Steps to reproduce:

1. Drag a link over a bookmark folder, with enough items to make the up and down scroll arrows apear, to open the folder.
2. Hover over the bottom arrow to scroll down.

Actual results:

The view jumped down to the bottom of the folder in a splitsecond.

Expected results:

It should scroll down at normal speed.

Is this only a problem for this specific case, or do all menus now scroll way too fast (regardless of whether you're dragging anything)?

Seems to only be happening when dragging links down bookmark folders.

Too late to fix in 59. We can still take a patch in Nightly.

If Bookmarks toolbar is overflowed(i.e, chevron is in Bookmarks toolbar),
When dragover "scrollbutton-down" button at bottom, Contents of Bookmarks Toolbar are shifted to the left. 
So, some items of Contents of Bookmarks are unable to access anymore.

Your bunch of patch cause the ui regression, can you please look into this asap?

no longer able to access the leftmost bookmark on the Bookmarks toolbar :(
Marking fix-optional for 64. We could still take a patch in 65.
Happy to take a patch in nightly; if it seems low risk enough please feel free to request uplift to 65 beta.

Scrolling down also does this rappid to the bottom when moving a item allready in the folder from the top downwards

The fast scroll seems to be fixed. However now the shifting of the bookmark bar to the left happens multiple times.
