Havent tested on 1.5.4 but doesn't work on 1.6a3b4 for me. Also, it causes problems in text fields and disables selecting text. Did it work properly for you in the alpha?

i don't test extensions in alpha. alpha is alpha..obviously there could be many issues preventing an extension to work not related to the extension itself in an alpha build.

it works in 1.5.4 and 1.1.4 and that's what matters, when 1.6 is released officially then the extension could be tested and if it doesn;t work then(unlikely) one can be made for that specific version.

the disabling of selected text is a natural result of js event listener for the mouse, it overrides and there's no way around it..even in the xul firefox extension it acts the same way, you can no longer select text and the firefox user who asked for the feature is probably aware of that... it becomes a matter of priorities for the laptop/touchpad user..select text or scroll, it's their choice and there's the option to disable the grab in edit?configuration when they need to select text.

i just tested with 1.6, it doesn't work.. no idea why, the js injected shouldn't make any difference in gecko1.9.. however it is injected cause the mouse eventlistener overrides but no scroll happens..have to wait till 1.6 is stable

With my 1.5.4 it does not work. Nothing happens, and when I tried to move, pic on page gets burned in the backround and vanishes when I stop moving.

i will wait for v1.6. grinning smiley

did you try to click and hold the left mouse button..then move the mouse up or down while pressing the left button down. in a proper extension the cursor should change to look like a hand similar to the firefox extension or adobe acrobat to indicate move-ready..but couldn't do it, too complicated js

Yes. No hand was visible. I tried it offline but this should not matter.

yes..offline doesn't matter, i even tested with default readme local homepage and it worked. the cursor does not change.. that's the problem there's no indication that you can grab by cursor change like in the firefox extension or adobe acrobat..you just have press the left button and hold it down while scrolling. it might not work if global js is blocked.. i'm not sure though, i might try a different js because this one doesn't work with 1.6 but not sure because it's alpha or gecko 1.9 doesn't like it but i'll search online for a ready-made js or something like a bookmarklet... my js is very limited.

Hi, disrupted,

GnD temporarily disables the feature on DoubleClick, if I remember well.

But, please, disrupted, you should NOT work hard on this - it IS bound to break some features of our Gestures, which I, personally, cherish more. As I found out about autoscroll since, I can well live without it.

I'm just reminiscing that "ease and elegance", not expecting to get it on top of the ease and elegance of our Gestures.

i didn't know it disabled gestures because i don't use them. i removed gran n scroll from kmext, thanks soren. the file is still available for download if anyone who doesn't use gestures and really needs it because of laptop touchpad etc but is no longer listed on kmext because of those conflicts

This extension let you scroll with left mouse button; it turns the cursor into a scroller (disrupted was faster than me ;-))

menu entry: page context > Scroll by dragging

To turn it off execute it again.

panzer, this works with K-M 1.5.4.

this works much better i couldn't do the cursor change in my primitive js and yours scrolls much smoother as well.. i think activating/deactivating per choice is better as this will prevent the gestures conflict

i renamed it as grab n scroll(to be similar to the firefox extension people will be looking for, i hope that's alright

uploaded to kmext under enhancements
thank you matt

That's great. Grab 'n scroll should also work with K-M 1.6 but I didn't tested it yet.

The one who deserves respect is disrupted. He made this extension from scratch (not to mention his numerous previous contributions). I just clean here.

If you move one page ahead on forum, it shuts down and you have to enable it again. But otherwise, great!
