Disable Mouse4 and Mouse5 Forward and Back button functionality

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to disable the functions of the mouse side buttons in the maxthon browser?
They are not listed in the shortcuts in the options menu.

I currently use the buttons for push-to-talk in a voice chat client and its annoying to constantly go back and forward when trying to chat with friends.

Here is a guide on how it is done in Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1008310

I did and it doesn't appear to work.
I have however found a workaround for anyone interested, but it requires some additional software called X-Mouse Button Control:

1) Download and install X-Mouse Button Control from this URL: http://www.highrez.co.uk/downloads/XMouseButtonControl.htm
2) Run the Program and Right click the taskbar icon and click SETUP
3) Under Application / Windows Profiles on the left side click ADD
4) Find and add Maxthon 5
5) Under Layer 1 on the right pane, change Mouse4 and Mouse5's dropdown box to Disable
6) Apply and Close

This only disables mouse4 and mouse5 for the Maxthon window so you can still use the buttons to reference other programs while Maxthon is open.
Hopefully they add the functionality to disable these mouse buttons in the future so we don't need 3rd party programs...
