    i just transfered my old user account from my previous macbook pro to my new macbook pro april 2010 15" i7.

    the momentum scroll effect on the space bar (in for example safari) is not working.
    it's there when i'm using a different account on the same new macbook pro.

    regular momentum scrolling on the trackpad works just fine. i suppose it's because of the transfer from the old account.

    does anyone know how i can re-enable this feature? maybe through terminal?

    thanks in advance!

    ummmm momentum scrolling is only for trackpad. the trackpad recognizes how fast you're scrolling and uses that to make it scroll faster/slower.... spacebar just moves down the length of the scrollbar on the side. also doesn't work with external mice (not sure about the magic mouse... maybe)

    thank you. maybe i'm using the wrong term here.
    but on the new macbook pros the page animates down just like a really fast scroll would, instead of just jumping down in a flash...

    can anyone help with this?
