Description

16 years ago
In 2003032009 for OS/2 and other recent builds for OS/2, W32 & Linux in which
the keys aren't broken, the PgUp & PgDn keys scroll the dialog viewport
approximately 50% (screenshot upcoming). My eyes find it difficult to adjust to
PgDn/PgUp causing so little scroll trying to catch up when moving between channels.

In the browser, these keys move close to a full screen, moving about the last
two lines of ordinary text to the top of the viewport or vice versa. I think
scrolling less than 100% is a good thing, for both CZ and browser, making it
easy for the eyes to reattach.

But, 50% is not enough. I think either there should be a pref for number of
lines (or %) less than full screen to scroll, or the current behavior should be
changed to closely parallel the browser, moving the top or bottom 2, 3, or 4
lines to the other extreme.

The chatzilla 0.9.x branch has landed on the trunk and should be available in
tomorrow's nightly build.  If you believe this bug has not actually been fixed,
please repoen it.
