Hello everybody !

When I am inside a new tab page, firefox options page or dial page, when I rotate the mousewheel I can no longer scroll between tabs. I use "tabScroller" plug.

I have got the last version of Firefox.

How to solve this issue ?

Thx you very much.

Many or most extensions (not "plugins") are disabled on the various about:... pages, such as about:newtab. Some extensions do provide hidden preferences to overcome that limitation. but there is no universal pref to change that. You need to check with the homepage or support page for each extension to learn what might be available to make a change in actions.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

(I think there is an about:config override for that? Or was I thinking of something else? Or might that only be in Nightly, kind of thing?)

overriding csp in firefox? only stupids will do because its not limited to about pages. did you ever noticed extensions not working on several mozilla pages, in special addons? anyhow it would override any page with csp enabled. and csp disabled has more sideeffects concerning security as you think of

See also, about:config -> toolkit.tabbox.switchByScrolling.
It might do what you want?
