View Full Version : touchpad question
03-24-06, 12:23 AM
iam still getting along with the i6000 from dell, but i formated recently and got new drivers for the mousepad. its got a really cool trick where if you are in internet explorer or just browsing on the hd you can go back and forward by simply dragging your finger on the top part of the touchpad. only problem is that i use firefox, so i was wondering if there was anyway to allow it to do the same thing in firefox.
Thanks in advnace,
Unfortunately I am not able to recreate this, but there is something that you can try.
On my laptop I am able to configure my touchpad so that each corner of it, when tapped, acts like a button. To do this I go into Star > Control Panel > Mouse and fool around with things there. You can set each corner to perform any function you want, including going backwards and forwards in a web browser (including firefox). When using firefox though, you might experience a problem with the touch pad scrolling, but if this is the case, many users have fixed it by updating their touchpad drivers from either your laptop manufacturer's website, or from your touchpad driver maker.
After trying some of this stuff out, be sure to let us know how goes!

thanks for the reply raven. i've tried looking for the setting so i can go back and forward, but i cant find it anywhere. any ideas on where i'd find it?
Alt + left arrow
Alt + right arrow
umm If you want to go the firefox extension route, you can probbably find an extension in firefox to do that. If it is in the mouse properties it would probbably be under something called mouse guestures. If not you should try older versions of your touchpad software or maybe a freeware program to control mouse guestures.
Before I can help any further, I just have a few questions about your dell.
Who makes the drivers for your touchpad?
What touchpad driver version are you using?
What version of firefox are you using?
What OS are you working on?
If you let me know, I will take a look for you and see what I can dig up.
