scrollbars on MATE: click to scroll

Here’s one for us old-fogies that don’t like the new fandangled behavior of scrollbars, moving to where you click instead of scrolling (drives me nuts when scrolling through posts).

For GTK do the following:

  • Create ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini
  • add the following content
    gtk-primary-button-warps-slider = false


For Firefox itself do this:

  • go to about:config
  • right-click and select New of type Integer
  • use ui.scrollToClick as name and enter value 0
