scrolling gets stuck at 120% / 160% / 175% / 230% (Internet Explorer)

04 Dec 2017, 03:05

I've been having a problem that's been annoying me for some time. However, the problem was very irregular so it was hard to reproduce the problem consistently. Now I believe I've finally got it more or less described.

- I use Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7.
- When I zoom in on forum pages, sometimes the scrolling gets stuck, that is WheelUp/WheelDown (mouse wheel), and up/down arrow keys.
- This seems to happen on certain specific percentages: 120% / 160% / 175% / 230%, but it doesn't *always* happen at those percentages.
- It appears that the window needs to be maximised for this to occur.
- It gets stuck when you increase the zoom e.g. from 115% to 120%, but it does not get stuck when you decrease the zoom e.g. from 125% to 120%.
- It happens on thread pages e.g. this page.

Note:
- You can do View, Toolbars, Status bar, to see what the zoom is.
- You can do Ctrl+WheelUp/WheelDown, to increase/decrease the zoom by 5%.

Thank you for reading.

It might only have anything to do with IE. Not many use it anymore that I know of. I use Brave, that has many funky things because of its immaturity, but zooming is smooth..
try it and see

There is nothing about this site to cause this and furthermore it sounds like a browser bug

I would be interested to know if other people:
- can recreate the problem (please specify the browser and OS)
- have had similar experiences with any websites
- had any ideas what might be causing problem

One thing that I thought might be a possibility is that some web element, when being resized, would cause a problem. But that's speculation, I don't have evidence for that.
