Firefox: Set Mouse Autoscroll, Linux
“AutoScroll” lets you middle-click on a empty area to pan-scroll in any direction by moving mouse.
In Firefox Linux, it's not turned on by default.
To turn on autoscroll:
- In the URL bar, type
about:config, press Enter.
- In the search box, type “autoscroll”.
- Double click to toggle
Make Middle Click EasyThe middle click is usually the mouse wheel, which is difficult to press.
You can make it easier by:
- Swap middle and right button. [see Linux: How to Swap Mouse Buttons] [see Windows: How to swap Mouse Buttons: Right-Click, Middle-Click]
- Buy a mouse with lots buttons, assign one to middle click.
For buying a multi-button mouse, see Mouse Reviews
