Autoscrolling while selecting is awkward
I've been trying to use seamonkey for bugzilla work, and one of the major problems I'm having is that attempting to scroll while selecting text is awkward. It seems to only recognize the mouse being out of the clipping area in the X direction, not in the Y direction. Also, it seems to require that you continue to wave the mouse back and forth to get scrolling behavior. I'd expect it to allow you to keep the mouse stationary and scroll automatically.
I think this is just a reflection of the mouse auto-scrolling code being only partially implemented. Kin, if you have other bugs that cover this, dup this one, otherwise use it as a feature placeholder.
Accepting bug. Marking M11. I am currently working on getting autoscrolling working. I'm not exactly sure how phil is getting things to autoscroll since autoscrolling really isn't implemented yet. In any case part of the autoscrolling feature will use timers that will fire off and scroll the view when the mouse isn't moving.
Changing milestone of all Selection Scrolling bugs to M12.
