How do I set a delay and repeat rate for page scrolling when clicking in the vertical scroll bar?
Is there (a place in about:config?) a way to set a delay and repeat rate for pages to scroll when long clicking in the vertical scroll bar?
As my reflexes slow, I've appreciated that almost every mouse button click operation occurs on button up, not on button down. I have the habit of pressing and holding a mouse button for a second or two with nothing happening until I release the button.
In the vertical scroll bar, scrolling starts the instant I press the button and continues at a high rate until I release it. And I'm just not fast enough any more to let go before several pages have scrolled by.
For the Windows keyboard, there is a "delay" and "repeat" rate that can be adjusted via the control panel. My problem is the frisky mouse, not the keyboard.
Is there (a place in about:config) a way to set the delay and repeat rate for click-and-hold in the vertical scroll bar?

I think Firefox relies on the settings in Windows' Mouse control panel, but maybe someone else is aware of some "secret" settings.
You might want to consider using the mouse "wheel" for scrolling the page instead of the scroll bar. Saves a lot of horizontal hand movement.
Note that if you happen to be holding the Ctrl key when you roll the wheel, the page display will zoom. You can use Ctrl+0 (that's zero) to reset it if that happens.
You can also try to use auto-scrolling by clicking the mouse wheel on a web page.
