Inconsitent scrolling with mouse [closed]

When I want to scroll quickly through a document, I click and drag on the little scroll... ball/stick (not sure what it's called), which is in the scroll bar, and I can move it freely up and down until I find the page I want. But sometimes, when I try to drag the scroll ball/stick, it just jumps down a little bit, and I can't drag it anywhere at all.

Why is it doing that? How can I make it behave like a normal scroll bar? Is this some setting that I need to disable/enable, or is it perhaps a glitch or bug in the application itself?

I discovered that, when the scroll bar misbehaves that way, if I press the "home" button and make the document scroll all the way to the top, it will drag up and down normally again. So, there is a workaround, in case anyone else noticed this problem.

It is a glitch. If can figure out steps on how to reliably reproduce it, then it is worth reporting as a bug. And include as much information as possible.

Did you ever find a permanent solution to this issue? I am having this problem now. If I scroll to the side especially. I try to move over a little bit and it will go from column 'N' all the way up to double letters and last time up to 'CA', 'CB'...

Also, it says use commenting tool not answer box. Sorry, I cant find any way to make this a comment and not an answer.
