scrolling on touchpad doesn't work on firefox

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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:
