Arrow keys scroll three lines instead of one as of FF10, fix?

Posted

As of FF10, I can no longer scroll a single line in the browser and it is driving me nuts. Is there a way to go back to one line per arrow press scroll? Thanks!

Chosen solution

That seems to be a change in Firefox 10.

Maybe one of these extensions help.

Thank you, I will try that. It is a pity they did that without giving people the option to change it. If I remember correctly (as it has been YEARS) IE used to let you change how much it scrolled XD.

Not the best solution (smooth scrolling slows down my computer) but most assuredly better than that silly three line thing! Thank you!

Maybe file a feature request bug to have the keyboard scroll amount set via a pref for accessibility.
