Apple has issued a firmware update for users of the new MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks who have been experiencing problems registering clicks on the new, buttonless trackpad. The issues started cropping up shortly after the new notebooks were introduced in October, but it is not clear how widespread the problem really is.

In any case, the company said it was looking into the issue two weeks ago and even Steve Jobs himself said in an email that the company was prepping a fix, which should now appear in Software Update for owners of the new systems. Appleā€™s release notes for the update can be found here.
