Scrolling In Firefox Is Horribly Slow on CentOs 5 and Fedora 10 December 17, 2010Posted by Tournas Dimitrios in Linux.
Is scrolling vertically on web pages in your Firefox horribly slow?
I encountered this issue recently on Fedora 10 and CentOs 5.2 . Initially, I suspected the binary NVIDIA driver. But I was wrong. I found a simple solution.
Disable smooth scrolling in the Firefox preferences.
- On the Firefox window click Edit
- Click Preferences
- Click Advanced tab
- Click Use Smooth Scrolling to uncheck the checkbox
- Click Close
If you want an even better experience then go to. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5846/ and install that extension. Fast and smooth. I just make sure to go into preferences and disable the bounce back.
