Is anyone out there familiar with the "Mile Wide Back" addon? It allow you to go to the previous web site page or the next page with a left/right mouse click on the left page border. I'm hoping someone who knows it's history will have a workaround for a problem it has. Apparently, the developer is no longer available.
I've been using it for years. It was modified for quantum, but there is a problem. One of it's functions is to scroll thru tabs with a mouse wheel turn. I wouldn't want that feature even if it did work right, but it's broken.
One lone click of the mouse wheel on the left page border and it scrolls thru 6 tabs. Two clicks, 12+ tabs, etc. There's no option to disable that feature.
However, in it's pre-quantum version, there were about:config commands that could modify it's behavior.
I have another handy app, Volume2. You can set it up to change volume with a mouse wheel turn while touching the left border of any window. Up until recently, this feature superseded the Mile Wide Back function, but lately it stopped helping.
Since neither the apps have changed in over a year, I believe the change in behavior is due to Firefox 88,which was released around the same time this started happening.
