I use Firefox as my main internet browser. I'm occasionally coming across a problem where the internet page I'm viewing will suddenly start scrolling - all by itself, without me doing anything. For example, just a moment ago I was reading a webpage, not touching my mouse or keyboard and suddenly the page decided to scroll down to the bottom. I couldn't do anything to stop the scrolling. I have also noticed this on the odd occasion I have used Google maps. I will be searching a location, and when the map appears, the screen will suddenly start scrolling sideways across the map (to the left).Nothing I do stops the scrolling - I can move the scrollbar buttons, but they just go back to scrolling. All I can do is close the browser screen and start again. It doesn't happen every time, but often enough to be annoying. I have run a virus scan and checked everything I can think to check, but all seems fine. If anyone has any clues as to what the problem is, I'd be grateful to hear it. Is it a Firefox issue? Something else?Thanks.

Answer:Firefox browser automatically scrolling

I had that happen to me quite a few times. You have to wait for the page to completely load. If your scrolling down or have scrolled down before the page loads, when it does load, it will follow your command.

Hi,
 
I appear to be having trouble with my firefox browser.

Hi Friends,

I have a problem: Absence of both vertical and horizontal scroll bars. Thus, a text on the right goes beyond the right screen margin. So far I've not been able to find out how I can get those bars back. I tried a trick editing a ChronEdit: I inserted a following line in "user.js," user_pref("browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing", true); yet, nothing has changed. I would appreciate any & all suggestions.

Perpetually puzzled,

Answer:Firefox scrolling bar

I'd guess maybe it's a theme thing? If you are not using the default theme, switch to it and see if that sorts it out.

If it doesn't please tell us what version of Firefox and the theme you're using.

This seems to happen no matter the browser. As i am scrolling up or down the page it will stop or freeze for a split second then continue. I have gone into the scroll settings an unchecked things and tried deactivating addons to no avail in pale moon or firefox to no avail. What global thing could cause this? 3 gigs of ram on windows 7 with a good processor. Nothing in startup other than a few things, i keep tghe machine lean. But it IS my PC at work so maybe a network thing. I can't ask IT to help, as they won't bother with this kind of thing.

I also have another symtom that i think is due to the same problem. When typing the cursor will freeze and the last few letters i typed will not show up for several seconds, then they all are rendered quickly.

Hi,

Had no idea where to post this question, it kind of lands in a grey area, but seeing as my O/S is XP, thought this would be the most suitable place to start.

I have just performed a clean install, and am in the process of adding, all my AV, and program software. I have however noticed, that when I scroll with my mouse wheel, down the page, it kind of ripples rather than smoothly scrolling.

Have I maybe set my screen up at the wrong resolution? I didn't install any monitor drivers during the install, cos hey, the monitor is working after all. Could something be missing though?

It's not a major issue, but I would like to iron out all these little niggles early on to keep things working tip top.
Please feel free to suggest if this post would be better served in a browser area of the forum, or anywhere else for that matter.

Thankyou.

Okay... so I recently (at the recommendation of a friend) installed Opera to try it out.

Well I like the browser just fine so far, but there's one problem: The scrolling feature on my touchpad just DOES NOT WORK at all in Opera.

Why?


So far, the following has been suggested:

Someone said "update the driver."
Well may I ask then: FROM WHERE? WHAT DRIVER UPDATE?
The only driver in existence (which I don't even know where I got it...) is the one I have.
It's an Alps touchpad apparently, and I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.

The tab scrolling buttons that appear on the left and right of the screen in Firefox when you have a lot of tabs open is messing up for me. Before I just had to click them a few times and it would scroll through all the tabs, get to the end of the row on each side, and fade out. Now clicking the arrows hardly moves the tabs at all, even after clicking them multiple times. And they don't scroll to the end of the row either. Can anyone help? I didn't see anything on Google.

i have not installed anything new.
i currently have installed on my firefox 3.6.13

Hi,

I'm trying to disable tab scrolling on my Firefox version 2.0.0.6. I've done it before using this version but recently had to create a new profile and now in the new profile when I set browser.tabs.tabMinWidth to zero, it does not completely disable the tab scrolling. Scrolling still starts to happen at about 25+ tabs open. I'm using the default theme in Firefox and have already tried uninstalling extensions to see if that was the issue...no luck. I am trying to avoid going the extension route, like Tab Mix Plus and the others...just wish the about:config modification would work as it is supposed to...and has, up until I created the new profile a few days ago.

