Facebook Scrolling Constantly in Firefox

2159 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Cookiegal
I've seen an odd issue happen of late in Firefox when looking at Facebook. It's more irksome than anything else, but I'd like to know if anyone else out there has seen it and resolved the issue.

I'm running V.103 of the 64-bit version and, as I scroll down the Facebook page, it suddenly starts scrolling uncontrollably and I have to click on the page to stop it and back-track. Things I've tried thus far:

  1. Changed Mouse properties in Control Panel so vertical scrolling is set to 3 lines at a time.
  2. Loaded Firefox in Safe Mode to exclude any Extensions interactions, but it still exhibited the same behaviour.
I want to concentrate on Firefox specifically, i.e. I'm not interested in using other browsers for the task. So, I'm just curious if anyone else has seen this behaviour. Thanks in advance (y)

It was one of those days when I forgot the KISS Principle. I just cleared the cache, rebooted the PC for good measure, and voila! No more issues 🤦‍♂️
Glad you got it sorted out Colin. :)

Thanks, Karen. It was a head-slap moment for me, and it definitely underscores the KISS Principle...heh
Yeah, been there, done that with the head slap. :D
