Ever wanted to slow down the speed when using the mouse-wheel to scroll through a page? Here's an interesting tip that you might not know about. Just hold down the Alt key (or Cmd for Mac users) while using the mouse wheel to scroll the page, and Firefox will scroll at a nice smooth pace instead of flying down the page like normal. This could come in handy when you're trying to scan quickly through a long Wikipedia page, or just as a fun trick to show your friends.
