Whenever I am browsing the web or using a website that I want to either save a file or open a file the Explorer window that opens will autoscroll when I click in the side bar. How do I get that to stop so clicking the side bar only pages down or up?

Would you please take a look at this :

In case this doesn't work for you, as you're on Windows 8.1 : maybe you could post this question on the official Microsoft support forum using this link .....

This fix doesn't seem to have anything to do with Firefox. The issue I have only occurs when I use the Firefox browser. It doesn't do it when I am using other browsers like IE or Chrome. It also doesn't do it if I am browser file folders with Windows Explorer alone.
