    Middle Click on Sitepoint Article

    Hello all:

    Forgive me if this is common knowledge but I found it to be quite interesting and cool all at the same time. If you click the middle mouse button on a Sitepoint article to scroll the document the up/down arrow thing is a custom Sitepoint one, not the normal up/down.

    You have to be using Firefox, docquesting.

    It's been like that for quite a long time actually. There was a thread and a SP blog on how to do it a few months ago. Search for it.

    The custom autoscroll icon is possible due to a bug (or design flaw) in Firefox:

    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=242466
    (don't comment on the bug unless you have information to give)

    The idea came from Ian (Hixie) Hickson.
