Does anyone have an on how to stop as soon as a is pressed? :think_bread:
Let's say I'm on a website, scroll down (2-finger- on ) , and while scrolling I close/switch the (both include pressing ). But as it's still scrolling -> in conjunction with scrolling the browser decided to zoom - at the current tab, as well as on the next tab...

This happens sufficiently often, to make me insane! :angry_trump:
Thus, I'm desperately looking for help :batman:

it's not an option to disable the while typing, as I sometimes actually need to ...

So, pressing should stop scrolling, but should still allow for as long as it's pressed (and probably stop again, when the is )...

@martin
Mmm, maybe activate proper touchpad gestures, like 2-finger pinch zoom?

@FreakyBytes
Mmh, that would just get me yet another way to ..
The browser would still zoom in +, wouldn't it? 🤔

@martin
Ah, yes. I think I misjudged your problem. You want ctrl+scroll to not zoom in the browser? How about custom keyboard hooks on system level? (Now I'm getting ridiculous - I know ;P)

@FreakyBytes
Yes, should be a -wide setting: stop scrolling on key stroke. seems like the proper place/tool but I can't find an for that case...

I know that in Firefox you can disable ctrl+scroll=zoom, I did that because it drives me insane and I use ctrl a lot to open new tabs.

@beto
for the hint! just disabled it by setting .with_control.action to 0 in :config :verified:
(0 means "Do nothing", 1 means "Scroll contents", 2 means "Go back or forward in the history", 3 means "Zoom in or out the contents")

This should do the trick for me, as I somehow only experience this problem in ..!? :firefox:

@FreakyBytes

@martin Probably not a satisfying solution, but when using the "autoscroll" function where you hold the middle mouse button and move your cursor to scroll, as soon as you release the middleclick, scrolling stops. It's very fast and responsive. If you middle click once to activate auto scroll instead of holding it, a click also stops it immediately I believe.
