    No scroll in tab window (Firefox 3.0.3)

    Hi

    Since installing Firefox 3.0.3 the mouse wheel will not scroll a tab window, including this composition page.
    In a tab window it will scroll 1 pixel. if I click anywhere, it will scroll another pixel.
    It works OK in a pop-up window such as Tools>Add Ons.
    It works OK in my Bookmark bar drop down.
    It works OK in other programs including Thunderbird.
    Ctrl + wheel adjusts the window scale OK.
    I've tried different themes. All the same.
    Dragging the side bar scrolls the window OK.

    Frustrating, probably simple fix. Can anyone help me out here?

    Cheers
    Ken

    It doesn't seem to be a problem with Firefox 3.0.3 itself - I can scroll normally using the mouse wheel, and although there are some reports of other problems (scrolling causing the browser to go to the previous page in the browse history), I can't find any mention of your problem. Perhaps an add-on is interfering with mouse operation - see if running Firefox without add-ons solves the problem.

    Hi Hans

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I had played with the options in some suspect add-ons but hadn't disabled any.
    Turns out it was "Yet Another Smooth Scrolling". The home website has just released an update which I installed and the scrolling problem has disappeared.

    Cheers
