The wheel on my mouse now acts differently to previously and I can't find a fix in Options/Browsing. What happens is that, instead of scrolling in a controlled way up or down the page it jumps a screenful at a time.

It only happens in Firefox; is normal anywhere else, so not a problem with the mouse.

What brand of mouse and are you using proprietary software to run it?

Filter on 'scroll'.
Are any of those prefs not at their defaults?
