Linux Scroll Speed Fix

Download: Chrome web store package


Fixes the slow scroll speed in Chrome for Linux by emulating the Windows scroll speed when the extension detects Linux. When it detects Windows it will disable itself.

The extension also allows for custom scroll speed values in both Windows and Linux.

All settings are saved locally in the browser to not mess with syncing between different systems.


  • Automatic "similar-to-Windows" scroll speed in Linux.
  • Custom scroll speed settings
  • Settings are saved locally in the browser

  • Added Outlook 365 to exception list

Version 1.7.0

  • Fixed Youtube fullscreen scroll problems
  • Fixed images on Instagram not loading correctly when scrolling
  • Disabled scrolling plugin on Outlook until fix is found

Version 1.6.9

Version 1.6.6

  • Fixed overflow issue

Version 1.6.5

  • Clarified some text
  • Removed some debug stuff

Version 1.6.4

  • Reworked icon and background color
  • Reworked change in 1.6.3 to no cause issues with certain sites.

Version 1.6.3

  • Forces OverflowX to be visible. Some sites hides this and this disables scrolling.

  • Reworked protection against banners that change behaviour.

Version 1.6.1

  • Tab or tabs are now prompted to be refreshed if the plugin is disabled or enabled.
  • Updated icons to match the color theme.

Version 1.6.0

  • Refactored most of the code.
  • CSS Scroll smoothing toggling no longer needs refresh of window.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Version 1.5.3

  • Added indicator for if the extension is enabled or not
  • Changed so that the default behaviour in Windows (not custom) disables the extension.
  • Added tooltip for smooth scrolling.

Version 1.5.2

  • Reduced Chrome permissions needed
  • Minor bug fix

Version 1.5.1

  • iFrame security workaround

Version 1.5

  • Fixed banners messing with smooth scroll disable behavior


iFrames from other domains will use default scroll speed due to security (same-origin-policy). There is to my knowledge nothing to be done about this without some clever rewrite that is currently above my head.

CSS smooth scroll behavior is disabled by default. To my knowledge, the true smooth scrolling seen in Windows and MacOS will only be available with real hardware acceleration. Google stated that this won't be avaible in Chrome for Linux. The future will tell.

Please report bugs with description and address to the site where you encountered it.

Send bug report here:


Default scroll speed values:

Linux = 1.9

Windows = 1.0 (extension is disabled by default)

MacOS = 1.0 (This needs testing!)
