I use MATE on Fedora. At some point, the behavior of scrollbars on many applications has changed. When I click below a scrollbar, now the scrollbar jumps to where I clicked. Previously, it used to page down by one page (if I clicked anywhere below the current location of the scrollbar).
I preferred the old behavior. When on a very long page, the new behavior tends to make the scrollbar almost unusable: I can't control where I click precisely enough to control where the page jumps to.
Is there a way to regain the previous behavior? In other words, is there a way to make clicking on a scrollbar, below the current location of the scroll, to cause the window to go down by one page, rather than jumping to where I clicked?
This difference is most noticeable in Firefox, but is not limited solely to Firefox; it affects other applications, too.
