Page scrolling with ThinkPad does not work. On the older Version it works.

Reproducible: Always
Can you let us know what Thinkpad model you have?

Also, I see you have a email address.  The reason Trackpoint scrolling doesn't work reliably anymore is because Lenovo's drivers have a Mozilla specific piece of code in them that doesn't like changes we made internally.  If there's any chance you're in a position to help fix this or to put me in contact with people who can, please contact me out of the bug at my email address and I can give you more detail than you ever wanted to know about what exactly the problem is.

Okay. I will check that internaly and will inform you if any fix is available.


Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to the people working on this at Lenovo.  I would be more than happy to walk them through what the problem is with the driver.

Same problem here. Upated to firefox 5.0 and scrolling with Trackpoint doesn't work anymore. Very annoying.

Win XP on Thinkpad X41
Hello everyone. I am hoping to get some additional help. I have installed SeaMonkey 2.2. I have an IBM ThinkPad with the center mouse key that, when held down, allows scrolling by moving the track point device. SeaMonkey used to allow scrolling and the scrolling also worked in Word Perfect menus and in Windows boxes. When I select "Use smooth scrolling" in the SeaMonkey preference under...
	Jamie	...Appearance Content, and go to Control Panel Mouse and tell that properties choice to use smooth scrolling, I can scroll in SeaMonkey (with a different icon) but can't scroll in my word perfect or windows folders menus. When I set it to scroll in Windows or Word Perfect, I can't get it to scroll in SeaMonkey. Is there some other way to get around this problem? Thanks in advance for the help.
