That's exactly what my ficus tree has!!! (see "help with  ficus tree"

I wonder if it's a ficus tree thing or if it's a pest.  They're like
little fuzzy brown oval-shaped things, and they scrape off with your
fingernail.  I WANT TO KNOW WHAT THESE ARE!!!! If you find out, let me
know.  This is driving me nuts. 

with fuzzy brown dots on her ficus too, thank you very much!
