    Firefox problems with ibook trackpad
    I am a recent switcher who installed firefox on my new ibook. When I use the two finger drag to scroll method, firefox seems to follow any link that the mouse crosses. I do not have trackpad double tap enabled. I looked on the firefox site and did a quick Google for the problem but didn't turn anything up.

    pls help

    1. go to about:config (i.e. type it in FireFox' address field)
    2. set mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.action to 0
    3. set mousewheel.withnokey.sysnumlines to false
    4. play around with the mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.numlines and mousewheel.withnokey.numlines values until you're satisfied with the scrolling speed
    Yes, that is extremely annoying. What is happening is that it is going back to the last link that you visited -- like the back button, I believe.

    I found it here, towards the middle: http://www-users.kawo2.rwth-aachen.d...fazz/iscroll2/
