Hi everyone! I have been facing this inconvenience since the first days of my life in Ubuntu, but never thought of any solution to it. Today, while reading a long page of article in Mozilla Firefox, I badly felt the necessity of scrolling down and up using my mouse's wheel. But it isn't activated by default. I've heard that there is some technique to get this working.

Will anybody be interested in helping out me? :)

Do in the navigation bar:


about:config
and say you'll be carefull.. :)

Now double click on general.AutoScroll and it will get value: true

and that's it.

Thank you. I've found a better way to do this.

Edit > Preference > Advanced > General (tab) > Use Autoscrolling. :D


That works. :) Thanks for your response, raafaell.
