Does it happen on random websites or is it only on the same few? I sometimes get that if I scroll down a page that has not finished loading. Usually adverts that are slower to load and then the page seems to jump up and down as they load. It happens a lot on my Galaxy tab more than on pc.

Just for elimination, if a PC, try a different mouse. If laptop try an external mouse.

thanks for the replies,it happens on any old website,it seems to be indescriminate.i know what you mean with the adverts loading,its a similar problem,but it just keeps bouncing no matter if the page is loaded or how long i wait.ill try a mouse when i can lay my hands on one,thanks again for your ideas,james
