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.

if you have a long web page on the screen, and click the scrollbar (or use the keyboard) to jump down a page, then usually mozilla will just jump immediately to showing the new part of the page. with smooth scrolling enabled, the new part of the page will scroll onto the screen from the bottom instead of just appearing.

probably the best thing is to try using it...
