I’ve encountered an annoying issue lately.
When I scroll down, the dynamic loading works perfectly. As I scroll, the newer content gets added in a way that just feels like scrolling. It’s perfectly smooth.
But, when I scroll up, not only is there a jump every time, but sometimes it will even jump past a comment altogether. This makes the whole thing more difficult to use. Posts need to be able to load in without the viewport losing its place.
Most of the time, of course, I’m scrolling down. So I understand why that experience is prioritized. But there are definitely times where I’m scrolling up to read posts I’ve not seen before. For example, I get a notification about a reply, click to read that, and then scroll up to read what I missed since my last post.
Thus I would like you to look into seeing if there’s a way to fix this jank. I note that it may have something to do with the browser I use, so I’ll report I’m using Chrome 89 on Windows 10. I know Chrome has some automatic attempts to stop scrolling jank, which might be interfering.
