Public bug reported:


Iam not sure if i worded this correct., basically normal firefox
behaviour is to scroll down when you click and move the mouse towards
you. this does not happen in ubuntu, or stopped happening with this

This makes it extremely difficult or impossible rather to copy a section
of text from a webpage or any document, it does scroll up however..

Using ubuntu 12.04 development release with all updates.
