In Snow Leopard and earlier (or perhaps the difference was with the hardware; I don't know which as I updated my computer and OS simultaneously), there was a preference under Trackpad to change the speed needed to perform a double-click. How can I speed it up now that it isn't there?

In Lion, the trackpad double-click speed slider and a few other trackpad options have been moved to: System Preferences > Universal Access > Mouse & Trackpad > Trackpad Options.

So that's where it went! I actually went to that tab of that pane in looking for it, but I didn't click on that button. Silly me. ;) – timothymh Mar 11 '12 at 21:09
