Scrolling has changed to a slower setting, and I can't set it back.

I changed nothing, this happened by itself, and I can't find any setting to make the scrolling "snap" like it used to.

This only occurs in SeaMonkey, in other apps scrolling is normal.

How do I fix this?

about:config, filter on "general*scroll".
Are any of the settings at non-defaults?

Any change if you restart in Safe Mode?

1) All those entries are at default, no non-default settings

2) Safe Mode makes no difference

Thanks!

Does it work even in a clean profile?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Also a possible clue - during one full page scroll, the first part goes fairly quickly, then it slooowwwssss down as it nears the end.

Also, if I scroll several pages in quick succession, it slows down more and more until it finally reaches the end.

Kick...

Also, if I try changing about:config settings as per above, must I restart SeaMonkey for changes to take effect?

I have been, but since I can't tell the difference, what's supposed to happen?

Another curious update - The "Page Down / Page Up" keys don't have this problem, it's ONLY under mouse control where scrolling is slow.

A specific page this happens on?
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.
