I can only imagine how frustrating this problem must have been for those of you who were otherwise lucky enough to have purchased one of the new unibody MacBooks or MacBook Pros.
Evidently, clicks on the new glass trackpad may or may not be recognized. Very random. Very annoying. This firmware update addresses the issue. It downloads as a package that will install an updater application into the Applications/Utilities folder and will launch it automatically. Follow the instructions in the updater application as best you can with your occasionally clickable trackpad and I hope to see you happy and smiling on the other side.
If for some reason the firmware update doesn’t go so well, Apple has some suggestions.