Any ideas on how to fix this/what's causing it?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

I was running Mozilla Firefox version 3.6.17 when this problem began, so when version 4.0 was released I gathered the slightest ounce of hope that my problem may be fixed upon updating. Which it wasn't.
The issue I have is that when I am running more than one tab, I will begin to scroll down one of the tabs and for some unusual reason it will open into a new window, causing the page to refresh.

This is extremely annoying and in my opinion just defeats the whole purpose of running tabbed browsing.

If anyone has an idea how I could fix this, I would be very grateful!

After ignoring this while attempting a more urgent fix on my laptop, I now want to try to fix this.

Here's what happens. Firefox browses and navigates fine, not a problem. Only when scrolling either with arrow or mouse, the background and sometimes the taskbar/system tray flicker. It's like you can see what window is open behind the browser view.

I have tried using IE (not a fan...) and it didn't work so I uninstalled Firefox and attempted a reinstall only to find the problem remains.

I did a search and tried some troubleshooting like updating my mouse driver and changing Windows theme from Aero.

Any solutions to this?

Thanks in advance.

sometimes when a page is loading feels like it gets stuck for a half a second while scrolling, and that doesnt seem to happen on an XP machine i have. Am i the only one with that problem? it does not happen all the time but i def notice it.

Answer:firefox loading scrolling

If you have a slow internet connection, it can feel like that because while you're scrolling the page is putting new images into the screen which make the total size of the page larger, therefore even though you're scrolling down you end up going up instead of down.

Think about it this way:

Firefox sees your position as absolute.
I.E. If you're 3000 pixels down the page, even if the page gets longer you'll stay 3000 pixels down.
That means that if the page goes from 6000 pixels to 9000 pixels you'll end up going from 1/2 down the page to 1/3 down the page. When scrolling it happens in much smaller increments.

I've had a problem with the browsers I use hanging. It is most noticeable when I am using the scroll wheel on my mouse, scrolling down a page in an open window. It will hang for 1-3 seconds, as though a script is loading or something. At first I thought maybe it was a script or the page just waiting to finish loading, but I've let everything in the browser window finish loading and the problem just continues.

I thought at first it was a Firefox problem, so I tried IE8 and Google Chrome and the problem persists in those browsers as well.

There is no problem scrolling up, just down.

I've cleaned my system numerous times using Norton 360, Spybot S&D, CCleaner, PC Pitstop Optimize.

I've also thought maybe it was my mouse, so I downloaded new drivers and that solved nothing either.

It isn't causing any major issues, it is just a nuisance that I have been putting up with for a long time and have tried all I know to try to stop the problem with no luck. Now I'm enlisting the help of experts.

As a Windows Noob (been using 10 for months) there is one Mac feature I absolutely can't stand not having. Scroll bars in Windows do not offer a 'turbo' feature I like.

Suppose you're at the bottom of a page and you want to return to the top? In Windows you must move your pointer to the top of the scroll bar and lean. Or two finger scroll a few times to get back up there. In OS X -- if set up properly -- you simply 'click' once in the scroll bar where you want to go and BOOM you're there. One click.

Firefox offers a plugin that will allow you to do this at least in a browser. It's called SCROLL TO TOP.

Give it a try. It rules.

Answer:Scrolling Tip (and free Firefox plugin)

Hold Shift (I believe it is) then click on the scroll bar. I'm currently mobile not at my computer, but I do know that feature is in Windows. You can also use the Home key.

I installed Firefox 1.0.6 and since then scrolling results in 99% CPU usage for firefox.exe and it takes up to five seconds for it to actually start scrolling and when it does, it stutters severely. Also, scrolling through the Task Manager also uses 99% CPU. I have since uninstalled Firefox but the same thing happens in IE.

On my wife's laptop (Dell Inspiron 15R) I'm having problems with scrolling or selecting with the cursor keys. There is a delay of a couple seconds before the response. It makes selecting from lists nigh on impossible as you cannot move through the list item by item as a single key press elicits no response - you need to press and hold the key, and after the initial delay the key response rate is very fast.

