I know this question has been asked before but I am hoping for an update and maybe to learn something new to try...
I installed the latest Firefox (April 2021) on Ubuntu mate 64 bit.
I use my laptop Touchpad to move the cursor around on web pages. I go to the vertical scroll bar to scroll down the page... I left click on the scroll bar, hold the left button, then start dragging down on the Touchpad but.
Often, when I am on a web page that is long, the scroll bar will jump and skip all the way to the bottom of the screen even though I'm just dragging it down a little and slowly too. Sometimes the scroll bar keeps racing down the page even when I am not dragging the cursor down at all.
I don't notice this behavior in Chrome or Brave or in other Ubuntu mate user interface elements.
This question has been asked before e.g: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1314677
I tried solutions in that question such as going in to about:config and tried... general.smoothScroll.scrollbars.durationMaxMS (changed this from 150 to 75) general.smoothScroll.scrollbars.durationMinMS (changed this from 150 to 50)
I also downgraded to Firefox 82.0.3 but this has not solved the problem either.
Is this a known bug that is being worked on? What else can I try apart from switching back to Brave?
