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 have never used IE on the Mac or Windows so I may misunderstand what smooth scroll is. Maybe someone can provide a short explanation of smooth scroll.

I added the preference to turn on smooth scroll. Honestly I do not see any difference with smooth scrolling on or off. BTW I am using the trunk build from March 26 Build ID 2003032609.
