    Hi,

    I just bought the iPad Mini yesterday, and I've noticed some strange behaviour in Safari while scrolling.
    Here are two examples:

    1) Safari behaves normally when scrolling to the top of the page ("bouncing" it back), doesn't do the same when scrolling to the bottom:

    (watch the scrollbar)

    2) When scrolling in a zoomed-in page, Safari places the vertical scrollbar properly, but the horizontal scrollbar randomly in the middle of the page, disturbing reading:

    (watch the bottom scrollbar)

    It's a 16GB WiFi Only White iPad Mini running iOS 6.0.1.
    And BTW, I saw the exact same thing on one of the iPad minis in the Apple Store the other day...

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    You might want to try to factory reset your device.

    Probably just a bug that will get ironed out in time.

    I don't want to start a new thread and figured since this one has played out, I'll ask here.

    I see tabs on Safari browser when I open additional web pages. Is there a function to show these web pages in different window panes? If not, what browser can I use?

    It doesn't happen all the time but I've seen it happen. The horizontal scroll bar zoomed in.

    More specifically I've had times when I zoom in on something and the pic is like part of a puzzle piece of two or three blocks. Hard to explain but a refresh of the page gets rid of it

    Probably some weird ios 6-ipad mini firmware bug

    Private Browsing

    I was dealing with this same issue an my iPad Mini. Here's what I did yesterday and I haven't seen the problem since:

    1) Go to Settings >> Safari

    2) Turn on Private Browsing

    3) Clear Cookies & Data

    I cannot guarantee this will always solve the problem, but it has worked for me.

    Let me know if that works for anyone else :)
