Default Mozilla & Scrolling

Well I decided to give Mozilla a shot and I like it a lot except one thing. I'm on a laptop with no external mouse just like what'* pictured here (no that'* not mine, just a pic I found, but same model).

How the heck can you scroll?? It'* like the program doesn't recognize the scroll buttons on my laptop. It sucks having to use the bar on the right side of the screen all the time or the arrow keys.
Any other Mozilla/laptop users out there? Thanks.

It should be recognizing the scroll function if other windows programs recognize it. When I get back on my laptop tonight, I'll see if there'* something dumb in the settings I'm forgetting about.

Yeah I can open up IE and the scroll works fine. It'* JUST Mozilla as far as I can tell.

I'm on an IBM R51 that looks quite similar to yours as we speak, and I'm scrolling in Firefox with that centre button just fine.

hmmmm. i looked at the scroll options under Tools>Options>Advanced and "smooth scrolling" and "autoscrolling" didnt seem to do it. I just don't get it since I can scroll in other programs so I don't think I'm missing a driver or anything.

well the mozilla project is Mozilla 1.7.12 and it is basically like a IE version of firefox.... and firefox is well obviously the built up mozilla...they are based on the same platform...so when you show up at a website, it will usually say "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1" to the server logs.... basically the same thing when you come down to it..oh and by the way i have a Toshiba notebook and my scroll function does not work either..the little icon shows up but nothing happens....it is odd, but i usually use the arrows anyways...

if you do find out the problem let me know!

Scroll doesn't work on a Compaq laptop I have around here either...but that is in everything. Pressing the scroll button is equivilant to clicking...it used to work.
