I'm using ubuntu 13.10 on a laptop. Is it possible to make scrolling with touchpad behave the same way in firefox as it does in nautilus? If you don't know what I mean, it's the scrolling without these steps. Instead it seems to be pixel by pixel. Can anyone help me with this?

Firefox scrolls smoothly (even with a mouse wheel) for me. What's your hardware, PC model, etc? Maybe it's an add-on/extension causing problems? –  edwin Jan 25 at 17:35
I'm on a Dell Vostro 3750. I think it uses the ALPS driver. Exact Specs: Intel Core i5-2450M @ 4x2.5GhZ, 4GB RAM, onboard graphics card –  refl3x Jan 25 at 17:40
I only have 2 addons installed: Adblock Plus and Proxmate. It's not the "smooth scrolling" option that I want, it does that for me. What I'd like to have is touchscreen-like behaviour. The same way as scrolling with two fingers in Nautilus. –  refl3x Jan 25 at 17:42
