    Scrolling seems slow and jerky

    Is may be just me but scrolling up and down through posts in this forum seems slow and jerky compared to eight forums.

    If I press the arrow keys to scroll up and down then it scrolls a bit, pauses for a split second and then carries on a bit more before pausing again. Is this just me or is it some design to make it work better on phones or something?

    I tried different themes but it is the same.

  2. Scrolling in App or Start Menu is slow and lagging

    I too am having this issue.

    Scrolling in normal applications like Chrome IE is smooth and responsive.

    Scrolling in Microsoft Apps like Edge, Oneone, Weather etc is slow and jerky

  3. Microsoft office and One Note in windows phone 8 - selecting text

    Thanks for the response. Selecting the text isn't a problem in itself, but as soon as i have to scroll beyond the edge of the screen while selecting text it becomes jerky and slow unalike in WP7 when it was smooth and rapid. for selecting large parts of
    a document or a web page, for example, it is rather un-economical.

    It may be specific to your system. I don't have this problem. Try another browser.

    Only happens in IE 11. Chrome is fine.

    It seems to page up or down one page, pause, then go to the next page, pause when holding down the page up/down keys (one line and pause using the arrow keys).

    IE 11 is fine in seven and eight forums though which is strange.

    Edit - when I upgrade to 9 I'll see if it still happens *Smile

    IE11 seems to have a lot of little snags. I am glad I did hide it when it appeared on the scene.

    This is a different software then 7 and 8. I don't use IE11 myself. Opera is smooth *Biggrin

    My Operas are so damn slow that I use them only rarely - and it's the same in 7, 8.1 and Linux. In one linux distro it did not even install.
  10. On W8.0 I'm using 64 bit Opera 12.14. At some point Opera becomes a chromium clone. But I'm not sure which version is the change-over. Anyway it runs well. I tried one update and things fell off the shelf. So I reverted to 12.14.

    Edit: but I have to admit I'm using FF builds almost exclusively. Latest Pale Moon seems ok.

  11. I'm that used to using my mouse scroll wheel, even on this Notebook, much easier for me than the touchpad. I don't have problems with the mouse and I've just tried the arrow key and it scrolls but sort of jerks as if a line at a time, doesn't stop though just jerks continually down.

    I use IE11 on a Windows 8.1 Asus Notebook.

    Joan, I do the same. For our new Asus Transformer I got a Bluetooth mouse. Works better for me than the touchpad. The wife though prefers the touchpad.

    On my desktop I did not install IE11 after I heard of all the problems.

    I get the jerky scrolling in Firefox, but not in IE 11 (Desktop). IE 11(desktop) is very smooth and actually quite bit faster then Firefox though I use Firefox 90% of the time.
  14. I use chrome most of the time and it seems to be real smooth.

    You might want to checkout the firefox channels and test out the beta and aurora which are future versions of firefox they may or may not be smoother.

    I haven't been in this thread category to see new threads, so the delay.

    The scroll is choppy with IE11 on this forum software on this machine. No choppiness on 8F, although there the scroll will freeze every once and a while. If I refresh (F5) it works > Go figure.

    I'm not a "mouser". On any forum I'm looking to get to the bottom of the page so I simply push the End key, then arrow up a bit or Page Up once. That works for me.
