    G'day,

    More and more on this site I am experiencing issues with scrolling through a page. The front news page was traditionally the worst for this, where certainly I would never even try to scroll until the page is fully loaded, because I know it's just not worth trying until then (might move, might not, might jump a mile, or just crawl - end result - frustration).

    I have however also now noticed this phenomena in the forums pages too.

    Java/Flash? Ads?

    Any resolution for this problem?

    cheers

    Can you be specific on the hardware and browser version that you are seeing this in?

    It works well for me on Firefox 43 and 10.11 on a Retina MacBook. Video: http://cl.ly/2W0P1A1c3O3N

    I don't have a 10.9 machine to test on.

    1. Do you have any plugins? Can you disable them all and test?
    2. Can you try another browser?
    3. Can you upload a video?

    thanks

    The jumpiness i see is when writing a comment that fills the default window: trying to double click and drag through text jumps the cursor to the bottom of the window.

    Mac Pro Mid 2010
    OS 10.95
    Safari 9.0.3

    That's a separate Safari issue. Hopefully Apple will fix that.
