Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 460522
RFE: smart autoscrolling by middle click on scrollbar in firefox
Last modified: 2008-08-28 10:43:36 EDT
I have a good idea for better firefox UI
it's to make middle click assigned to autoscrolling only in the scrollbar
so that it won't interferes with what ever Linux users do with there middle
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
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.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
