    about half as often i'm wanting to exclude something so i can do a full screenshot. and much of the other times i'm zooming in to make things as large as possible.

    i'm getting smaller jumps, but still getting jumps, from the side slider.

    some web sites have removed the side scrollbar even though the page is quite long. or maybe i did it when i zoomed in to not see the ads on the right. the mouse roller and the up/down keys do scrolling ... with jumps. i don't know how much control javascript has on scrolling but i was able to create this years ago.

    It's not exactly one-pixel precision. And try that with a laptop trackpad and see how precise you get. Your face goes red with frustration, your body begins to shake and the precision problem just gets worse from that point on.

    Hmmm, never encountered this before. Curious.

    Getting back to the original idea from the OP, I still believe it's a brilliant feature request. I could certainly make use of it and having it as a key combination would give the power to those that would find it useful but those that have no reason for it would never have to acknowledge the key combination. I'd also suggest that those who don't understand the logic behind the idea are those that would probably just never use such a feature and would be part of the latter group I mentioned.

    So has anyone filed that Enhancement bug report @ https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/home ?

    Maybe you can find one already filed in this list https://mzl.la/2Gnjfjh

    I plug a mouse into every laptop I use. I hate trackpads. That said, I used to use a Netbook for browsing. I could only see half of a Facebook post at a time.

    my laptop has a flat mousepad (no trackball) but i turn it off because with it on my hands cause lots of text to be "randomly" highlighted all the time. my wireless mouse has 3 buttons (nice on Linux) and a roller.
