Clicking in the gutter and holding down the mouse button to scroll causes
Firefox to scroll too far.


1. Load a really long page (the page in this report is just the one I happened to 
   notice this bug on).
2. Place the mouse pointer over a point in the gutter that is far below the scroll 
3. Press and hold the left mouse button.

The page scrolls and the scroll thumb passes the mouse pointer.

The scroll thumb should stop with the mouse pointer over it. It should not go
past the pointer.

Does this happen every time you try to scroll? I'll download todays's update and
try it. Could you provide some more examples if possible?

It happens on every page with no matter where it is. It doesn't matter if it's
text/plain, text/html, or dynamic. No examples needed. Go to any page that is
long enough (4 or more screens long or so).

Can you please update to a recent version, create a fresh profile (see for more information), and test this again? If you still see this problem, please add a comment to this report and tell us your version and your operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Linux). If the problem does not happen anymore, please set the status of this report to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME. Also, the URL example does not work anymore nowadays. This needs a testcase. Thanks for your help!
