    Can anyone tell me how to setup auto-scrolling (smooth and controllable,like it is in Opera7) in Crazy Browser, and in Internet Explorer6?

    The auto-scrolling in IE is very jerky and uncontrollable (enabling smooth scolling seems to make absolutely no difference). Opera's auto-scrolling, on the other hand, is a comparative joy to use.

    I presume I will have to edit some .ini file?
    Windows98se is my OS.

    Many thanks for any info,

    PcB

    Gotrootdude,

    Thanks for your help, but I'm afraid that you've misunderstood, or else I have not been clear.
    What I'm after is to set up a browser (in this case Crazy Browser, which has no auto-scrolling facility) with a (smooth) auto-scroller like Opera7 has.
    This is activated by clicking the mouse-wheel. This will produce an double arrow with a dot in between, and which allows you to scroll up or down, or sideways, using mouse movements.
    This facility is available in Internet Explorer (but it is crude in comparison with Opera's-and I would like to be able to improve this also) and many other text programs.

    Cheers,

    Pcb

    Well, Yul,

    Please, credit me with some intelligence..obviously I have - an Intellimouse Pro.

    The function works in Opera and Internet Explorer, but not Crazy Browser. This uses the IE engine to render pages, so I don't know why auto-scrolling is not available.

    There must be a way to set it up, probably by editing the existing "browser.ini" file.

    However, I don't know what to put in there..does anybody?

    Thanks,
    PcB.

    Oh, I didn't misunderstand. I have an intellimouse as well, but I though you must'ave meant something else, since autoscrolling works fine with my intellimouse. Did you install the intellipoint software that came with the mouse? Did you click the little mouse icon in your system tray and set up the features for the mouse?

    gotrootdude,

    Yes, of course I have set up the software correctly, and it works in Internet Explorer, but, as I said jerkily, and too sensitively, unlike in Opera.
    It does not work at all in Crazy Browser, which uses the IE "engine".

    I would like to know if it is possible to get it to function in Crazy Browser, the programmers of which are not keen on being contacted.

    There is possibly a way of editing the .ini file, but I haven't a clue what to do.

    Pcb.
