    I just got my first laptop today. There's a special area next to the touchpad for scrolling up and down in web pages and documents. It works like a champ in all the Windows apps, but doesn't do anything in Firefox. Does anyone know of an extension that will get this to work within Firefox?

    I don't know of any add-on to fix this. I use my arrow keys to scroll. You might check this and see if it helps.
    Start> Run> type: control mouse then hit OK.
    Click on Hardware tab> Properties button> Advanced Settings tab, beside
    Wheel Detection: select Look for Wheel on the drop down. OK, APPLY and OK.
    If it doesn't help, you can change it back to Assume wheel is present.
