Small or incremental scrolling on my MBP OSX 10.8.3 using an external mouse is extremely slow to a crawl. How do I configure my mouse to a Normal Scroll mode where every scroll is the same and creates fast scrolls in the window?

Try increasing the scroll speed in System Preferences > Mouse > Scrolling Speed:

Unfortunately, I've already visited this option. yet every incremental scroll only scrolls the page by pixels.. Only large scrolls are normal. – Some Noob Student Aug 18 '13 at 21:40
Okay. Try the Logitech Control Center (under Downloads). Then once it is installed, go to System Prefs > Logitech Control Center, select your mouse, then go to the General preferences and see if changing the scroll setting there fixes that. – daviesgeek Aug 19 '13 at 0:33
