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've made this extension before the mozilla implementation of smoothscroll was released, but by the time i set up the mozdev account, i was was a bit late ;).
short comparision between my smoothwheel and mozilla's smoothscroll:
disadvantages in comparision with smoothscroll: - only working on browser window. - incomplete detection of target object (forms, some images). - no handling of Up/Dn/PgUp/PgDn keys (easily implementable though).
regardless of the disadvantages, I find it quite usable, and pleasant to work with.
check it out on <http://smoothwheel.mozdev.org>
hope you enjoy it. cheers avih
