User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041006 Firefox/0.10.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041006 Firefox/0.10.1 Using autoscroll (the centre or other mouse button) to scroll in pages is firstly, allot slower and jerkier than any other browser, especially compared to using the sidebar. This has been mentioned before. More specifically, using autoscroll sends the CPU usage upto 100% within seconds on every computer I've used Firefox on. It slows the whole computer right down, takes CPU away from other programs and makes Firefox especially, jerky and un smooth/professional feeling. IE and any other browser does not do this, they use 10% CPU and navigate as smoothly and efficienty as the sidebar. This is a very serious common browsing usage problem that I hear many people experiencing, and find many more users who did not realise with the problem, until I made them do the 3 point test below, showing them how bad it is, and how IE/Opera responds far far better, or rather...as it should do - normally. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. CTRL>ALT>DELETE -> Performance - minimise to tray 2. Scroll around web pages using the middle or other mouse button 3. Watch the green level on the taskbar (CPU usage/performance) rise drastically. Actual Results: Slow, jerky navigation, program slows down, lose where you are on the page, other programs slow right down. Expected Results: Smooth scrolling as with the sidebar, and any other browser. THIS MUST BE FIXED. RIDICULOUSLY COMMON USAGE PROBLEM.
