Details

The mousewheel prefs panel currently refers to modifier keys which are PC-
specific (specifically, the Alt key). This needs to be changed (probably with
platform overlays, or different DTD entries) to use platform-specific names for
the modifier keys. On Mac, the modifier keys are Shift, Option (==alt) and
Control. There is also the Command key. Code-level changes may need to be made to
handle the command key modifier.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
What I'm currently planning to do (as dicussed with mcafee) is change to having
a select widget with a list of modifier keys, which will vary by platform, and
have that cause the correct set of prefs to be displayed.
Target Milestone: M14
Marking M14- it might be done before then though.  It's not a usability issue at
this point because mousewheel on Mac is nonfunctional because of other problems
(see bug 7347).  But, changing the pref layout would make the panel a lot
cleaner.
