Firefox pauses when scrolling long distances
 
I've encountered a bit of a curiosity. Whenever I'm using my scroll wheel over longish postings, especially postings with largish code or quite fields, it will occasionally stop, requiring me to click on the current page before I can resume scrolling. It's almost as if focus has been stolen by another browser tab or window, although I have no other windows open. I first noticed it in XFCE and Blackbox, but it's most noticeable in KDE. I thought I found one other mention of this, but that posting is apparently about default 3rd button behavior. Any thoughts?

Just with firefox ?
 
Did you test wheel scrolling with another web browser ?

I have noticed it aswell, it occurs when the mouse goes over an iframe, or a <code> block, or any element that has scrolling enabled

Yes I have, it works fine with Konqueror and Netscape!

Looks as if there is some confusion as to which part of the window has the focus.

So it's an "undocumented feature," rather than a bug.:)
