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.

Just notice that there is leftover (artifacts) left on the page on smooth scrolling (need to check if it does without the s/s on):

On viewing a bug in bugzilla, like <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=174049> and smooth scroll enabled...

After "Description Opened: 2002-10-11 17:58" there is a ruler. After it the initial post for a bug is shown and then the remaining... scroll with the wheel mouse/scrollbar buttons one at a time (i.e. slowly) until the ruler just dessapears from the viewport at the top. Go back once, so it's again in view. See the artifacts??

A dot or couple of dots appear just under the ruler in each of it's sides.

Thought I would mention it in case it's related ;) If it's not and no one can point to a bug that deals with this, I will submit the bug later today or tomorrow.
