Tip of the YEAR for Fedora and Red Hat/CentOS users
I’m calling this the tip of the year because it’s easy to do and dramatically improves the Web-browsing experience in Firefox for users of Fedora, Red Hat and CentOS. I wish I had figured it out years ago because it’s a simple way to increase your scrolling speed in the browser.
I asked an open question in this blog yesterday regarding why scrolling in Firefox is so much slower in Fedora than in Ubuntu, and reader Dirk Meijer wrote in that it’s due to a user-settable parameter in Firefox:
Is this firefox?
you may want to go to Preferences -> Advanced and uncheck “smooth scrolling”
Sure enough, I went into Edit – Preferences – Advanced, then clicked the General tab.
