    I just need to know whether the issue I'm experiencing is inherent to my trackpad or not.

    Basically, if I click with one of my fingers at the bottom half inch (some spots don't work up to an inch from the bottom) of the trackpad, and another anywhere else on the trackpad, it right click, and nothing happens. If I put two fingers at the very bottom and stack them vertically, again nothing happens. Though if I click with two fingers at the very bottom, but have them horizontally stacked (and abnormally close together), right click does work.

    TL;DR Anywhere else on the trackpad right clicking works as normal, but if I have one of my two fingers at the bottom, there's no response and no right click.

    Anyone else? If you have a macbook pro, this will take you 15 seconds to test out :s
