    I just was wondering if there's a way to get Wayfarer, or even the whole of Ambient to allow a left mouse button press that's then held-down (not a click'n'release) in the scroll bar area to trigger a continuous movement of the scroll bar to the top or bottom or to the position of where the mouse button has been pressed originates from, as it does in Windows and Mac OSX? It really irritates me that I have to keep clicking when it should be catered for, logically, in the Operating System. :-?

    I have an intermittent broadband issues at the moment, that my ISP is aware of, caused by the telephone company not connecting the circuitry correctly, that is in the process of being fixed, but Wayfarer is unable to complete a textual update in "Ticket" in their webpages for support as the page generates a JavaScript textual based input field that I can enter text into, but the "Save" button does not upload the text, it changes to a blue colour as I'd expect, but the text is never transferred/activated for transfer to their "Ticket" system. :-?

    I am able to transfer the data via my Windows system, which is what I am reluctantly having to do, but I'd much prefer to have Wayfarer be able to handle the data/text transfer rather than me have to boot-up my Windows based system. :-(

    The eBay right mouse context pop-up menu in the eBay member message system is still not working, that offers a message to be opened in another tabbed window with v2.8, which has worked OK in previous Wayfarer versions, so I hope that is going to fixed again soon. :-(

    I also thought as Wayfarer is becoming a more and more stable, and competent web-browser at handling most situations/other websites, will you be able to implement a drag'n'drop tab feature?

    I'm sure you know what I mean, but I'll describe it so that there's no confusion over what I mean. So, one tab in one part of the browser tabbed section can be left mouse clicked-on/left button held-down and then dragged to the left or right and placed where required instead of having to use the 'clunky' menu option of moving it just one place to the left/right at a time, so multiple times if you want to move it from one side to the other side if you have quite a few tabbed windows active?

    Also, compared to OWB when you right-click on a webpage link, you can choose to open a tab as the next/adjoining tab to the tabbed window, or use the middle-mouse button click to open it as whatever the default option is to open a link with such a click, usually for the same purpose (adjoining tab), which then opens when you choose that option, with Wayfarer currently it only opens the tab as the furthest right new tab in the Wayfarer tabbed section of the GUI. So, is it going to be possible/planned for to implement this functionality in Wayfarer in the near future?
