Firefox 1.0.2 scroll wheel navigation


grrrrrrr,,snarl...growl.

Whenever I try to scroll up in a page,m when I reach the top of the page FF devides that i want to activate the BACK button. Same thing happnes then for scrolling down and FORWARD.

I can't find any mention of this feature (lol) which either means that it's just me or that everyone else LIKES this behaviour....surely not?

Can this be turned off or am I back to Opera?

I have it sometimes, though not when I reach the top of the page, it is when I hold down shift by accident whilst scrolling.

Found it.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf still had legacy enteries to my 7 button mouse and referenced scroll as 6 7.

Xmodmap was half managing to get it all to work...quick edit and sorted

damn i like linux

I was having the same problem with FF 2. If i scrolled up(down) too fast, it navigated BAck(Forward), which is quite annoying!!It never happened to FF in Ubuntu, but only in my new ARch Linux installation.

I think it is sorted now by changing the key "mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.action" in about:config to value 1 (instead of 2).

Thank-you!!! I've been suffering from this problem my self ever since I installed Gentoo a couple of months ago! Don't know how I eventually found this thread, but I was searching Google for weeks without any avail.
