Firefox 3.5.12 goes out of control when I try to scroll down- Fedora 12


Usually but not always, when I try to scroll down by clicking in the vertical scroll bar - instead of going down approx 1 screen firefox slowly and jerkily and out of control goes all the way to the bottom of the page. If it is a long page I wait a long time.

The wheel on the mouse works fine, moving the vertical scroll handle with the mouse works fine, pushing the down arrow also works fine.

Alternatively - sometimes the vertical scroll works as I expect it to.

Is there a fix?

Thanks - Dick

Alterntively - when I use Opera it scrolls as I would expect.
