Fix mousewheel scroling performance in Firefox
Firefox’ developers are great. But sometimes they tend to think too much for you.
In my case they broke a feature for which I specifically bought multiple mice: fast and endless scrolling. The Logitech M500 mouse has this feature and is great for database activities and reading of manuals or long documents.
So you bought a fancy mouse with ‘endless scrolling’ features so you never have the TL;DR fatigue?
And your browser broke your fancy scrolling feature?
Type in the firefox address bar:
enter in the search bar:
and adjust the following settings:
1 2 3 4
//mousewheel.acceleration.start sets the acceleration on, it allows to scroll faster when you are searching on a page mousewheel.acceleration.start -> set to 1 //mousewheel.enable_pixel_scrolling changes slow, smooth scrolling behavior mousewheel.enable_pixel_scrolling -> set to FALSE
Close the about:config tab.
The changes should be effective immediately!
Enjoy your fast scrolling feast!
