    I recently discovered a problem that wasn't there before.

    When opening my MBP screen (while still on) the touch pad freezes and I'm not able to move the mouse for scrolling with two fingers. After a while it works again. The pointer will move with just one finger and I can scroll with the side bar. This is however a pain.

    This was not happening when I got my MBP in march. (update maybe gone wrong)

    Using a 13" MBP with 8Gb and 750HD.

    Has anyone else this encountered this?

    Thanks for any info/help.

    I, too, occasionally have the same problem where I can't scroll with two fingers, but I can move the mouse around with one. This only occurs in Firefox for me.

    Thats kind of a weird one....

    Why don't you try a PRAM reset. (you only need to let it chime 2 times)

    Could also be your logic board or trackpad being funky... if they are taking a while to recognize multi-touch.

    I'm using Firefox as well. Have to see if it's only happening in just Firefox. When it happens I'm just so frustrated that I don't even notice which program I'm using.

    To be continued.