The key response is immediate in all other programs, including Thunderbird. The problem was present in Firefox 5, and I have today updated to version 7.01 and it remains. There is no improvement with extensions disabled.

On my desktop (running version 7.01) there is no problem.

It seems logical to assume this is a Firefox problem as it seems to be only Firefox affected but Google searches just bring up advice relating to Caret browsing, which is disabled.

In a similar (but unrelated?) problem the enter key response is also reduced, but only on Facebook - it's as though the key sensitivity is reduced - the enter key works but you have to press it harder than normal. Again, it works completely normally on other sites and in other programs.

I don't want to suggest to her she abandons Firefox, but to be honest this makes it fundamentally broken so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

Anybody know how to make Firefox scroll more than one line at a time using the directional pad? IE goes like 3 or 4 lines at a time when you hit the down arrow, and Firefox only goes one. I've got the mouse set up, so that's no problem, and I've enabled smoothscrolling. I just want more lines per key hit. I also know about the space bar/page down thing, which is helpful. This is more like just a small annoyance that I'd like to fix.

Anybody?

Hiya. New user here, and, while I know horizontal scrolling has never worked in Firefox (or at least I've read as much on some sites I found searching for a solution to my particular problem), my vertical scrolling is, for the lack of a better word, wonky. It works fine in every other program, but when I try to scroll in Firefox, moving my finger a tiny bit does nothing, and past the threshold, it scrolls an entire page. Is there a way to change this? I've asked a few friends that own ThinkPads, but they said they'd never experienced anything of the sort.Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need to know any of my specs, please don't hesitate to ask.

Answer:Vertical scrolling problem in Firefox 3

Sorry, I don't have a solution for you, but what I do know is, in Firefox 2.x, there is a bug that causes firefox to crash sometimes when used with ThinkVantage Password Manager.  There has been a patch released for this.  (I can't remember where I found it, you'll have to do some searching)  Perhaps this is a related problem?

A minority of web pages cause scrolling in Firefox to slow to a crawl. Touchpad and arrow key control is very slow indeed; scrollbar dragging is slightly better but still much worse than that would normally be.It does not happen in any other browser. Most of the problem pages are fairly long with quite large HTML files, but not always: so there is no clear causal link between them. One problem site has a fixed background (which can cause this sort of problem for me, to a lesser extent), but hiding it with an entry in userContent.css hasn't improved things at all. Any ideas?

I wonder if anyone knows how to make auto-scrolling (particularly in browsers) smooth..ie. cut out the jerkiness.?

I have been using Opera for some time now, and it auto-scrolls just beautifully on my 98se. It makes browsing a real pleasure to be reading a page as it scrolls down slowly and silky smoothly.

I would like to be able to have the same degree of smoothness in Firebird(very jerky) and /or MyIE2 (less jerky, but still not usable to read while scrolling)
The reason for this is that I am now finding Opera so buggy, crashing so often that I want to get away from it, sadly I must say.

Any information on how to do this will be very gratefully received.

PcB.
 

Answer:how can I stop jerkiness in Browser auto-scrolling

If you are using smooth scrolling, the fix is to buy a faster processor. Smooth scrolling takes a lot of horsepower to so smoothly at any speed. I personally don't use smooth scrolling, I prefer to scroll by text rows, even with a fast processor.

Hi there, Im working with a Dell PC at work and my boss reformatted it yesterday. Since then the internet browser has a quite nausea inducing cascading/wave effect when you scroll up or down. Ive searched how to fix it and have tried to "smooth scroll" set it which hasnt made a difference regardless of whether it is ticked or not...Ive seen that sometimes its the video card but i would have thought that since the pc is reformatted that the original settings should mean that this doesnt happen? I could be very wrong... :DAny ideas?

Answer:Browser scrolling funnily..cascade effect

The problem us that you do not have the proper drivers for the video interface. You obtain these from the computer or video card manufacturer.Formatting a drive is a preliminary to a clean install of the OS. In such an install ALL data and settings on the partition are lost.

IE scrolls just fine (if anything, too quickly ...) so it's not the mouse or drivers (classic MS Wheel Mouse Optical USB). The most recent FF scrolls like 2 pixels with the mouse wheel. Anyone have an about:config hack that fixes this? I see there are many mousewheel settings. It's so useless that I have started using the scroll bar on web pages instead. I haven't found any definitive answer with web search, and I'm definitely not the only one. Maybe I'll find one that changes something. (And no, turning off smooth scroll does not fix the issue ...)

