comment How do I set up a firmware password on a MacBook Air?
I chose to restart the system and then I was able to access the utility from the menu on top. Thanks for the answer.

comment How do I set up a firmware password on a MacBook Air?
The USB flash drive contains only two files: Install Mac OS X, and Install iLife. When I try to "show the package contents" of the first file, I see a Content folder, and there doesn't seem to be any files called Firmware utility. If I try launching the installer, it says "To set up the installation of Mac OS X Snow Leopard, click Restart."

That works, but it makes the mouse incredibly slow :(

Another thing not removed by AppCleaner is Login Items under System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items.

comment Disable mouse acceleration
Do you mean that there is no mouse acceleration to begin with? Maybe it's not called mouse acceleration, but I added an example of what I mean in the question.

comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
@Griffo: alright, you were right, it's all a matter of timing on how fast you begin dragging after the fourth tap. If you delay even the slightest (what feels like a millisecond at times), you will drag the word. Could you please update the answer to mention that the dragging immediately after the fourth tap is important?

comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
@calavera: I'm confused, you got it to work? I was able to get your results (double tap the second time deselects a word) to work. Not double-tap-and-drag to select whole words (i.e. I still can't get my original problem solved).

@calavera: I was able to reproduce that result if I disable one finger dragging in the settings. @Griffo: If I use clicks instead of taps, everything on the macworld article works as described. However, it does not work with taps no matter how many times I try or how fast I do it.

That works. Unfortunately, though, I like the navigation gesture with three fingers, so I don't want to rebind it.
