    yea, it's my stupid way of saying the 4th button on the mouse. it's where your thumb rests.

    Have you installed the software with the mouse? I am running the 1.1? Logitech control center software for the MX500 mouse which has two buttons on the side (8 in all) which are for forward and back on web pages. They work great for Safari, explorer, etc. Love the mouse. You set preferences in the software which after installed is found in system preferences. You need to install the software then restart to get full functionality of the mouse. good luck

    You can also command key and the left arrow key will take you back. Also the command key and the [ key will take you back. Just incase your using a laptop and have no mouse connected.
