Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

Is there a setting for this? It doesn't for me.... It does in Firefox, but not Konqueror, Dolphin, Kword or Arora... not Shif + Click, Nor CTRL or ALT + Click... I haven't tried anything else, and it's time for work.

You are correct.

In Firefox on KDE 4.3, shift-left-click, ctrl-left-click or middle click in the scroll bar margin = "jump" to that place proportionally.

In Dolphin or gwenview or other native KDE applications, shift and ctrl have no effect on clicks in the scroll bar margin. Middle-click alone works to "jump" to a place proportionally, while all left clicks (either with or without shift or ctrl) implement page up or page down.

For consistent behaviour, then, between GTK+ applications and native (Qt) applications under KDE4, use middle-click in the scroll-bar margin in order to jump.
