Windows 7: Save As problem

Save As problem

I use SAVE AS from Firefox to save a lot of articles to read later.

The Save As window's left panel - which shows folders - has been doing something very strange.

When I start to select the folder I want to target for the save operation, as I'm doing this, the display pops back to display the location it was pointing to when the window originally opened.

Example: If I've got 100 folders names 1, 2, ....99. 100; and I open SAVE AS and folder 70 is highlighted, if I scroll down to select folder 88, while I'm doing this, the display will pop back to displaying folder 70. This happens (I think) even if I have selected the new folder.

Anyone know how to stop this or is it a known bug or am I missing something?????

WIN7 Ultimate 64bit

I use a firefox add-on called "scrapbook"
It captures individual
and will even download a whole website if you tell it to inc script/sound/voice/movie/etc in one click

You can also organise scrapbooks' data to go straight into your own created folders - its highly organisable too

You can export all your 'captured' scrapbook data to external drives or backup the data with a free program called mozbackup

Linux Lite 2.8 x64 (full-featured, fast, rock-solid)

Is it possible you're dragging the mouse and the window interprets it as a gesture?

I also agree with neo that there are better ways to do this. I use the Evernote extension in Chrome.
