On pages that are too long like bug 360493, 
it is a pain * * a** to scroll by using mouse and hitting scrollbar track.
(I know we can slide the scroll box, but that is not my first choice)


Can we have an acceleration factor for scrolling.
ie, if user hold mouse button down on scroll bar for more than 1 sec, the scrolling should be faster/accelerated.

What part of the scroll bar are you clicking-and-holding on?  The little buttons that scroll by one line if you click them?  An empty part of the scrollbar elevator, which scrolls by a page at a time if you just click once?

Ans ---> An empty part of the scrollbar elevator, 

I used the MS terminology...

== Remarks ==
The TRACK is the element of a scroll bar on which the scroll box can slide either up and down or left and right. The scroll box is the square box within a scroll bar that can be moved either up and down or left and right on a track to change the position of the content on the screen.
