    I've had the Curve 8530 for a few weeks now. Up until yesterday the trackpad was working correctly. The problem I am now having is that when I press the trackpad to open a link online nothing happens. I have to open the menu and click on Open Link. The trackpad works correctly in all other places except opening a link online. Is there a trackpad setting that I may have turned off by mistake? Thanks.

    Is it all links on any page, or only certain pages?

    If it's certain pages then it might be a javascript being disabled issue or something similar.

    The trackpad won't open a link on any web page. It used to and then yesterday it stopped for some reason.

    It doesn't work on any site -- cnn.com, nyt.com, etc.

    I would take your device in to have it looked at by a Tech.

    Showing the issue may prove there is a problem and it may get worse...

    one thing i noticed on mine is the links open, but sometimes they are the link above or below the link I want, really strange. I've tried this with BB browser as well as opera. One of the biggest problem sites is craigslist. . .

    Some pages don't render properly in column view. Try hitting X to switch to page view and see if they work correctly

    I have had the same issue. Usually after I use slacker radio. I just do the alt shift del. Problem solved. Opera mini will go buggy and freeze on me have to do the same thing. ( My curve is in an otterbox defender ).

    I have been having the same problem recently as well. I have to press the enter button to open the link. I'll try the page view option and see if that works.

    I was having this problem (thus my visit to this forum) and it was completely fixed with a battery pull.
