sticky mouse when scrolling Firefox

Hi all, when scrolling with the mouse in Firefox browser(all updates)it is forever sticking/jumpy. When I try it in Microsoft Edge no problem. Anyone else have this problem?

Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration? Click on the three bars in the top right-hand corner, options, advanced, uncheck the box re hardware acceleration if it is ticked.

difarn,have tried that, with no success.

Back to the drawing board then - did you try re-booting after you did it?

Just a thought have you tried enabling "use smooth scrolling" - three bars top right, options, advanced.

I have disabled hardware acceleration, re-enabled "use smooth scrolling" and restarted. It seems a bit better, will see how it goes before closing the post. thank you.
