When scrolling the page http://home.houston.rr.com/verrett/gh/contact.htm with
the mousewheel, the page scrolls extremely slowly compared with IE 6. I rebooted
my computer, but got the same result. Although I have 396 meg of memory
installed, so it shouldn't matter, Windows 2K reports that Firefox is using
about 18K of memory when IE 6 uses about 6K for displaying the same page. Could
indicate a rendering problem with the page that is sucking up resources.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open page http://home.houston.rr.com/verrett/gh/contact.htm
2. Try to scroll the page with the mousewheel (Logitech MX 300 in my case)
3. Notice how SLOWLY and jerkily the scrolling occurs.

Actual Results:  
Scrolling is extremely slow.

Expected Results:  
Smooth, quick scrolling ("Use smooth scrolling" is turned on in "Tools"
"Options" "Advanced")

As I said earlier, when displaying the page
(http://home.houston.rr.com/verrett/gh/contact.htm) Firefox uses much more
memory than IE 6.

I also encountered this bug, although I'm not sure if it's completely a problem
with firefox.  I am also using a Logitech MX 300 mouse on an XP system.  I
didn't have any problems with scrolling until I installed the software that came
with it from Logitech: MouseWare 9.7 (for Windows).  This allows for programming
the mouse buttons and other added functionality.  

Anyway, when I installed MouseWare, the scrolling in firefox was slow on every
webpage that I tried, and when I uninstalled it the scrolling was fine again.  I
repeated installation/uninstallation with the same results.  With MouseWare
installed, scrolling was fine in most other programs, but I did notice that it
was also slow on 'Add/Remove Programs' in the Control Panel.

I have a feeling the MouseWare autoscroll and Firefox's autoscroll are
conflicting with each other, causing this problem.

My MouseWare scrolling is also very slow.

I think it is related to the scrolling settings for the mouse. In the mouse
driver  I have set it to Screen, but this doesn't seem to work in Firefox. Looks
like it scrolls only one line at a time :-(

I could override the scroll size in Firefox, but than it would become dependent
on  the window size

Hmz. I have found my old logitech mouse with scroll wheel, but cannot find the logitech mouseware software anymore on their website... Without this software the mouse wheel works fine
Going to close as INCO then.
