    I'm liking this addon; it lets you use the stylus to scroll around, and it is well balanced so that you can easily select text. That plus Mozilla's very speedy "Quantum" update release makes for quite an impressive tablet browsing experience.

    It's also worth reading Firefox's brag page about their new browser update. They apparently did a lot more than just plug holes, but re-built the whole thing from the ground up.

    Does it work in Fall Creators Update?

    I don't know. Somebody should try it and see. It's an easy enable/disable addon.

    Okay, installed Firefox, and installed the plug-in, which seems quite nice --- will try installing the Creator's update sometime this weekend and we'll have to see.

    I wasn't brave enough to try the Creator's Update. I haven't followed too closely, but I understand it broke some features for some people..?

    Yes. The big thing for me is exactly what this addresses --- in Edge, the stylus is used for scrolling, and to select text, one is supposed to press a button on the stylus --- guess no one involved in testing used a Staedtler Noris Digital Stylus.

    If it works so well, how does one select text in Edge after installing Fall Creators Update using a Staedtler Noris Digital Stylus?

    The Drag to Scroll add-on stopped working for me a couple of months back. Maybe after a FF update. Anyway, it's STILL not working, and it's driving me nuts.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/drag_scroll/

    I use the stylus all the time to scroll web pages, (or rather, I used to). Does anybody out there have a system which works for getting FF to accept stylus navigation input?

    Firefox now offers built-in touch support
    Change something in about:config
