What happened to Scroll to Click?

Posted

I work on a Mac. Just updated to the new OS system, thought it was a problem with that, but I'm able to scroll to where I click in the scrollbar in other apps.

I updated to the latest version of Firefox and now I can't get the the page to scroll to where I click in the scrollbar. If I click at the top of the scrollbar it just barely moves the page up (same with down). How can I fix this?

There is a pref available on the about:config page that enables this feature for middle-clicking. I don't know whether this work on Mac and whether you have a three button mouse or otherwise can emulate a middle-click.

  • middlemouse.scrollbarPosition = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

There is a pref available on the <b>about:config</b> page that enables this feature for middle-clicking.

Thanks, but I forgot to mention that I don't use a mouse, just the trackpad. Just tried your suggestion anyway, but that didn't do anything as far as using the trackpad goes.
