User Help for Mozilla Firefox
I have already installed the latest Synaptics Touch Pad driver from Synaptics Support website as instructed by Firefox Support but the touchpad scrolling still does not work on Firefox. Does anyone know what should I do?

Thanks guys for the hack. It worked beautifully as I couldn't even load new drivers due to the Cpad used by Toshiba in my model. It worked just fine with the current drivers.......you guys are awesome!!!!!! Now I love this browser even more than before......now if it only had sounds enabled like IE6 does .........
I'm having the same problem! I did everything too, the hack, the driver and I even chatted with an hp tech support but still no luck.
It's weird but sometimes I swear it works but only like for one second and when I try it again it doesn't work anymore
Thanks for the replies.
I did install the latest driver and I also did paste the following...
FC = "MozillaWindowClass"
SF = 0x10000000
SF |= 0x00004000
in c:\program files\synaptics\syntp\syntpenh.ini and i did restart too, but the problem still persists.

But with this hack only vertical scroll works, not the horizontal scroll. Does anyone know how to make horizontal scroll work
Confirming the problem with Synaptics TouchPad V5.9 on WinXP Home SP2 and Firefox/Thunderbird:
I think the problem is in the driver. Older posts claim that the addition of the following lines to SynTPEnh.ini solves the problem
(or other variations).
This is indeed the case for older versions of the driver. I managed to get scrolling working for Mozilla products with version 22.214.171.124 of the Synaptics driver. I failed with versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
So, this old fix does not work with versions 7.12.x.x of the driver apparently.

Thunderbird version 1.0 (20041206)
Just to let you know that I found a newer version of the Synaptics drivers that works w/o problems with Mozilla/Firefox/Thunderbird. It's 184.108.40.206, and it's provided (ehm, rather "borrowed") by Fujitsu-Siemens. Here's the direct link from their german webpage:
220.127.116.11 synaptics driver
I also have the synaptic touchpad. I tried two different 7.12.x.x drivers and the aforementioned hacks to the .ini files to no avail. Just downloaded the 18.104.22.168 driver christos linked to (uninstalling the previous driver first). Vertical scroll now works like a charm!!!! Didn't even have to hack the .ini file.
I'm using an HP dv1000/ winXP
Yeah. I think all driver versions starting 7.10.x include "mozilla" in their *.ini configuration file. The problem is that sometime around 7.12.x (I haven't found any 7.11.x versions) something changes in the synaptics <b>code</b>. Mozilla is still included in the *.ini file, but the algorithm is now different and scrolling no longer works.
If that link is removed, drop me a line and I will upload it somewhere. I've saved it on my hard drive.
Can anyone provide me with step-by-step instructions on how to fix this problem? I, too, cannot scroll with my synaptics touch pad and Firefox. I do not have the following file on my computer c:\program files\synaptics\syntp\syntpenh.ini
What version of the driver do you have?
I think that if you click on the link I provided in this topic on Tue 22nd Feb 2005, save the file on your PC and execute it, you should be able to get a working version (with the ini file).
You must reboot before scrolling works.
Let me know how it went.
(edited a typo)
That did it! All I had to do was uninstall the driver. Thank you for your help!
the driver at that link worked. i'm scrolling this page up and down right now. i didn't even uninstall the previous (newer) version, and it saved all of my settings, including some that don't have controls in this version.
very helpful, as just about everything this notebook does requires firefox.
