    Hi there

    I installed the newest version of Firefox and for some reason, the scrolling function on the trackpad has stopped scrolling at all unless I'm clicking & holding on the side bar. I don't know what it's called but the part on the right side where the 'up' & 'down' arrows are... so only of I have my cursor/mouse over that blue part.....

    Any suggestions?? Anything at all?

    thanks so much
    peace

    Have you checked System Preferences > Trackpad >> Two Finger scrolling yet?

    yes, actually I went there first BUT for some reason, not just the two finger, but the three & four finger options don't have an option to click on it???

    I have attached a screenshot - hopefully you can tell me what I'm doing wrong??

    thanks

    And, now that I'm thinking about it, it's not allowing me to pinch open & close and rotate????

    I'm sure this is something simple but I can't figure out what I did

    could someone please advise me regarding my trackpad hardly working on the new Firefox?? I have gone to system preferences and for the options of scrolling, there's no box to check it.....

    HELP!!!

    Since I have installed the newest update to Firefox, it's been doing all kinds of strange things, aside from the trackpad. It freezes up, page loading is practically as slow as dial up used to be and I'm wondering if anyone else has had any issues w new Firefox??

    Also, when I open Safari, the trackpad works just fine??????
