I'm so used to using my mouse's wheel, most modern mice have a wheel that also pushes left or right to do horizontal scrolling. Anywhere where mIRC has a horizontal scrollbar, this doesn't work, unless it's the treebar, then as long as theres no vertical scrollbar, mouse wheel will scroll left/right. but not mouse wheel left/right pushing...

This is mostly annoying in the scripts editor as you have to move your mouse to the horiz scrollbar and use it, instead of just being able to use your mouse's wheel.

EDIT:

Tested this on my laptop's touchpad too, as it has drivers for right edge and bottom edge dragging to perform mouse scrolling. vertical works, horizontal doesn't.

Tested this scrolling feature on several basic applications and browsers like notepad, and firefox, of which these applications handle both fine, so I assume it's not a driver issue.
