Yes (I had to check - I track changes to /etc but not to mozilla/profile)

Sorry - I should have suggested you dump your configs, and then diff
against mine.

user.js may show any non-default customisations, prefs.js will show
non-default customisations (configs from user.js are imported into it).
You may not have user.js - the profile I use has been updated over many
years and has some older config files.

I'm guessing the problem is not related to a style - but that should be
easy to prove.

Have you checked the system mouse settings? (button order, mousewheel
scrolls by x lines, etc).
