How do I enable autoscroll in brave for Linux (redux)?

This was brought up previously in:

but it was never answered. So how would I enable autoscroll in Linux?

Can you give a little more info on the autoscroll. Not really sure if its the same as clicking the mouse wheel that activates the scroll on pages?

Yes, autoscroll/middle-click-scroll, I meant the same.

It’s probably relevant that autoscroll is not available in Chromium on Linux, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if it’s not available in Brave on Linux, as I read that Brave is based on Chromium.

There is a Chromium extension that brings this functionality to Chromium on Linux: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/autoscroll/occjjkgifpmdgodlplnacmkejpdionan

Would be better for Brave to include it built-in, as Firefox does (Firefox requires an easy change in settings to enable the feature).

Can someone please comment on this issue? Is this a feature in development? Is this a bug? Is this feature purposely left out of the Linux version?

I wasn’t aware of the extension. There’s already an issue logged for this https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/959. For now you can use the extension as a workaround till there is native support for it. I’ll add a +1 on your behalf in the issue

Closing the thread for now. Please open a new one if you run into anything else
