Writer page moves around when highlighter is selected

I often highlight a lot in documents. When I move the cursor up or down after I’ve highlighted text, often the page will scroll quickly, jumping to a place where the text I’m reading isn’t. Its annoying as hell! Why does it do that!? And how do I stop it!? This has been happening fo years now. Why anyone would be so demented as to develop a document system like this is utterly beyond me. Why are developers so clueless?

Why one would be so demented to not file a bug report for something “happening fo years now”? Why are some people so clueless?
