    Forums Slow Scrolling

    Scrolling the forums, any part of them is jaggy and slow.

    It's the only website that is doing it. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Any ideas?

    I don't think it's browser related since it's the only site, but I am on Chrome 23.

    Re: Forums Slow Scrolling

    I have been seeing scrolling problems and page loading problems on this forum only for a while now. The slow page loading has been discussed at length at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2089783 but does not seem to have been solved for me, though is a bit better than it was when I started the thread.

    My biggest problem with scrolling (I use firefox 17.0.1 on Ubuntu 10.04) is after I click into a code tagged box and then go back to the normal page. To get any ability to scroll the whole page I then need to refresh the page with F5, not a major problem, but a bit of a nuisance, and something that did not happen before the update to the forum software that happened a while ago.

    The scrolling problem is not quite so bad on chromium, but still shows to some degree.

    When I first logged on this morning 07:30AM (UTC -8:00) there was a large packet lose at eth0.lutin.canonical.com 90%+, but it's gotten continually better as the day goes on, I'm not seeing any packet loss between my home and Canonical now.

    Yea I am not really having any speed/loading issues.

    It's just the scrolling, and is the same no matter what I do.

    Yea, as ajgreeny said, I am using Chrome 23.

    Which I am told I should use Chromium it's better supported, but when I looked at it in the Software Centre, it was an older version then what Chrome was.

    I'm running 13.04 (Raring) with Chromium (Version 22.0.1229.94 Built on Ubuntu 12.10, running on Ubuntu 13.04 (161065)), I am not seeing any problems scrolling. The only reason I suggested Firefox, as even though I don't use it very often, every once in a while when I do fire it up, it seems to stutter when viewing the forums.

    Well I installed Chromium to test it, and the forums are fine in Chromium.

    So that kinda sucks, because Chrome is the only one that supports Flash (which I still need), and don't feel like installing an extra flash onto the system.
