    Macbook Pro trackpad highlighting problem when scrolling

    Facing this issue for a pretty long time with my Macbook Pro where it just highlights the text whenever I try to scroll. Why is that? Anyone else faced this similar issue before? Is there some settings to be changed to get rid of this? Thanks.
