I meant which version of YASS, not which version of Fx.

The latest YASS is, as I mentioned, Version 3.0.21 Released July 3, 2012. The intermittent issue you are experiencing, and I used to experience, went away (for me) when I updated YASS. :)

Since Firefox 21 - Aurora it is never possible to scroll on https://addons.mozilla.org
and a couple of other sites. I have to deactivate this add-on end it works again.
I tried to add https://addons.mozilla.org to the blacklist, but there is no change.
Can someone help?

I'm having the same issue. It appears that another extension developer (Vimperator) has had a similar issue (only left and right scrolling) and determined a fix.
https://code.google.com/p/vimperator-la ... ail?id=814
The main.js script in YASS has a function that appears to be similar to the one they patched called findNodeToScroll: function(orig,hint,log). I don't know enough to determine what needs to be modified.

It's still possible to scroll up/down with Aurora 21 on those pages where it fails, if the pointer is held over the area of the scroll bar.

Since it's such a glaring fault, I'm sure the developer will fix it sooner or later.

Hi, kataho, thanks for your greate extension.

I am also using Firegestures, and I enable the "Wheel Gestures", when I hold right-button then wheel up or down, I can switch to previous or next tab.

But there a problem, when switch back to original tab, the scroll-bar position was changed, it's annoying. After disable YASS, the problem won't happen.

I think the wheel up/down action also handle by YASS, then YASS scroll up/down the page change the scroll-bar position.

To solved this problem, tell YASS don't handle the wheel event when holding the right-buttong. So I hacked the YASS, just add a line.

Code: Select all
diff --git a/main.js b/main.js
index 38343e0..5d5f3b3 100644
--- a/main.js
+++ b/main.js
@@ -127,6 +127,7 @@ var yass = {
        {
                if(!this.m_pref.enabled) return;
                if(ev.altKey || ev.shiftKey || ev.ctrlKey) return;
+               if(ev.buttons === 2) return;
               
                if(gInPrintPreviewMode == true) return;
 


It look work fine, but don't know any side effect.

Can you add this feature? skip scrolling when holding right-button.

It is better add an option in preferences dialog.

Is there a way to get this amazing add-on working with Firefox 21 Beta 1?

It probably has been asked already,but would it be possible to add an export/import settings option in the Option tab? That would make things a lot easier when installing YASS in a new profile.

Did anyone else notice scrolling with YASS became laggy (like a game/movie with low fps) in both FF24ESR and FF26? I've created a new profile and reinstalled Firefox 24&26 but it didn't help. Default scrolling is smooth, however, especially after I set layout.frame_rate=240 and layout.frame_rate.precise=true. I tried to launch FF26 with two different profiles at the same time - one with YASS, another with default scrolling (smooth scroll=on in settings) - and default scrolling was obviously smoother. Updating driver also didn't help.

The problem is definitely not with YASS settings as well because increasing smoothness only makes lag more evident. I've also tried to use SmoothWheel and found out it provides a very smooth scrolling. However, it is far less configurable.

I've heard that SmoothWheel uses some special technique to interpolate frames, and as far as I understand layout.frame_rate has something to do with frames as well. Maybe that's the reason why YASS scrolling is laggy - it simply doesn't use the same technique as SmoothWheel and default scroll? :)

Quote from AMO review:
https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/a ... scrolling/
This could be dangerous if you leave the bouncy edge feature on. Inserts all kind of code in your CMS editor window (Joomla for example). So be extremly careful and if you opt for using this, disable immediately the bouncy edge feature

Should I be worried about this?
