Description Muayyad Alsadi 2008-08-28 08:45:45 EDT
I have a good idea for better firefox UI

it's to make middle click assigned to autoscrolling only in the scrollbar
region
so that it won't interferes with what ever Linux users do with there middle
mouse button

most people are not aware that firefox do have autoscrolling
and even when they know about it, they will disable it back
because we need to copy and paste with middle mouse button
and we do other things with it

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Issue138#Firefox_Mouse_Woes

middle clicking the scrollbar is not strange it's there in other web browsers
like IE and opera

and to make Windows users happy this limiting the autoscrolling region should
be only defaults in linux

ie. instead of having autoscrolling on and off
we should have autoscrolling full or smart (or limited)

Thank yo ufor filing this bug upstream as well, because we believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
