Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

When pressing the middle button on the mouse to autoscroll, autoscroll will stick on, and keep scrolling in the original direction, no matter where you move the mouse, or if you press any buttons. It usually lasts for 15 seconds or so before unsticking.

Paul (and anyone else affected),

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu and Firefox since that time.

We'd like to close this bug report due to its age and long period of inactivity so please let us know if you still see a problem which is related to the one that was reported. I've tested here using Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox 61 and can't replicate the issue.

If we do not hear from anyone this bug report will expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
