I seem to be having the same scrolling difficulty mentioned in Broken 10k tools flag page? and Stackoverflow Scrolling Problem (Video Inside), this time on the profile page.

When viewing any of the lists under the various tabs other than "summary", if there's more than a window full of content, the scroll bar "fights" being scrolled further than about halfway. If I manage to get it to the bottom of the page, it will re-scroll itself up to the top. It's acting as if it is reloading some content below -- and indeed there's a little notification continually popping up in the browser's status bar that something has "Finished loading" -- and constantly resizing the page.

UPDATE: In addition, items with disclosure triangles, such as individual reputation changes or edits, will not display; they open very briefly and immediately re-close.

This was happening with a WebKit browser, OmniWeb 5.11 (v622.15) and Safari 5.0.1 (6533.17.8), on Mac OS X 10.6.8, and continued after I updated to OS X 10.7.3 with Safari v5.1.3. I don't see it with Chrome or Firefox.

  • I can't repro on Win7 Safari 5.1.2; I'll get my mac out tomorrow and check this. – Jarrod Dixon Feb 15 '12 at 5:20
  • Thanks Jarrod. There was another Meta question today meta.stackexchange.com/questions/122375/… about the same problem and a comment was made there too about no-repro on Windows. I'm willing to concede that I may just need to run an update. – jscs Feb 15 '12 at 5:22

Unfortunately, I have Safari 5.1.2 on my OS X version 10.7.2, so I can't test with your setup.

Fortunately (for the poor dev that would have had to fix this :), I can't reproduce the behavior.

  • Although, I just encountered a bug of my own when posting this answer where the page wouldn't properly load, so looks like there's be work after all. – Jarrod Dixon Feb 16 '12 at 4:41
  • Okay, thanks for looking anyways. – jscs Feb 16 '12 at 20:16

I've just noticed that at some point this was repaired. I've been working around it so long that I have no idea when, or why, or how, but I no longer have the problem I described. It could be due to whatever change was made to resolve the similar problem reported in Continuous refreshing of pages, although that was quite a while ago.
