Anyone know if there's a place to request certain add ons? On the off chance it's here, or someone sees this and knows the answer...

I'm hoping to find a way to change the behavior of my scroll-wheel side-click. (IE... the scroll wheel does 4 things. Rolls, clicks down, and clicks left and right).

Right now, the behavior of the side-click is to scroll the page horizontally (which isn't very useful). I'd like to change the behavior so that side-clicking shuffles through tabs. (the same way that ctrl+tab/ctrl+pgdn/pgup does).

I understand this will probably involve editing my about:config, which I have no problem with. I just don't know what/where to edit.

If anyone knows the answer and is willing to share and/or create a quick add-on that can do this, I would greatly greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Not sure if you can do this with tabs.

Mousewheel.*

These fall into two groups: vertical and horizontal scrolling. The general form is:

* mousewheel.(modifier key).(type)
* mousewheel.horizscroll.(modifier key).(type)

Modifier key is one of: withaltkey, withcontrolkey, withmetakey, withnokey, or withshiftkey

Type is then one of:

action
integer value that determines the type of action:

* 0 - Scroll document by a number of lines (given by the numlines property)
* 1 - Scroll document by one page
* 2 - Move back/forward in history
* 3 - Make text larger/smaller
* 4 - Scroll document by a number of pixels (given by the numlines property)

Yea, I saw that one in the config entry. But I don't know enough about the inner workings of firefox to know how to configure it. I'm guessing there should be a way to add another variable option, and make it "shuffle tabs" or however you set each value to an action.

You cannot just add a new Preference if there is no back-end code for the Preference to toggle.

Thank You!
I was guessing. I Really like the option '4'...
no-modifire x factor = 60 (.75 of a line)
shift x factor = 10 (.10 of a line)(used to use shift for horizontal scroll)
winkey x factor = 1600 (basically a page)
