Touchpad double tap opens some links, not others

Specs: Windows 7
Touchpad double click opens some links, not others. For example, There are three buttons to buy tickets to three different events on the mlb.com All Star Game site. One button will open the link with double tap, two will not. Left button has the same behavior, when set to Press = click. Links will open with a right button + menuselect open in new window.

I've been through all of the mouse and touchpad settings with no luck.

Sounds like the button is breaking. You should try hooking up an external mouse and seeing if there's an improvement.

I don't think so. I open the touchpad utility and I can accomplish the double click test countless times. I tend to think it is a programming/script issue.

So it works completely fine outside of your web browser?

That is correct. I tried what you described with a mouse, same result on left mouse as on touchpad as on left touchpad button. I attempt to doubleclick on a link in my email and nothing yet I can navigate to a desktop proggram icon and launch without a problem. This problem is exclusive to internet applications. I am going to try Firefox and see if the problem remains.
