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,

Mr. Ahmad Mozilla Firefox Fellow customer

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

You should wait until most of the page is loaded because the page can change its size to fit the whole thing.

Well it seems that almost all pages including Facebook have this problem now, bad luck...

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

Browsing and page loading was significantly faster, rending the problem almost non-existent, but oh well, it was still there when loading :D

One of the other programs on your system is causing the problem. Look thru the list, and disable / shut down something to test this.
