Hi
Out of nowhere, the 3 finger swipe function on my alum MacBook stopped working.
I've unticked and ticked the boxes and I've restarted.
It seems that only 3 finger swipe isn't working. I'm having no problems with 2 or 4...
Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

What programs are you trying to use the 3 finger swipe in?

It's only supported by some apps, y'know. Firefox, for example, but not Safari (amazingly enough). So could the issue be that you're using a different application?

I'm using it Safari 5!

I just checked software update and there was nothing.

Thanks for your help

How odd. If you create a new user account, does 3 finger swipe work under the new account?

Just went on the account I made for my sister (never used) and it works!
This is really weird...

Open Disk Utility and repair disk permissions. Verify permissions first.
