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?!

Why the hell would clicking above or below the blob take you to that location? If you want to do that, just drag the blob there and enjoy the benefit of being able to see where you are, live, in the document.

So you'd basically take away ability to move up and down exactly one page with the mouse, to replicate functionality that is already in the scroll bar? Makes no sense at all. You are just wrong here Thom.
