Why use DragToScroll?

Dragging a link to the bottom of the page. How many times has this happened to you: You're at an Internet forum where the text box is at the bottom of the page. You want to quote someone else's text that is at the top of the page. You can choose to copy & paste it, but then that is too much work. And what if you already have something else on your clipboard? Well with this extension, now you can select the text you want to quote and then drag & drop it into the text box at the bottom of the page. As soon as the drag pointer reaches the edge of the window, the page will begin to scroll automatically depending on which edge you are pointing to. Then when the text box scrolls into view, simply drop the text into the text box.

Other Information:

This extension is a temporary fix for bug #41708.
