When scrolling posts on Facebook, there are random jumps up to 6 new posts forward. It is necessary to scroll back and look for the last displayed post (photo, video, txt). It looks like firefox doesn't remember the last displayed position before updating the cache. It is very annoying because there is always a flicker.
This new version sucks.
Some people have tested this in older versions as far back as Firefox 78 and they still got the problem. So it seems that there is a more general incompatibility between Firefox and the updated technique Facebook scripts are using to autoload new content.
That said, I have not figured out how to trigger the problem on my news feed ("home page"). Does it occur more on other pages?
For reference, the two methods I use for scrolling are:
(I can't be bother to move the mouse all the way over to the scroll bar.)
It only happens on my computer and my Kindle, but not my Phone. I use a mouse wheel to scroll, and as soon as I move my cursor down to the bottom of a page after scrolling maybe a third of the way down the page, it will start reloading and reloading and reloading without stopping. I can't stop it by clicking on the scroll bar.
In v 103 an improvement, but it does not completely resolve the issue. Screen flickers, but the feed doesn't scroll the way it did. Sometimes it refocuses on the same topic, but often the feed jumps down a bit, maybe one to three items. BTW, I'm using the finger-scroll action on a magic mouse, FWIW. Don't know whether adjusting the speed of the mouse action would help.
Wow! That's kind of harsh. I've been a loyal FF user for years. I also subscribe to their VPN. Is this bug annoying? Yes! Am I going to jump ship because after all these years there's an incompatibility that needs to be resolved? No. I have faith that FF developers will get a handle on it.
I don't. It's been known now for well over a year and not addressed or even hinted at being addressed. I'm finally fed up enough to ditch FF for something else that I can find that shows it gets support to it's users.
I believe there have been two Firefox updates since I, and others reported what I call the random "Jump Scrolling" on Facebook. The problem remains. Mozilla Firefox has long been my default browser, but for the past couple weeks, I have opened Facebook in MS Edge. This needs to be fixed.
I haven't been on Facebook yet today, but late last night I was still having the problem. Some days it has been worse than others, and it became very bad last night. The farther down I scroll, the worse the issue becomes. I also am running FF 103.0.1.
