A couple things can cause the mixture screw to not affect idle. It could have a vacuum leak, or it could be a worn seat in that side and it's still flowing with the screw all the way in. Try gently seating it with a little pressure, then back it out a couple turns and see if that helps.
Check for leaks around the carb with starting fluid sprayed at the base to see where it might be sucking air.
