse still won't scroll down. It scrolls left, right, and up just fine, but for some reason it won't scroll down. The ball moves fine when i'm trying to scroll down, but, again, nothing happens...anyone have any suggests??? and Yes, i've cleaned it and haven't done anything to it and I can't think of anything I could have done to cause this...:confused:

    do you feel any resistance, or is it just free rolling?

    Mine will sometimes "not ketch" thus refuses to scroll.. I then flip the mouse and roll the wheel gently on a clean cloth surface for a bit. This usually fixes it.

    Sadly even the mightymouse can suffer from a bad scroll wheel from time to time. :(

    mine does this too, but a reboot seems to fix it.

    I usually beat the **** out of it a bit, and then it works.

    I have the SAME problem. I thought it was a Firefox issue, but no, it's defective mouse. I'm sending it back in for warranty repair.
    I LIKE the mouse, but even a new one is a bit flakey.

    mighty mouse won't scroll down

    Put a dab of rubbing alcohol on your finger tip and apply to the scroll button.
    This has always solved the problem for me
