I don't know what causes this. I've disabled the flash player, and that solved the problem for a bit, but it's now scrolling up and down without my control. It's irritating as I can't read the pages for the scrolling.

Since the latest Firefox download, I'm having the occasional problem where a certain page will suddenly scroll to the bottom and all efforts to scroll back up prove unsuccessful. Sometimes this affects all pages across all tabs, sometimes only certain pages. Closing and re-opening the browser has no effect. The only way to get back to normal is to restart the computer. Is this a Firefox problem?

(Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language) Hello, it's been many months that I have a problem with automatic scrolling Firefox Maintain pressure on the mouse wheel can slide in all directions of the web page, very useful for long pages and also for very high resolution pictures.

Off for several release (from 40.0.0 I think but not certainty), scrolling stops and / or is extremely slow and choppy until the page is not fully charged. This is all the more painful if we wait for loading a heavy image on a slow site.

I tested with the Firefox Safe Mode and it changes nothing. Disable graphics acceleration nor solves this defect. Test a new blank profile ... Remove and reinstall Firefox ... Namely I met no automatic scrolling problem on Internet Explorer or Chrome.

As I visit large high resolution photo galleries, is often sucks having to wait finish loading before dragging on the page with the pressed wheel. I leave then your knowledge to help me determine the source of this defect.

On many pages (commercial), when I click a link to look at another page, clicking the "Go Back One Page" button results in the original page scrolling down a varying amount.

For example, I visit CNN.com. I then select an article I want to read. When reading is complete I press the "Back" button, which returns me to the original page, but also scrolls that original page, sometimes just a few lines, but also sometimes to the very bottom of the page.

This only happens on the newest (66.0) version of Firefox upgraded yesterday. It does not happen with other browsers. It does happen with Firefox started in safe mode. I also checked the carat (^) scroll in "Options" and this was not selected.

This also happens whether I use the Firefox Page Back Button, or the "Back" button on my mouse.

Thanks Doc

There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello,

How's it going, lads? :) I noticed a problem which I don't know if it existed earlier or not, but when I enter a big website, clicking the middle mouse button and trying to scroll while the page is loading is torture! I can only scroll normally after that spinning wheel stops.

(If you seem to not understand my description, just read the title again.) Seems like my question is almost empty, feel free to ask me for additional info.

Best regards,

I have been chatting on a couple of sites based on 123 Flash Chat software. During the last week, I have been unable to scroll in any direction while in these sites. All of the other functions in the rooms work fine. I completely nuked Flash Player and reinstalled it - the problem is still there. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?? It is really annoying to have to use the scroll bar instead of the mouse if I miss something.

I am on a Mac Pro running OS 10.10.2. Flash Player is up to date. Firefox is version 37.0.1. I am using the same extensions that I have always used - AdBlockPlus, Facebook Purity, Classic Theme Restorer, and FlashBlock (the chat sites are in the white list for this extension).

If anyone has any ideas, your input will be greatly appreciated.

P.S. One other problem is that when I try to use a keyboard shortcut when I am in one of the two chat windows to open a new window, it does nothing. If I go to another website window, the keyboard shortcut works just fine.

This is a problem connected with SCROLLING. There are three standard ways of scrolling , while surfing and looking through site pages: 1. Use the Mouse roller 2. Use the left click press on the mouse, simultaneously press and move the scroll bar 3. There are two Scroll bar junctions - one at top and other at base. The mouse left click button may be clicked - either in steps or on a continued click... to make the page move ... in steps or on a continuous movement.

The QUESTION here is: While we have this Last No.3 above facility in UBUNTU-Mate, such facility is not seen in UBUNTU, XUBUNTU, LUBUNTU, KUBUNTU etc. WHY?

Can we not have the same facility in the other OS too?

Uneven/inconsistent scrolling with mouse wheel

When I scroll using the mouse wheel in Firefox the pages don't move a persistent distance with each notch of the wheel - sometimes it's a few lines, then it's the entire length of the window, then a few lines, and then now and then the page will move in the opposite direction I'm scrolling. I tried disabling smooth scrolling which makes the pages bounce less, but it's still unpredictable whether it'll scroll a few lines or several paragraphs. The mouse is set to scroll 3 lines per notch and it works in every other program, just not in Firefox. I also still find that it tries to smooth scroll on some pages despite it being turned off. If I disable the notches in the wheel I can somewhat control the distance the page moves, but it's still bouncing. If I click the middle mouse button - which locks the mouse movement to the scroll bar, the page scrolls just like if I dragged the scroll bar elevator - smooth and exactly how much you'd expect (but a pita to use, not very accurate, and really bad for the wrist). Incidentally text boxes usually scroll correctly. It's just the web pages themselves that have issues.

This issue pops up every few versions of Firefox and then goes away with a later version, and I've yet to find a way to fix it myself - it just seems to go away eventually on its own - and it doesn't matter what I'm doing. It's even buggered in About:Config.

This time it came either with the Firefox 46 update or when I updated the video driver the other day. But it doesn't happen in any other program. Scrolling works perfectly normal in Thunderbird, Word, Windows Explorer, and anything else I've tried. Only Firefox is having issues.

I tried updating all the mouse related drivers, disabled smooth scrolling in the mouse driver, etc, but Firefox still acts weird. Also tried changing some suggested settings in about:config, but also makes no difference.

Ever since the last major update to Firefox a few weeks ago, I've been having issues when using buttons such as Home, End, Pg Up, Pg Down when scrolling through webpages.

If I press End, it should go to the bottom of the page, but it usually either scrolls down a small distance or does nothing at all. When I'm way down on a webpage, pressing Home should take you up to the top of the page. However, it only does this on a rare occasion. It usually either scrolls up further DOWN on the page, scrolls to just a bit lower than the top, or does nothing at all.

Page up and page down are similar as well. Pg down many times scrolls wayyyyyyy up or down and Pg up goes wayyyy up or down... or nothing at all.

Upon updating to FF 41.0.2, I was hoping the issue was fixed but alas, the issue remains and so I decided to post this. I HAVE tested on other browsers like Chrome and MS Edge and they utilize the buttons properly.

Any advice? Thanks.

Hello,

My scrolling experience is not as smooth as before on Firefox on Windows 10.

Previously had a perfect smooth scrolling capability, but now the scroll is more laggy. I don't have the issue with Microsoft Edge : completely smooth. I'm using a logitech mouse M390 with smooth scroll feature enabled.

I suspect something has changed in latest release of Firefox on Windows which impact the scrolling experience. Anyone has noticed the same behavior ?

Just reinstalled my laptop from scratch : same issue.

Thanks for your feedback ! Have a pleasant day !

Chase.com web site doesn't work well when I use Firefox (works fine with IE). I first log on to chase.com, then select "Show Activity" for my Sapphire credit card to look at recent transaction details. After I click in the "body" of the screen (i.e., not using the scroll/slider bar), when I then use the down-arrow button to try to scroll thru Transaction Details of my Chase Sapphire credit card account, when I release the down arrow key, the display always ends up at the very bottom, instead of stopping where I had positioned the cursor.

I'm using Firefox 41.0.1. I've submitted this complaint/fdbk several times thru Chase.com fdbk, but have seen ZERO response from Chase. Is there something I need to do in Firefox environment to resolve this nagging problem?
