Mouse wheel scrolling by page instead of 3 lines

Posted

When I scroll my mouse wheel down or up, it goes by page instead of 3 lines (as set in Win7). This is happening only in Nightly 39.0a1 (2015-02-24), and I can't find where to change the setting, and frankly don't know how it got changed in the first place. Every other application does the 3 lines like they're supposed to. I was just scrolling thru my email and BOOM it started going by page. I've rebooted and tried holding every combination of CTRL/ALT/SHIFT and scrolling thinking that might help. Any ideas?

hi greystoker, nightly is an unstable development branch where things are bound to break or go wrong every now and then. what you're describing sounds like bug #1136177 which will be addressed in one of the next updates.

Thanks. Good to know. Weird part was, it was fine one second, and then not the next. I was actively using the browser (no restart) and it happened. :(
