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.

You guys should take a look at autoscroll ( <> ) . I've been using it for a while and it's really cool. I'd be interested in seeing and comparing it with smoothwheel, smoothscrolling, etc.

autoscroll differs in that you click the middle mouse btn / mouse wheel on a page and jerking you mouse "up" scrolls the page upward. Similarly for the downward direction ; IE has something similar.

I wonder how many others have used autoscroll... It's been on mozdev for a while...
