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.

There seems to be a bug in the smooth-scroll feature. If I scroll up or down with the Mouse Wheel too fast, CPU usage goes up to a 100% and the windows becomes unresponsive. After maybe 5 seconds, CPU usage goes back to normal (6-7%) and the page continues scrolling.
