If I go here,
or to many other pages of the above site, vertical scrolling is
strange, whether dragging the scrolling bar or using the mouse wheel.
Using the wheel as an example, and scrolling from top to bottom, the
right 2/3 or so of the screen scrolls upward ahead of the left 1/3,
with the left portion about one-half a line behind the right. Once
the right 2/3 stops scrolling, the left 1/3 catches up (in less than
a second) and everything looks okay. Same situation exists scrolling
the other way: the left 1/3 lags a fraction of a line for a fraction
of a second.
I haven't observed this behavior at other sites; it does not occur
using Internet Explorer.
Any idea about the cause of this odd annoyance? Are there internal
settings in SM I can change to correct it?
nope, I see nothing wrong. I get the same thing in SM 1.1.14 as I do
in opera, FF3, Safari, and IE7.
What happens in a test profile?
It happens here on my SeaMonkey as well.
It's not a profile thing, its a web page thing.
It most likely is caused by the .aspx application that made the page in
the first place. It is like the browser cannot render the whole page at
one instant, but renders only that which is shown in the open window on
The effect here is after the screen is fully displayed, note the large
blocks of text, then using the mouse and the vertical scroll handle
scroll down while watching the text render into new vertical positions
on the monitor.
The lines of text become 1/2 line offset as the page moves up.
That site is a disaster! The page the given url goes to:
Has Total HTTP Requests: 301
Total Size is: 1012882 bytes
and has 1040(!) Errors, 24 warning(s)
All that and the fact it is aspx makes it a nightmare and probably
cause the described effect when scrolling. It's wonder it works at all! ;)
