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 know this isn't constructive, and will definitely get some disagreement, but...

Why the hell would we want the _WORST_"FEATURE"_EVER_ , from IE, into our beloved Moz? Smooth scrolling the bane of my existence, especially in labs where I can't change it. I cna find no redeeming quality in SS, and I don't know anyone (with a modicum of techno-savvy) who leaves it enabled on IE.

Sorry for the rant, -bZj
