    it already is 0.25 on FF90, are you sure something else didnt change or that it's now picking up on an OS mouse scroll setting

    but i find the defaults too slow or little for years in the first place, so i've had mousewheel.min_line_scroll_amount set to 44 for a while
    It still feels off, I'm not sure what the correct setting is. Hopefully someone else can chime in. It was also the reason I wasn't using Nightly.

    Firefox always does this. Nightly just always has some weird quirk, and then it makes it on stable when the versions update. Small potatoes but scrolling is important in a web browser.

      This is probably going to be the last ESR release that still has Compact mode (or the ability to disable proton), so you might want to install and pin it even if you don't generally use ESR.

        I had to go into about:config and change general.smoothScroll.currentVelocityWeighting from 0.25 to 0.1

        Can be lowered even more, but I think 0.1 is a good balance. Weird how they changed it on us.
        Yeah, I remember a few versions ago they changed general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS value to 50, while general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS was set to 200, which resulted in a nasty acceleration curve. changing the MinMS also to 200, returned the scrolling acceleration back to normal.

          Just saw this hilarious thread on HackerNews about versioning.

          Parody, fyi: ZeroVer (https://0ver.org)

            found it, set mousewheel.system_scroll_override.enabled to false, then it seems to be like it was before (which is too little for me, hence my 44 min line scroll amount)

            i dont think windows felt a change, or maybe the built in override happens to match windows

            well now that i look at my final settings, it looks like wheel is the same distance as arrow keys, so i guess the old default was not enough wheel (logically)

            maybe i'll look at the other options, it would be nice to increase the amount the faster the wheel spins like i had with the old addon

                Terrible choice for an ESR branch. First I had to figure out what was causing the crashes, and as a thank you for the effort, I got a horrible interface that could have been disabled before.

                  I join, also noticed the acceleration of scrolling at the transition.

                    Funny, Firefox 91 is also what made me switch to Vivaldi. It feels like ending an abusive relationship. Mozilla developers incompetence is only matched by their arrogance.

                    Firefox usage is only going down, and in a few years they'll be gone, and they have no one but themselves to blame.

                      I think people have been saying that for over 5 years now, and Firefox is still around.

                      Eventually it might come true, but it doesn't seem likely to be soon to me.
