Does anyone know how I could get my notebook touchpad scroll to work with firefox? It shows the little scroll icon but won't budge, I have to use the arrow keys to scroll or other methods work too. Thank you so much for any help on this.

    By doing a bit of googling, I found others having the same problem. Three solutions I have found all deal with drivers, so it seems to be hit or miss.
    --update to newest drivers for your touchpad
    --roll back to older drivers for your touchpad
    --uninstall the drivers and use windows default drivers for your touchpad

    By the way, here is a link to updated drivers from Synaptics, the touchpad manufacturer:
