[clug] Stupid scroll bar!

I have a longstanding issue with scroll-bar behavior. What I like is that clicking
above or below the "bar" (the vertical line segment inside the scroll-bar showing the
extent that is visible) scroll a page-full up or down.

Some programs actually move the visible part to where I click. I hate this.

Thunderbird was doing this well and it still does,

Firefox was doing it well and it now does not. How do I make firefox return to the
nice way? Is there a global appearance setting to request this (meaning, is the SB
a feature of the program or of the window manager or such?). Is there a FF option?
