Compiled and tried that.

Had a question about this new item:

Autoscroll support - middle clicking an empty part of a page allows
for scrolling by moving the mouse (bug 304563)

If it means clicking button2 on an empty part of a page and moving
the mouse to scroll, it doesn't work.

Do you have to keep button2 depressed?

Anybody tried this, it's in "What's new".


I haven't used Mozilla, but Firefox has had it for a long time. So it
might be new for the application suite.

Anyway, in Firefox it works with the middle click. So if you have a
two button mouse, you need to have the Emulate3Buttons and click both
buttons to simulate a middle click.

HTH, Simo
Thanks, Simo!

Funny deal: that does *not* work in Seamonkey 1.0. But it *does* work
in TBird 1.5 where I read your note. I have a 5 button mouse with 2
wheels and indeed clicking the middle button shows a little icon and
then moving the mouse moves the page.

May be a good reson to try Firefox instead of Mozilla or Seamonkey!

Have you looked at Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Mouse Wheel in Seamonkey?

I did. But that does not say anything over enabling/disabling this middle button behavior.

Neither does Seamonkey honor the "home" and "end" shortcuts in a page.

Back to mozilla1.7.12!
