Y470 - Possible bug regarding Synaptics touchpad driver and Firefox

Hoping I can get some help here, this has been frustrating me for a while now.

 

I have two input devices, my Y470's Synaptics trackpad and a Logitech mouse.

 

When using Firefox only with my mouse, pages scroll multiple lines at a time, like they should. If after starting Firefox I scroll with the trackpad, then switch back to my mouse, pages will scroll one line at a time. This persists until I close Firefox.

 

It's as if Firefox chooses the scrolling speed based on which input device it detects first.

 

The problem seems to go away when rolling back to Lenovo's/Synaptics' Windows XP touchpad driver (15.x). However, these older drivers are limited in functionality.

 

Can anyone offer some insight on this? Many thanks.

If not, could someone tell me if this is duplicatable on other Lenovo machines (not necessarily Y470s)? Thank you.
