This behavior is unnecessarily inconvenient for the user: If scrolling resumed, the user could continue paging down by simply dragging the mouse further down. With the current behavior, to continue once, the user has to: - release the mouse button - make sure the mouse cursor is still in the scrollbar - press the mouse button again To resume continue additional times, the user has to repeat the above steps multiple times, instead of simply dragging down a bit, stopping, and dragging some more. I can't check right now what some Linux program and UI toolkits to, but Windows (XP) scrollbars resume paging down if you move the mouse cursor after the slider hits the mouse cursor. Related bug reports: - bug 71458 is very similar, but deals with dragging before the slider reaches the original mouse click position. - bug 64866 wants paging not to stop at the mouse cursor in the first place - bug 64866 comment 22 agrees with this bug report: In all scrollbars i've seen besides mozilla that _do_ stop at the cursor position, they continue paging if you subsequently move the mouse further along the scrollbar in the direction in which you are scrolling. Mozilla fails to do so. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Actually, this is the same behavior I was talking about in bug 71458. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 153946 ***
