scroll bar automation
like to see a button at the very top of the scroll bar and a button at the very bottom of it to assist us in jumping to the very top or the very bottom of long webpages.

hello, in case your keyboard has home/end keys, you could use those as workarounds.
true. but that's too much work :-)
i did however find the feedback menu option under the help. so i submitted the idea to the feedback people after i posted the question.

You can middle click the scroll bar to jump to a specific position if you set the middlemouse.scrollbarPosition pref to true on the about:config page (default on Linux, but not on Windows)
i went to about:config and changed the attribute from false to true.
but when i middle click the mouse button on the scroll bar nothing happens.
you may have to restart the browser once for the setting to take effect (&your mouse driver shouldn't overlay the middle mouse button with another function than a plain middle click)
Yes, that is stated in the Caveats: Changes to the preference only take effect after restart.
oh, i see now.
in other words i can position my mouse on the top or bottom of the scroll bar, then click the middle button to jump to those locations.
thanks for the info.
between the add-on and this setting, i now have two ways that fixed my problem.
In normal Windows scroll bars there is a right-click context menu of the scroll bar to jump to the top and bottom, but Firefox doesn't support that feature.
thank you both for both of your solutions!
