When visiting the URL, can not scroll the page until the download has finished.

Disabling Java/Javascript seemed to solve. But it seems there is Javascript code loading a Flash. Now I don't know what solved: turning off Javascript or not having the Flash it loads...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Try to scroll the page (either with mouse or keyboard)

Actual Results:  
One can not scroll the page until it has finished completely and it takes a long time (at least to me).

Expected Results:  
Disable Javascript and repeat to see.

Maybe related to #315083 ...

Please test with the current release version of firefox (Firefox and see if you still experience the same issue.

Yes, I still experience it. There is another way to reproduce it:

- open url in main tab
- open new tab
- open url in new tab
- reload url in new tab

Maybe it's a focus problem... I tried the same site on Linux and it's not displayed properly *. The scroll is ok, but sometimes I have to click the white area on the right so I can use the mouse wheel.

* an old problem: it seems flash animations are bigger than they should and white space around them is overriding text; I can see the text at a glance before the animations show up and override it.

Felipe, if you reopen the bug, please give exact URLs involved and version of plugin

closing WFM
