is there a way to get mastodon web UI to use browser provided scroll bars?

i effin HATE custom scrollbars. why do people fuck about with scrollbars?

also, while at it, why why why a scroll up animation? just jump to there. or at least don't steal my scrollbars so i can middle click to jump instantly...


@cadadr Mastodon web UI literally doesn't use custom scrollbars

@gargron @cadadr they don't look like my system ones...? what technique is used then?

@cwebber @cadadr It's just CSS. We don't even change the size or anything, just colors

@gargron I've never used the css scrollbar extension before so I didn't personally know that was an option, guessing @cadadr didn't either.

So, it looks like the *browser* replaces with a custom scrollbar rather than the css one.

@cwebber @cadadr If the browser renders the scrollbar, then by definition it isn't a custom one. Custom scrollbars refers to HTML elements that reimplement scrollbar functionality using JavaScript, something we make no use of in Mastodon.

@Gargron @cadadr I can confirm that middle-click to direct jump works and skips the animation in Firefox 89

@schmittlauch @Gargron i'm normally on qutebrowser 2.x, but I'm testing on FF78 ESR atm and they don't respond to middle click at all. Qutebrowser it behaves like PgDown. on FF I seem to have to left-click to scroll to click. what a mess...

sorry Eugen, seems to be a browser problem indeed...

guess I should give up and get a Mac...
