Grab and Drag 220.127.116.11.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart

About this Add-on
Please do not contact me with requests to update Grab and Drag. I no longer have the time to do so. Thank you.
Note: This add-on was originally developed in 2005, for pen-based devices. It provided iPhone-style scrolling in Firefox several years before the iPhone was even released. Most of the important features of this addon are now native to Firefox on modern tablet devices. If you're running one of these (e.g. Windows 8 touch-based device), this add-on is not useful for you.
***Grab and Drag is not compatible with an upcoming Firefox release and is being discontinued.***
If you are interested in taking over maintenance of this addon, you are welcome to fork it under the GPL/MPL license. All code is available within the addon itself.
For now, I can still be reached by email: grabanddrag at hotmathematician.com
