# Windows – My firefox scrolling is jerky and very slow – how can I fix this

firefoxwindows xp

Whenever I scroll down, the browser movement is very jerky and slow. It is pretty much unusable.

However, scrolling in a div with overflow: auto (like the related questions div above the question input textarea) scrolls fine.

I am using Windows XP freshly installed with Firefox 3.5.1

Anyone have any solutions?
