    When I 2 finger scroll slowly down to ready threads a lot of the time it gives me this jerky or jumpy scrolling where it jumps back up or down rapidly. Does anyone know why this is? Is there a preference to change this or make it less likely. MY scrolling speed is on the highest speed.
    I mentioned safari because it is the new beta version, could this be why, some sort of bug?

    Have you waited until the whole page has loaded before scrolling?

    yes, I have. It is not a jumpy thing that occurs when your page is not loaded and it is loading up pictures or anything... probably should of clarified that. Sounded pretty stupid I am sure.

    This is i when the page is fully loaded and just scrolling up or down. It jumps back and fourth the opposite way if I am scrolling slow, when I say slow I Just mean a typical scroll, not flying down to the bottom of the page.

    Anyone know what the problem could be.?

    Keep your other fingers/palm/thumb from bumping the pad?

    Also pressure on the underside of the trackpad can screw it up, so make sure your battery is not swelling.
