This is a defect that is caused by trying to use the two finger gesture to swipe between pages. In Chrome/FF it's supposed to go back and forward in the history, but if there is no history, then it will cause an error and prevent any future scrolling via the trackpad. A reproduction of the issue and a fix can be found in this video on Scroll Not Working ...

You can customise mouse scroll according to this Wiki article [1]. However, this article seems to be a bit outdated, e.g. with Emacs version 24.5 there is no need to set mouse-wheel-follow-mouse manually, because it is enabled by default. Personally, I have set it to (1 ((shift) . 5)), which make scroll by 1 line at a time by default, and 5 lines at a time ...

In case anyone else is having the same problem out there, this may not be the best solution but it worked for me. My trackpad had been clicking just fine anywhere on it. Suddenly it would only press down in the left bottom corner. I simply, closed the laptop, flipped it over and slapped it hard in corresponding area where the trackpad is. I also lightly ...

I had just done some testing to check this out when answering another question before I found my way here. That ability, at least on the Bluetooth Multitouch Trackpad, seems to be gone, at least for now. See the other answer if you want a few more minor details.

I went directly to the preference file for the trackpad to see if one could set both the Three Finger Dragging flag and the Dragging flag (with or without setting the DragLock flag) but though I could set both and the new values remained stable I was not able to get both Three Finger Dragging and Double Tap Dragging to function at the same time. (Actually, ...

I had the same exact problem. Drove me crazy trying to figure it out. Simple Solution. Open System Preferences, Trackpad Under the Point & Click tab make sure that the Look up & data detectors is set to Force click with one finger. Some how, mine got changed to tap with three fingers. I know I didn't change it and I'm the only one that has ...

Check other force click functions, like clicking on dock icons to show all windows, to make sure your trackpad is registering the clicks. I have the same new Macbook Pro and force click also stopped working in Safari, but it does work in the dock, so it must be a software issue.

Try using it in a native Apple application like Safari. I am suspecting that you are using Chrome, Opera, or some other application outside of the Apple ecosystem. If it doesn't work in Safari, then your you need to take it in for service straight away. If it does work, then you know that the hardware is good. What's left is that the 3rd party app ...

I think CommaToast has the right idea. OS X is probably using a lower quality rendition of the content when scrolling, to ensure that it can move quickly and smoothly, then refining the image once you are done scrolling. I have absolutely no proof of this, but this type of behavior was extremely evident in early versions of iOS. Apple loves image quality, ...

Take a look at USB Overdrive. With it help I've finally removed scroll acceleration and setup custom buttons on my Logitech m570.
