Weird and laggy scrolling on SOME sites

Description of the issue: On some sites (like, actually), scrolling using mouse wheel behave strangely - it scrolls just a little, then after I stop using mouse wheel - it jumps to the end where scrolling should end. If you scroll longer, the jump will happen only after you stop using mouse wheel, so the “jump” can be long.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. go to affected site (like or
  2. start using mouse wheel

Expected result:
Scrolling should be consistent

Brave Version( check About Brave): [
Versión 1.22.70 Chromium: 89.0.4389.105 (Build oficial) (64 bits), official repo for Fedora.

Additional Information:
My video showing the issue:
What I do: I use mouse wheel four times, then a short pause. The difference in scrolling on and Wikipedia, for example, is night and day.
According to (closed) posts like this one: Some web pages hangs briefly while start to scrolling, this is not a Linux-only issue. I’m also using desktop - AMD Ryzen 5 1600, Radeon RX 580. Disabling hardware acceleration does not change this behaviour. Scrolling using a scrollbar works completely fine and as it should.

Okay, give it 24-48hrs. A fix is on its way.


I am unable to recreate the above fault. My desktop, my phone, tablet, I run brave on all devices and never run into this issue nore can I recreate it on the listed links. When using my phone and tablet I use a blue tooth mouse and a wired mouse on my desktop.
