This happens to me when I am using my mouse scroll wheel to scroll up a thread, rather than using the onscreen drag thing. I hope that’s clear. Anyway, after scrolling through some small number of screens’ worth of posts, the thing will skip upwards a few posts, and I have to scroll back and find where I was and start from there.
It doesn’t seem to happen when I’m scrolling down. It doesn’t require any particular kind of content in a post for it to happen (such as a big visual link) – at least not so far as I can tell. That was my first thought, so after that I was trying to see when it happened, but I could not detect a pattern. This is the only site where I get this effect.
It’s been happening for a few weeks, I guess. I finally got PO’d enough at it to report it here. Does this happen to anyone else?
Finally, please don’t get off on a tangent about why I do this kind of scrolling. I do it, and I should be able to do it without it causing a problem. Thank you.
