View Full Version : Disable/remove roll up/down option from Mozilla Firefox 57

I am running F27 and my Mozilla Firefox is up-to-date (57.0, 64-bit). I have an irritating issue with the roll up/down option on the Mozilla Firefox title bar (where the title of the current tab and Mozilla Firefox text is displayed). When I roll the scroll (middle) button on my mouse, the firefox browser suddenly disappears from the screen (it rolls down). Then I realize the mouse pointer is over the title bar. I don't need this functionality of the browser or the mouse. How can I disable or remove it?

I am also trying to find out how to undecorate the browser after it is decorated.
Thanks.

dunno,
what are you using? gnome of some flavor, LXDE, Plasma, KDE/openbox, openbox, dwm, ice, ....?

I think LXDE runs on openbox, maybe you can change the mouse binding?

I edited the ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml as follows (I basically commented out that section):

<!-- <mousebind button="Up" action="Click">
<action name="Shade"/>
<action name="FocusToBottom"/>
<action name="Unfocus"/>
<action name="Lower"/>
</mousebind>
<mousebind button="Down" action="Click">
<action name="Unshade"/>
<action name="Raise"/>
</mousebind> -->


do I need to restart my computer in order for the changes to take effect?

I think log out, log in, will do.
