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 :)
I've been using Grab and Drag for Firefox for so long that it's a shock to me when I use a different browser or someone else's Firefox without it. It's a wonderful add-on. The ONLY problem is that I have to remember to disable it before clicking on any part of a YouTube video. If I forget, the mouse pointer/hand disappears. The only way that I know of to get the pointer back is to shut down Firefox and restart it. That is the only reason for 4 stars. Otherwise, it's a 5+.
I've been looking for a way to get the drag effect using touchscreen in FF and Linux. This add-on seems perfect. Dell 13 7000 2-in-1. Thanks.
Glad to see this add-on is still being updated, it's an absolutely essential add-on for Firefox. But can you look into the issue of "disappearing cursor" as soon as a page is playing Youtube video? The mouse cursor begins as soon as the Youtube video window is clicked and then as soon as you click on any part of the browser outside the active video area, the cursor disappears.
This addon was a great help to me for many years! Thanks!
For those looking for a lightweight e10s compatible replacement, there is a https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/scroll_anywhere/
This has been one of the most useful add-ons to date, in my opinion, hence the 5-stars rating, as it greatly increases the flexibility of scrolling and allows to adapt that to your personal preferences, especially if you don't like FF's built-in autoscroll functionality - I've never liked clicking the middle mouse button ever since mouse manufacturer merged it with the scrolling wheel, which is fine, but pressing the wheel really feels odd to me.
As long as you don't enable e10s (Electrolysis, the multi-process architecture Mozilla's been working on since early 2009), Grab and Drag works fine even with FF 49, but it stops doing so completely when e10s is enabled.
If someone apt and skillful at these things would please adopt this add-on (or fork it into a new project, I suppose), that would be brilliant.
But it don't work on http://www.rbc.ru
I have used this extension since it was first released and I have send a lot of feedback to the devellopers at the time.
Since few months it was not working anymore so I just disabled it, but I cant use Firefox withouth. Coming on this page I see that it is because of e10s and indeed it seems that I started to see this bug since I upgraded and enabled this feature on Firefox.
So, I really hope that this will be fixed as this extension is one good extension for FF and why I continue to use this browser.
It was one of the most useful addons.
Hope for e10s update to use it again.
I was about to drop a one star bomb and remove the thing, but the reviews before mine say its e10s that's causing it to not work. I loaded up a non-e10s window and saw that it works fine. Nicely, infact. I've used alternatives, but the options you provide definitely make it the superior version. Fix compatibility and I'll reenable it to use daily and update this review to 5 stars.
have been using it but since i start using e10s it is disabled. considering to update it? might have to find other extension...
It seems it doesn't support e10s but since e10s is disabled on my profile, I couldn't say if it still properly works despite that.
I hope it will be compliant with future firefox release. I love it. Do you plan to update it?
Don't be fooled into thinking this is only for touch interfaces. I LOVE using this to scroll web pages and even images. I've used it for maybe a year, but since installing Ubuntu I've only just now reinstalled it. It's not as good as Google Earth's scrolling algorithm for momentum because it only either carries horizontally or vertically, not both, but it's a darn bit better than using scroll bars. I can't believe this functionality is not already in the browsers!!!!!! And I like it so much it's hard to go without it in other programs. I understand not every program is equally suitable, but I think it's underestimated too.
EDIT: Some commenters say it doesn't work on youtube for them. It works ok for me.
But I do have trouble sometimes getting momentum to work in different places. I was able to fix most of it by changing hte settings. It's not really bad anyway. It's still very reliable and highly recommended.
Btw I'm using Firefox 41.0.2. This is what Kubuntu uses. I don't choose the version.
SO very much, a MUST HAVE if using a touch-pad/touch-screen, specially touch-screen
Very good concept and use. If this not only a add on for Firefox, it can apply for all Windows programs, that's excellent!!!
This thing is not being upgraded unfair to say
Grateful you for sharing the meantime, good luck wish you filled in the previous(next) day
The lack of a lot of ability to use English
! Nevertheless, it leaves a good impression
I've been using this wonderful add-on for years (Mac OS)... to the point where I feel hobbled when using a different browser. However, a few Firefox versions back from 38.0.5, I my cursor disappeared when using YouTube. I don't know if it's caused by Firefox or YouTube or both, but it sure is a problem and the only way that I have found to get my cursor back is to disable Grab & Drag... and that's a major drag.
If anyone has run into the same problem and found a work-around, please post it.
Momentun feater doesn't work well. (windows 8.1)
The only reason I need this is for a touchscreen, but it is pretty useless for scrolling down a page because neither its momentum nor multiplier features actually work on a touchscreen apparently. (Please add support in future releases.)
(The flick feature likewise appears not to work on a touchscreen, but that wouldn't be suitable for my wrists anyway.)
VERY useful on windows 8. Everytime I need to select text on the screen, I switch of hand (the icon that shows on the toolbar). I would suggest that the author not say that it is not valid for windows 8/8.1 touch devices!
