Description David Mosterd 2012-01-20 00:12:43 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. open a document of 20+ pages; making your scroll pane rather tiny
2. try to scroll down, up, loose focus, scroll some more 
3. wait for the scroll page to show unexpected results

(might be like 37187, but it won't open for reading atm)

Also, seems to be fixed in 3.5 RC1 :)

Current behavior:
No smooth scrolling, goes wrong way, slow

Expected behavior:
Smooth scrolling, grab/scroll going smooth

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1
Comment 1 David Mosterd 2012-01-20 05:18:58 UTC
After some more testing in 3.5 RC1, I have additional feedback:

The probleem seems to be resolved mostly; but scrolling sometimes seems to be stuck again in the same problem. Though, after loosing focus en trying again it will resume to work properly. So, very workable but some glitches seem to remain.

Thanks for bugreport
Please, verify if in last version of LibreOffice still reproducible
Comment 3 David Mosterd 2012-05-13 01:58:29 UTC

I can still reproduce it. I just don't seem to 'grap' the scrollbar and do
a fluent scrolling.
It's just weird scrolling, slow or just not following my mouse/ trackpad

Using the latest:

Build ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80

Os X 10.7.4
MBA 2011 edition

Need more info?
