Scrolling is jerky, not smooth

    When I go to some websites and attempt to scroll up or down, the page moves only click by click, not smoothly. For example, if I click the scroll bar 5 times, the page will jump a short distance 5 times in sequence. How can I return to smooooooth scrolling?

    Has the website finished loading when this happens?

    What browser?
    Is it all sites, certain sites, or completely random (the same site works fine one time and not the next)?
    To add on to YellerPuma's post, if the site actually finishes loading first, does it reload itself? I've seen this on lots of sites with videos, flash, and other obnoxious components.

    If you're using Firefox you might want to check...

    Tools > Options... > Advanced > General tab > Use smooth scrolling

    I've noticed in Firefox that sites with lots of CSS, Flash, and weird backgrounds tend to slow down scrolling a lot (where it gets all jerky). :)
