- by Aimhere, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Doesn't really have much effect on scrolling. Modern web browsers already SMOOTHLY scroll between those three-line increments, not "choppy" at all as Logitech claims.
What this extension DOES do is mess with the scroll wheel functionality on many websites. For example, on a weather site, the wheel can't be used to zoom in or out on the weather map while this extension is active.
- by Aro, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Logitech recommends to install just after mouse installation. Unfortunately it messes up with scroll events so it causes problems on pages relying on them (e.g. Adobe Cloud web apps). Also I don't see any difference with or without add-on so no point in installing it.
- by treesap, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5It's not for me. Effectively kills usability in exchange for aesthetics.
In essence, this extension just makes scrolls "slower." Rather than the page immediately moving to where the mouse wheel directs it, it moves there more slowly and, indeed, smoothly. It has a degree of reverse-acceleration, i.e. The first 80% of the scrolled section goes by quickly, while the last 20% moves slowly. This has the effect of making it difficult to immediately see where the page has been scrolled to, thus one cannot get the instant feedback necessary to determine whether more scrolling is necessary in order to view the part of the page desired.
Scrolling is designed to enhance usability. This extension sacrifices usability in exchange for making the action more visually pleasing.
(Side note: I fail to see why one needs to have the SetPoint software installed (and thus use a Logitech mouse) in order to use this extension. This extension is overall just marketing wank--simply another bulletpoint to add to the "features" section when selling the hardware.

- by clach04, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Does not appear to do anything/work. No difference under Windows with SetPoint Software Version: 6.69.126 (2019-04-25). Uninstalled, no idea why it needs the permissions it requests.
- by Firefox user 12745073, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5I could not find why it is required to give all those permissions: Access your data for all websites & Access browser tabs. Also it's not really updated anymore...
- by Firefox user 14732356, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5needs ALL web data? are you kidding me? why do most think this is ok.. just keep giving away anything they ask for, but this time its for a unneeded extension,, all my web data.. forget it
- by Firefox user 14671411, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Does not work with Adobe Lightroom Web (https://lightroom.adobe.com). This extension causes the Lightroom screen to blank and it has to be reloaded to see my photos. Smooth scrolling works on just about every other website, but no on Lightroom. If you're a photographer, I'd suggest disabling the Logitech Smooth Scrolling extension for Firefox.
- by groe, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Reads all data on all websites, including my passwords? Are you kidding? I only wish this review was going to Logtitech, rather than to Firefox, but I don't see why Firefox allows such extensions.
