User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:37.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/37.0 Iceweasel/37.0.1
Build ID: 20150404020439

Steps to reproduce:

Open a website higher than the screen. Middle-click onto the scrollbar.


Actual results:

Nothing.


Expected results:

The scroll position should be set to where I clicked.

This is on Debian testing.

This worked fine with Firefox up to 35. It stopped working in FF 36. It also seems to depend on my GTK theme: With the Adwaita theme, I get the described behavior. With the Oxygen GTK theme, scrolling works.

Hi, thanks for your report !
I confirm this bug on Linux 64bits with up-to-date Nightly.

I tested on Gnome 3.14 and Plasma 5 without different behavior, middle-click on scrollbar has no effect.
