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.

Scrolling by larger increments is definitely in the works. The main goal for the first patch was to get it working and tested, which has happened. Unfortunately, it's not straight-forward to just "scroll more" for when smooth scrolling is turned on. I'm working on it.
