Content Scroll with Open Context Menu

Unread postby CraigPD » Thu, 20 Sep 2018, 14:29

ui.menu.allow_content_scroll config switch implemented in 28.1.0 doesn't seem to have any effect in Linux (Xubuntu 16.04.5). Works as noted in Win7. Confirmation?

It's a windows-only option to revert a Windows-only behavior change in Mozilla code.

Thanks for the clarification. Too many OS nuances to keep track. :crazy:

No, there is none -- but if enough people want this as an enhancement on linux, then it can be made a feature request.
