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.

smoothScroll works very nicely for me, except for one thing: the step size is too small. With smoothscroll on, stepping up or down should move the document by a larger amount, since the movement is easier to follow. I estimate that the step size should be doubled.

Does anyone know if it's possible to tweak the step size (say in about:config)?
