Windows 7: Browsing quality with Firefox

Browsing quality with Firefox

Hi All
Thanks for helping me with my hard drive - fortunately I solved the problem!
But I have got another thing to consider - it is Firefox scrolling performance.
I normaly use Chrome but as I used to use Firefox few years ago I just wanted to go back to it. So... installed it, started to browse. Found scrolling terrible glitchy. Before I bother you guys I did some research about. There is no much info on this: I tried to uninstall all addons, switch on and off smooth scrolling etc. and nothing worked.
I really want to utilize the browser but this glitch makes me thinking bad about it.
Is there any way to fix it?
Thanks!

Try to disable Hardware acceleration to see if that changes anything:

Open Firefox> Tools> Options> Advanced> General

Untick Use hardware acceleration when available

Bummer, there was apparently a change in the way FF renders and many are complaining. The smooth scrolling is what most suggest as you saw. I also see mention of Flash having some effect. A Guy

I don't use FF in Windows. But I noticed that it is very slow in Ubuntu where I now use Chrome which is a lot better.

So it looks like FF users will have to wait for the fix. Hopefully will come out soon and for the time being will stick to Chrome then. Thanks for the reply guys.

Try installing your mouse's software, if you haven't done so already.
Making adjustments with that software, may solve the problem.
