OS X uses the rubber band effect to show users that they’ve scrolled to the end of a window’s content.
In the past (Lion) the terminal command that follows would disable this effect:
defaults write -g NSScrollViewRubberbanding -int 0
I've tried using Onyx and Tinker Tools to disable this and they do not work. The above terminal command doesn't work either.
Can this scrolling behavior be suppressed or eliminated on 10.9 Mavericks?
