Thanks and goodbye! We had a nice time!
This is a handy addon which makes the browsing experience smoother and easier.
Unfortunately not Firefox 57 compatible though. There's two or three alternatives:
Drag To Scroll (this one's mine)
Drag On Web
Until recently, grabbing and dragging the screen to a desired point in the page worked flawlessly -- but now it's as likely as not to jump right back to the top of the page, forcing me to scroll all the way back down to where I wanted to be, past all of the content I've already seen.
Frankly, I just don't see this extension having a place on my system anymore.
It works for the most part like expected, but if enabled, whatever text gets selected will get deselected in two seconds. Makes it harder to cut/paste with only the mouse.
It currently is "Not compatible with multiprocess.".
The image link below shows how to force install incompatible add-ons:
I just use this add-on to grab and drag using mouse middle-button, and it works with no problem on FF 55.0.3 (64-bit)!
I have made a new add-on like this:
It is perfect but old for the new version of firefox.
At first scroll in new tab it jumps back to the top after scrolling.
I love this because it really helps to scroll a website with a wacom tablet and a pen.
Only the "jump-to-top"-bug really bugs me.
>left click often move page back to the top
The same phenomenon occurs.
really works nicely. Not perfect. But very nice anyway.
left click often move page back to the top
You have changed my life!
I've been using this add-on for years and I'm sorry to see you go. Thanks for a great work!
PS: I found an alternative add-on compatible with new Firefox called ScrollAnywhere
I can't imagine work without this addon. This is first addon I install to the FF. Thank you for keep it up to date.
But now every first left click move page back to the top. One star down for this annoying thing.
Works well, but prevent me to use the context menu, maybe I don't know how to set the options well?
Depuis la mise à jour, quand on scrolle, en appuyant avec le bouton gauche, parfois la page retourne tout en haut au moment où on relâche la bouton gauche.
Merci Firefox... :(
Je remettrais 5 étoiles quand les problèmes seront réglés.
nice addon :)
but since a month theres crap going on?
when i scroll with the right mouse button and then release the button the context menue pops up nearly every time! o_O
mostly the page jumps to the top and orientation is lost...
what can i do?
Author, please dont leave us) I want to use scrollbar drag in FF53+
Like the two commenters below, the page intermittently jumps back to the top of the page making it completely unusable on Firefox 53.
Firefox 52 still working great.
After an updating to 53 the add-on work button beggins jump me back to the start of the page everytime when I click on left button any link or check the box on the page.
When scrolling down for the first time when visiting a website like reddit, the page will jump back to the top
On right mouse click in FF 53 opens page context menu, but in FF 52 works fine. Please fix it :)
