Linux Mint Choppy Scrolling

Posted

I just installed Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon and of course I’m using the FireFox version that was packaged with the distro. I setup my FF account, add-ones and all that good stuff, but the scrolling is choppy. I turned on “smooth scrolling”, yet it remains choppy. I then switched both scrolling items off, scrolling remains choppy.

So I am wondering if this issue is version based, Linux based, or hardware based. I can’t image it’s hardware based as my laptop has an i5 and 8GB of RAM; plus FF on Windows 10 (dual boot) is flawless.

Any guidance is appreciated, thanks!

The page content is choppy, even the FF settings/options pages are choppy, so it isn't specific to a "website". All programs/software, including FF, that are installed on Linux Mint open perfectly smooth.
