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.

TAF is rather poorly done. The difference between finding a link and finding plain text is very difficult for the user to understand. But the main problem is that TAF is totally unreliable. Often TAF refuses to find something, even when I plainly see it on the page! In these cases the normal find will find it, but not TAF. Argh.
