Lousy scrolling

The pages of this forum (only) don't scroll smoothly when scrolling with the button and the up/ down scrolling actions lag to the point of pain: ie if I hit the down button 5 times it almost literally takes 5 sec to stop this jerky page scrolling. This is ONLY on iRV2, nothing else.

I though there was a preference that delt with this but can't find it. Any ideas?

SVCJeff,
At great risk of being perceived as talking down to a man who almost certainly has a great deal more knowledge than me...

The partitioning scheme of your hard drive may be causing the page loading to buffer. I am probably working on one of the oldest laptops (7 years) on this board and I find the page scrolling to be consistently smooth and fluid. Once in awhile, I need to do a purge of temporary files with the scan disk utility. And occasionally the drive needs to be defragmented to keep things neat and tidy.

Hope that you are not offended by my suggestion that you may need to reallocate resources within your hard drive to achieve quicker response.
Take care,
Jim

Once the page is displayed in your browser typically all the scrolling is controlled by the browser on your computer. This and all websites scroll just fine for me most of the time. When they don't, I check to see what else is going on such as automatic downloads of updates from MS, email, virus scans, etc. I also periodically run software to clean out the windows registry, clean up the hard drive of old files and web pages, and defrag the disk. And not to be out done, all this on a 8 year old Dell laptop.

I did just migrate to the Firefox browser from IE8 which does have a smooth scrolling option. I think IE8 had this option as well, but not sure where.

I also have an old PC, so the pages take a while to load. If I get impatient, and try multiple times to scoll before the page is loaded, all of the commands eventually execute, and I get the cumulative results (which sounds like what happens when you hit the down button 5 times). I have found that the rotary wheel on the mouse gives better results than moving the cursor to the down button. As they say, "Your mileage may vary..."

The wheel on the mouse does the same thing. I just noticed that one "click" on the mouse wheel equals 9 verticle up or down on the iRV2 page. RV.net, eBay, even the web page off my router, as well as other applications move all move in one fluid movement. All except iRV2 :(

I had the same issue when the software conversion here was done in March 2009. I switched to FireFox & the scrolling became smooth again. Since then, though, I've gone back to IE8 because I have a newer laptop.

Give FireFox Mozilla a try for your browser.

I have never seen a scrolling issue with this web site. Try defraging your hard-drive.

Check your mouse setup, configuration, make sure you're not running out of swap, memory, etc.

Do you have scrolling issues with other web sites? Documents?

This started happening around the time of the new iRV website and software. Been running Firefox for years and one thing I'll try is turning smooth scroll OFF and see what happens. This is not a HD issue, and there is nothing downloading in the background unless all these ad's are dynamic. I find it curious of the thousands of sites I have been at with this PC, that this is the only one that I have the issue with. If I get some time I might try doing a YouTube post to see if anyone recognizes this gremlin.
