I don't know of any benefit, it's just the way I've been using it for years,
and have found no drawback to having it set that way. You can always try it
unchecked, and if something isn't working the way you'd like it, then
recheck the box and see if it works better the way I have it.

Bill, why would autoscrolling be checked? I thought it would be
unchecked to prevent the screen moving while browsing? is there a
benefit to having it checked?

Hi, Cristóbal. The only one not to have checked is  Use hardware
acceleration when available Alt+Shift+r

Hello list,

I was poking around Firefox after reupgrading to V 60.0.1 and going
through the various settings to make sure everything is how I want it
and came across the below:

 Use hardware acceleration when available Alt+Shift+r

 Use autoscrolling Alt+Shift+a

 Use smooth scrolling Alt+Shift+m

So, since I rarely ever deal with these particular settings, I forgot
what is advised. Whether to check or uncheck these three options? On the
latest Jaws 2018 May update and it is much better than the first go
around with Firefox 60.

Can anyone give me a refresher and what these three settings actually do?

Thanks,

Cristóbal
