Does this also apply to scrolling by the scrollbar?

Thank you very much.
Smooth Wheel development was over. It's a pleasure to see someone else writes an extension like that. I'm going to play with options... :D

Wonderful. A new must have. Just one thing: is it possible to have more "smoothness" ? I'm at 800 right now and I find it a bit "chopped" yet. But it's just a little problem/request.

Finally at last, a replacement for smoothwheel!

This works fine in Minefield, but the version needs bumping and the update url needs removing as well because minefield requires secure updates.

800 seems to be the largest value this animation method can provide.
Smoothness above this cause freeze of scrolling.
I think the chopped scrolling artifact is not by the smoothness management but is caused by lacking of frame rate. The frame rate performance owes to rendering performance of the browser, and also to your computer's power.

If you just want to make scrolling slower, try smaller stride size.

Thank you for your report. Now I can edit install.rdf for 3.x as soon as it's releaed as official one.

It seems people more than I expected prefer looose smooth scrolling. So I wrote little additional code to smoothing algorithm that allows little larger smoothness parameter (up to 850). Also make the scrolling animation sort of more reasonable. It's available to try at the sample page.

Ensure your current YetAnotherSmoothScrolling add-on disabled.
I'm using it at 540 smoothness by the way.

But isn't you who can change this frame rate ? my drivers/monitor allow me to have a frequency of 75Hz. So if there could be a better frame rate; it depends on this extension (or Firefox) I suppose.

If you just want to make scrolling slower, try smaller stride size.

Bah, I prefer to keep this ratio (stride=100). Like I said, it's just a little little problem.


Nice. I use 850 (and I could use 1000 :P). And the fact scroll bar keeps moving even if I don't roll mouse wheel is very nice too !
Thanks !

I love this extension but I have run across a problem.


When scrolling in a dropdown box, like a forum jump dropdown box that has scrollbars, the box will scroll but so will the entire page which causes the dropdown box to close. Is there an adjustment or fix for this?
It's like I said.

Click here and go to the bottom right corner of the page. Using the forum jump dropdown works fine while scrolling downwards as the page is already at the bottom but if you scroll back upwards with the dropdown open, you'll see the page scroll. And when you move the cursor to select a forum to jump to, the box closes.


It also does it on my own site.
It's like I said.