Hello all!

I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) on a new Sony Vaio laptop. I am having trouble with the scroll facility using the trackpad when using Fire Fox 3.5. Unlike Google Chrome, Opera and IE 8 the small 'scrolling icon' doesn't appear in Fire Fox. However I do have some functionality when scrolling but it is very intermittent. I can use Fire Fox ok using a standard USB mouse though.

I have updated all drivers from Symantics for the trackpad/mouse and searched many forums for a solution but have had no luck.

Is this is bug that will be fixed or a fluke? I absolutely love FireFox - it is the hands down best browser out there and don't want to switch to IE8, Chrome or Opera because they just aren't as good.

Many, many thanks.

The new Firefox update has screwed up the wheel scrolling. It either does not respond to or fails to captures the wheel scrolling after about 3 scrolls of the wheel. This happens with smooth scrolling enabled and disabled. Is anyone else experiencing this?

It certainly feels like a (completely retarded) feature to slow down the scrolling of the page to help you catch a better glimpse of the content as you scroll. Sorta of an integration/feature for the endlessly scrolling pages/ui paradigm.

I recently installed the latest version of Firefox. Upon using it, I found out that vertical scrolling using the mouse wheel does not work. It works in IE and any other program I use.

I have the latest drivers installed, and have had no problems with the mouse. I went into Firefox's Tools>Options>Advanced and switched the mouse options around a bit, but it still doesn't work.

It's getting very annoying and makes using Firefox nearly unbearable. I'd appreciate any help.

I have an eee pc with xp on it. I usually like using firefox but for some reason the touch pad (two finger scrolling) is horrible with it. The page barely moves at all. I tried opera and while the page scrolls, it goes too fast. Simply twitching my fingers a little can cause a whole page to go by (compounded by the eee pc's small vertical screen size).

I was wondering if there is a solution to either of these problems. Ive tried fiddling with the touchpad settings (elantech touchpad drivers) but they really dont help. Scrolling regular windows for file browsing is excellent so I was wondering if there's a setting in either of the browsers for this. I wont use IE btw.

I even got it right now when I tried to scroll down a tiny bit to this text box. I scroll all the time with the mouse wheel, probably around 90% of the time, and it's very frustrating when it actually doesn't do anything. I've had times where I've just sat there and scrolled for about an entire second, and the page just sits there. I never had this problem in XP, and it is not the mouse going bad, or the mouse wheel going bad. It doesn't matter if I "spin" the wheel as fast as I can, or just move it one groove down. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

It's a Logitech MX518, and I've installed all the drivers for it from the website.

The lag becomes very apparent if there is some sort of animation on the screen, particularly flash, however, even these small animations to the right (the smiles emoticons) seem to lag it, if that has anything to do with it.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
J

Hi,
 
I'm sorry if that's more like a support issue, I do realize it's a silly little problem, but I'm switching to Firefox (cuz I'm already sick of Google and Chrome) and this really bugs me.
 
When you're on a reasonably long page and you want to quickly scroll through it, you can either grab the scroll bar (I think it's called the "thumb") and move it around as you wish OR you can do it by clicking the negative space of the scroll bar (above and below the thumb).
And with the second option you can hold your left mouse button so that the page will scroll until you let go. But after switching to Firefox, I realized that as you are holding the LMB on the negative space, you cannot simultaneously move the cursor around so it would scroll towards the new cursor position.
You have to literally click above or below the thumb and NOT move your mouse at all for it to scroll to that point. When you're moving the cursor, it just stops.
 
Is that how FIrefox is and always was or is there some setting that can get rid of it? I know it's silly but it works like this everywhere, in every Windows folder, program etc it just how it's always worked, that's why I'm surprised it doesn't here.
 
I hope I described it well enough because it's a weird issue and I'm sure I'm not the first one to ask about this but I just don't know how to google this...

Update on problem:
Say I want to browse the "post your workstation" thread, and I get to it by clicking on a link to the thread under "Last Post". Of course, the thread opens with the page scrolled to the last post, because that's what you clicked on. So, you hit the Home key to scroll to the top of the thread, because you want to read the whole thing. The images are loading, and there's no problem, but as soon as the LAST image finishs loading, the page jumps to the very last post, which is annoying when you have to go back and find your place again. That's what's driving me insane.

