Hello,

I've just installed a new hard drive in my wifes laptop. I did a fresh windows install last night. This morning, I installed firefox, but she says the scrolling(she scrolls with arrow keys) is too choppy and not smooth enough for her to read while scrolling. It has the appearance of the screen quickly refreshing either up or down depending on the scroll direction. It wasn't like that before, and its not like it on my firefox. Is there anything i can do? Is this a firefox issue or a graphics issue?

thanks for any help you can offer.

In Firefox 2.0.0.6, at "Tools, Options..., Advanced, General (tab)" there is a section called "Browsing". In that section are two checkboxes for scrolling: "Use autoscrolling" and "Use smooth scrolling". Check the settings there and see if adjusting them makes a difference.
