The scroll bar stops moving with the cursor after the frist inch or so down the page, even though the cursor keeps moving as does the page itself.

This problem started about 4-5 days ago.

After i scroll down a bit on a longer page, the scroll bar is still near (not at) the top. The page is scrolling at that point based only on me continuing to move the cursor in the scroll bar vertical column - even though not in line with the actual scroll bar itself. Then when I put the cursor on the actual scroll bar the page jumps back up to near the top of the page.

Thanks for any help.

Are you using code in userContent.css or Stylish?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

Firefox Safe mode also disables the customizations in the userChrome.css and userContent.css files.