So, is there any way that you guys know of to disable it? Thanks

--------------- Original Post --------------

You know how if you go to, say, the 2005 Post your Workstation thread, and while the images are loading, you scroll down the page to read posts / look at the pictures, and once the images are done loading, it automatically scrolls the page to the last picture posted on said page?

I find this really annoying, so is there any way to disable it? Did some googling, and all I could find was stuff on "autoscrolling", which isn't this... Thanks!

 When I two finger scroll on the touchpad through webpages on firefox sometimes i get a constant beeping noise. It is very prevalent on websites that load more content based on how far you scroll down, however if I scroll up for a bit the beeps starts again. The beeping is constant and occurs until i stop scrolling. I tried scrolling on the same webpages in chrome and the beeping never happens. I tried scrolling through firefox in safemode and the beeping still occurs. Also, the beeping occurs sometimes when I am at the bottom of a webpage and try to scroll down further even though there is nothing further to scroll down to. One finger scrolling using the side of the touchpad does not cause the issue and scrolling using the mouse and the scroll bar on the side of the webpage does not cause the issue either. It only happens when two finger scrolling. I have tried using process manager to isolate where the noise is coming from, but apparently the beep is not a .wav or .mp3 file so no path is displayed when the beep occurs. This issue just started after the last Windows 10 update. I have a feeling the issue lies in a newly installed Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav Driver that was automatically installed during the update. I tried rolling back the driver but when i do this windows just delets synaptic driver altogether. Anyone have a solution for this issue? Thanks.

Hi,

I am using Fasterfox and it has developed another problem. Will open another thread to discuss repeated problems but my current issue is;

For some reason the cursor keys no longer allow me to scroll up and down pages when I start a session. I can fix the problem by opening Tools>Options>Advanced and switching on or off whatever is set for Smooth scrolling. It doesnt seem to matter what it is currently set at but as long as I change the setting then my cursors keys start scrolling again.

However, when I close Firefox and open a new session once again I need to go through the above process to enable scrolling (regardless of how its set).

I realise that this is a trivial problem but it's still a nuisance and also when my browser starts playing up then I get worried about security issues and my system integrity.

Can anyone advise why this would suddenly start playing up? And some advice on how to fix it properly would be very welcome.

Many Thanks,
Alan

Answer:Another Firefox problem. Cursor keys scrolling not working

Hi

First and foremost, which version of Firefox are you using? Check in Help>About -- make sure to have the version 2.0.0.2 which is the latest and has fixes many flaws, bugs and security issues.

If that doesn't work or you're already updated, close any Firefox windows you have open and then open Firefox in Safe Mode through the Start Menu. See if its better there.

Also, does this happen on any site you're on or are there a few sites in particular?
Any more extensions/themes installed?

Greetings Honorable Geeks:major

As posted in recent weeks, had two destructive malware attacks which leveled me (Thank you TimW for helping me through) The one thing I noticed prior to the malware attacks - is a scrolling browser - so rapid difficult to even type - it is random- shuts down my emails as I type them, and close out any database I have open (work). It will shut down my emails as I type them. (actually just closed out this request for help).

Two weeks ago I finally got my system clean and reset up my system. All fine for a week - and now the rapid scrolling is starting again. I did observe a post in 2005 - that attributed this to a bad mouse - I can get a new mouse. Also the settings on my browser (pops up blocks) keeps turning the settings off. Yes I downloaded all I was suppose to. Have licensed copies of Avast and Mbam - showing no virus.

TimW (Hi TimW) that the Anti malware and anti virus did not protect emails/browser activity (I may have misunderstood). Is there any software I can download to run and or protect browser issues or threats? Thank you! Just trying to stay afloat Anyone else have this issue?

Hey guys,

Now I restarted my machine, but i notice that the screen resolution seems to be a little off from what it says in control panel. (it's supposed to be 1280x1204 but it looks more like 800x600) Also, whenever I shift something on my desktop, or scroll down in a browser, a line runs up or down the screen and then the view shifts. I'm going to run a virus scan later, but I was wondering if it may have to do with the video drivers I installed earlier?

