Description

18 years ago
I have Netscape 4.x configured via my .Xdefaults so that wheel-mouse-up/down
means move up/down by several lines, ctrl-wheel-up/down means move up/down by a
screenful, and meta-wheel-up/down means move forward/back in the page history.
Under Mozilla, modifiers are ignored, and they all end up meaning move up/down
several lines (which is better than nothing, of course).

Seth has offered to help with this.  Thanks!

bryner did the work, and I just made a few tweaks, and checked it in.

he has a final tomorrow at U of I, and yet he finds time to hack mozilla.

how cool is that?

you can configure the mouse wheel under Preferences | Advanced | Mouse Wheel

right now, the back end doesn't listen to the prefs, but that's a bug for
bryner.

re-assign to him so he can fix the back end.

Marking M13 and changing to Assigned.  This is progressing fairly well.

I just checked in the code to support this.  The mousewheel prefs pane should
now be working.  I'll mark this Fixed once I get some feedback on it.
