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.

I accidentally set general.smoothScroll as a string instead of a boolean. I tried resetting and recreating the pref, but even if I create a new boolean general.smoothScroll, the string one stays. I can't find prefs.js on my Windows system to edit, otherwise I would.
