User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031208
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031208

If I use the mouse wheel with no modifier key, it works as specified. If I use it with either [Ctrl] or [Alt], it works as expected. However, if I configure the preferences for the [Shift] + Mouse Wheel to scroll up/down by X lines or by page, it always scrolls down the page.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure preferences for Mouse Wheel to scroll page with [Shift] modifier
2. Open any web page/html document that is longer than 1 page
3. press and hold shift while using the mouse wheel

Actual Results:  
page only scrolls down

Expected Results:  
page should scroll up when mouse wheel is scrolled up

Brian, can you reproduce it with a current nightly build?

Yes, I just downloaded and installed v1.8a3 (20040731) and the problem exists in this latest version also.

Thanks!

Do you have any 3rd party Mozilla extensions or themes, plugins etc installed?
What kind of mouse are you using?

I'm using a GW2K 400VTX laptop with a Synaptics Touchpad. So the "wheel" is actually a rocker-type switch. I'm testing to see if the problem occurs with other apps. I'll post back here whatever the results are.

Ok, this bug is bogus... sorry!

I downloaded/installed the latest Synaptics driver and the problem magically disappeared.
