Scrolling with Synaptics Touchpad in Firefox with Vista doesn't work in browser. Works in other browsers.

Have read every other question related to this problem is several forums. No help. Need fix before I go crazy. Using Toshiba U300 laptop with Vista. Was experiencing other issues with Chrome and thought I give FF a try but will not be able to keep if I can't scroll by touchpad. Thanx in advance for any help you can give me.

Try to modify the ui.trackpoint_hack.enabled pref on the about:config page from the default value -1 to 0 or 1 to see if that makes the scroll pad work.

Close and restart Firefox after changing the ui.trackpoint_hack.enabled pref.

Thanx, but not sure what I did yesterday with all the Answers I read on different forums. It fixed itself yesterday.
