Created attachment 585124 [details] 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.
(In reply to Philip Chee from comment #1) > 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
PROBLEM SOLVED: 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.
