Auto-repeat rate for mouse too fast

Hi, I don't know when it started, but in the last weeks I often have the problem that if I click the left mouse button into the scrollbar outside the slider, the slider/page moves not once but twice, as if I had clicked twice.

Indeed, the delay before a held-down mouse button starts to auto-repeat is really small in Firefox. So if I'm not clicking very very short but just with a little delay between pressing and releasing the mouse button, it starts auto-repeating and sends at least two click events.

Comparing this with other programs it seems not to be a GTK issue but a Firefox setting. E.g. gedit has a much longer delay before it starts auto-repeating.

Is there a way to adjust this delay in FF? I couldn't find anything about this topic. Or could one disable auto-repeat for the scrollbar field outside the slide (but not the arrow keys)?

cu, Frank
