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 entered a preference incorrectly and am not able to delete it. Can I only do this manually?"

The Reset option will generally neutralise a pref's affect. I think the only when to remove it entirely is by editing prefs.js by hand. It would probably be really dangerous to let users remove arbitary prefs from a GUI.
