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.

With normal scrolling, the page content just jumps suddenly when you push the arrow keys. With smooth scrolling, the content slides. It's supposed to be easier on the eyes, but I've been so used to normal scrolling that smooth scrolling gives me a headache.
