Smooth Scrolling Now Available in Mozilla Nightly Builds

Tuesday March 25th, 2003

Thanks to the fix for bug 174049, the latest Mozilla nightly builds now support IE-style smooth scrolling. This feature is disabled by default. To enable it, use about:config to add the boolean preference general.smoothScroll with a value of true. To disable smooth scrolling, simply set the value of the pref to false. If you're not sure how to modify hidden preferences using about:config then you'll want our handy new guide, How To Modify Hidden Preferences Using about:config.

I used this feature, but I thought this is now covered by the pop-up blocking function. I've set pop-up blocking to "suppress popups" (which as far as I've seen so far does the same as the old scripting option). I only have a few pages where I need popups enabled and I just added them to the list of sites which are allowed to use pop-ups.
