What make and type of mouse do you have? I use a microsoft wireless optical wheel mouse with both Firefox, my main browser and IE7. Are you using it as plug & play, or have you installed the software that came with the mouse? If not this may be the answer.

In FF's Tools>Options?Advanced tab>General tab, check out that the scrolling features are Enabled.

Funnily enough, I use Firefox, and can scroll OK with my cheap PCline wireless mouse, with no problem, and I haven't even got scrolling enabled.

Try downloading a fresh copy of Firefox ( is current) and re-install.
Failing that you may have a system error, try going to run and enter sfc /scannow [Notice the space between sfc & /].
You will need to have you XP CD handy.
