I am a first time Magic Mouse user. I love the vertical scrolling on web pages. However, on Google Calendar, scrolling left-to-right makes the calendar move forward and back between months. I'm constantly accidentally scrolling my calendar with the Magic Mouse.

Is there I way I can tell the Magic Mouse to not do the left/right scroll/swipe thing, but to still do the up/down scroll/swipe thing? One a per application basis? Or some other solution I'm not thinking of? This uber complaint thread makes it seem like it's not possible to disable this feature in Google Calendar (although I'm happy to be corrected there). 10.12.5, if it matters.

There are tons of very old threads on the Google Forums around this but I finally turned up one which linked to this Chrome plugin which kills the scrolling in Google Calendar. Phew!


As a side note, here's an interesting bit of debugging by Peter Torelli which clearly shows it's just lazy coding in GCal: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/docs/HeZb8Wv8X5k
