In Firefox, I do not want the scroll bar button to got to the position
where I clicked, if I clicked in the scroll bar (outside its button).
The old behaviour, that still exists in the Thunderbird I use, is that
such click would simply have the effect of a pagedown or pageup,
depending on the relative position of the scroll button.

I noticed that changed a while ago. On Linux it's a setting in your
window manager. Here in xfce - and I assume in gnome and derivatives - I
can change it by setting up a file:

gtk-primary-button-warps-slider = false

That affects both Firefox and T'bird for me - and everything else AFAIK.

Presumably KDE has an equivalent setting.


The problem is caused by GTK 3, and can be cured by creating or
editing a file


with contents

gtk-primary-button-warps-slider = false

A restart of each GTK application is needed, though. But it worked fine.
Thank you!

Forgot to say: only software that uses GTK 3 is affected by this setting.