After searching the forum, i have not been able to find any response from Lenovo as to how to correct this problem. Incidentally, my "occasional" vertical scrolling problem occurs in any browser,  IE7, Firefox3, Opera9 (at least those 3) as well as Windows applications with a vertical scroll bar like Windows Explorer. This only started to occur very randomly around 6 months ago.  But as of late it is occuring more often.The only work-aroundhttp://blog.jonschneider.com/2008/03/workaround-thinkpad-gets-into-always.html might indicate that it is a possible hardware problem.However, I have to say that I rarely use the laptop scrolling buttons and 99.9% of the time, latetly, I use a Logitech laser USB mouse for scrolling purposes. As another possible work-around (if you are using an external mouse) is to uncheck the enable virtual scrolling in the touchpad properties window. I certainly hope it is not a hardware problem, as the warranty on my T43 ran out a long time ago.btw, I am running Windows XP Pro XP3. Moderator Note; added system type to subject Message Edited by andyP on 07-27-2009 09:32 PM

a while ago my mom's laptop was stolen. because of that she's been using my computer. well, a little while after she did i think some kind of virus got onto the computer. the warning bells sounded when i began hearing these advertisements playing for different products when a browser wasn't even open. i tried shutting off the computer when this happened and the advertisements kept playing even at the shut down screen, so i had to force quit. after that i installed zonealarm. apparently hotshows.org was trying to connect to the computer but zonealarm blocked it. another ip was also attempting to establish a connection to the pc which zonealarm also blocked. ran an antivirus scan with zonealarm but it turned up nothing so i uninstalled it and went through a number of other scanners including kaspersky and bitdefender which also turned up nothing.

at this point we tried repairing windows with an old xp cd with service pack 1. unfortunately, it did both nothing, made the software on the computer outdated and since the activation key we had no longer worked we had a trial going! fortunately we managed to get it installed and activated again, but that wasn't the least of my worries. apparently this virus or whatever it is is actually blocking the internet connection. google chrome, opera and internet explorer all DO NOT work. opera, for example, says it "cannot connect to proxy server" and "access is denied". ie is especially a problem because i can't use mic...

I have FF 17. The mouse is freezing in facebook & I find the only escape to release the browser is reboot. The same FB page works fine in internet explorer.

Answer:FireFox - mouse & browser& browser freezes in Facebook page

Try CTRL+Alt+DELETE or ALT+F4 to turn the Browser off ... I have no idea why this is happening. Might be a bug in FF 17. Was it there in FF 16?

Have not been able to use internet explorer or firefox for a few months. The aol browser seems unaffected. What I mean by hijacked is that the browser will only browse for a second or two and then returns to the google search page. I am a terrific auto mechanic but I get lost with computer infections. I have the log files saved to my desktop as per the instructions in the guide. Do I post a log file here? Can someone help?

Answer:IE and firefox browser hijacked - aol browser ok

I was told by somebody here with VIP badges that I should not post here how to make Firefox run more smoothly in a Virtual Machine in Linux. It should be in a Linux forum. So I moved it there.

I am currently experiencing a problem that is driving me nuts. Whenever I go to a web page on Chrome, and reading it, the browser will suddenly jump (scroll) to the bottom of the page. It does this un-commanded. It does this without me touching either the mouse, nor the laptop surface. The laptop is a Lenovo Y580. It makes it almost impossible to read a webpage without using my mouse to go back to where I was reading. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your assistance.

Hi. I have a Dell Inspiron 14. 2Gb Memory Core2Duo.

I can;t scroll Sideways but I can going up and down.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Dell Touchpad not scrolling Sideways. But scrolling Up & Down

On both my Acer aspire one netbook (synaptics) and my Lenovo notebook (alps) I need to tab twice on the lower edge of the touchpad (to gain its attention?!?) and then it will scroll. Beyond that I believe you need to take a walk on the Dell support web site. There are number of 14xx models so you need to follow the steps there to find the freshest driver for your particular model. On both of mine the newest drivers have given scrolling as well as "pinching" to re-size pages, photos etc.

When I operate the scroll bar, instead of a smooth scroll down or up the page, the scrolling occurs in jerks, making the page appear to "ripple". I am using windows XP. In addition, when I watch DVDs the crarity is not so good. It has only just started happening. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Strange scrolling or wobbling scrolling

Does this happen to the entire screen or portions of the screen (like a horzontal line), or just with the scroll bars?
