Picture of Autoscroll indicator as seen in Firefox (but not Seamonkey)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:8.0.1) Gecko/20111121 Firefox/8.0.1 SeaMonkey/2.5
Build ID: 20111121045514

Steps to reproduce:

I clicked the mouse wheel.  I also checked the general.autoScroll setting was true.  I even changed it several times to false and back to true, and I also closed and restarted SeaMonkey.  I clicked the mouse wheel both within the browser display area and within the vertical scroll bar.

Actual results:

Autoscroll did not take effect.

Expected results:

Autoscroll should take effect as it does in Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer.  I checked the operation of general.autoScroll in Firefox and found it works as expected there:  I can disable and re-enable Autoscroll by changing the value of general.autoScroll to false and to true, respectively.

Can you check if this problem persists in safe-mode?
Help->Restart with Addons Disabled.

I restarted SeaMonkey with Add-ons Disabled, as requested, but still found that Autoscroll was not functinoal.

Could you try & see if autoScroll works in a new, clean Profile?
Tools | Switch Profile... | Manage Profiles... | Create Profile...

If that does not work, compare Plugins between SeaMonkey & FF.
Tools | Add-ons Manager -> Plugins

BTT - Better Touch Tool was the culprit.  It's a Mac OsX HID Utility designed for enhancing mouse and HID devices (including additional gesture support, etc)

Once BTT was terminated, the "general.autoscroll" on Firefox works like a charm, and on the "middle mouse button" like it is supposed to.

(all of my systems have BTT and that's why I was getting the behavior on all of my systems).

This report can be closed, and I hope it serves as helpful to other folks whom experience "general.autoscroll" problems (in the future).

Please close this support ticket...I cannot find a method on this page for closing the support ticket.
