    Unhappy Slow Scrolling Firefox(and everything else) Have tried many a tutorial.

    Hi there,

    I am at my wits end with this one. My scroll speed in firefox (and other browsers like Opera and stock Chrome) is very slow and does not change when I alter the settings in-browser.

    mousewheel.withnokey.numlines;10
    mousewheel.withnokey.sysnumlines;false

    Is there anything else I can do to change this? It has not worked right since I installed Ubuntu this time around.

    System:
    12.04.1 64bit (fully patched as of Jan 1st 2013
    AMD Radeon 6770 with latest AMD beta drivers (Steam beta)
    8GB RipJaw RAM
    HDDs everywhere


    Thank you for reading!

    Have you disabled smooth scrolling? I find that feature really reduces my browser performance.

    Things have changed since version 17.0. You won't be able to customize scroll speed by changing the outdated prefs anymore. More information here:

    I use the ad-on " SmoothWheel " in Firefox 18, and I set it to 1/2 page step .......
