SmoothWheel Version History

7 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 0.45.8.20130519.3 43.0 kB Works with Firefox 0.3 and later, SeaMonkey 1.0a and later, Thunderbird 0.3 and later

- Firefox 21 compatibility fix.
- Smoother scroll animation (and less CPU usage) - this version uses optimal timing (FPS - using requestAnimationFrame) which is supported on recent Firefox releases. So the timing configuration section will be invisible (and inactive). However, it'll be automatically available and configurable if optimal timing is not supported (old Firefox builds).

Version 0.45.6.20100202.1 43.0 kB Works with Firefox 0.3 and later, SeaMonkey 1.0a and later, Thunderbird 0.3 and later

This version is essentially a big evolutionary step from version 0.44.19. It introduces only one small new feature (keyboard shortcut to enable/disable SmoothWheel), but it refines and fixes many small and long-standing issues, thus providing a very solid package.

0.45.6: Fixed regression of 0.45.5: Page would jump to the left if horizontal scrollbar was not leftmost.
0.45.5: Fixed regression of 0.45.4: Start of scroll was sometimes abrupt.

Changelog 0.44.19 to 0.45.6:
* Improved compliance (mouse and KB) - Less places where the wrong part of the page is scrolled.
* Improved timing - Even smoother than before.
* Improved scroll when using Full-Page-Zoom.
* New optional keyboard shortcut: enable/disable SmoothWheel.
* Few more options to select from (refresh-rates and speed).
* New statistics tab on the configuration panel.
* Improved help text on the configuration panel.
* Improved Songbird support.
* Overall - many small improvements and fixed bugs.

Version 0.45.4.20100110.5 42.0 kB Works with Firefox 0.3 - 3.7a1pre, SeaMonkey 1.0a - 2.1a1pre, Thunderbird 0.3 - 3.2a1pre
