Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

1. X-Mouse is the way to go. Focus-follows-mouse is awesome.

2. That's not windows behavior, that's application behavior, and you can change it in firefox. in about:config, change browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll to false.


Good to know, however I believe the default setting is the Microsoft way and Mozilla is just adhering to UI guidelines.

True. Too bad the Microsoft way isn't the Windows way.
