    Nov 1, 2010, 9:49 AM - TDH scrolling and gallery #1

    I've been away from TDH for a while and now the site is a bit different... When I scroll, its really choppy. What can I do to fix this on my end?

    Also, do I need to register another account to upload to the gallery? I tried my user sn and it didnt allow me to log in.

    Any help is much appreciated.


    Thanks,

    Shawn

    Regarding the choppy scrolling, what's your OS version and web browser/version?

    The forums have a background that's a fixed position, i.e. doesn't scroll with the rest of the page. Safari and Firefox seem to have some scrolling performance issues with fixed backgrounds.

    Firefox/Win764... Does it with IE also... This is the only site that I've ever seen do that.

    I'm not sure how comfortable you are working with Greasemonkey scripts, but you can disable the fixed position for backgrounds per-site like this:

    Code:
    // ==UserScript==
    // @name           Scrolling Background Fix
    // @namespace      thedentedhelmet
    // @description    Sets background position to scroll
    // @include        http://*.thedentedhelmet.com/*
    // ==/UserScript==
    
    GM_addStyle("html, body { background-attachment: scroll !important; }");
    Which cleared up the choppy scrolling for me (huge difference), or you can disable it globally in Firefox by adding the following line to C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Prof iles\whatever.default\chrome\userContent.css

    Code:
    html, body { background-attachment: scroll !important; }
    Standard disclaimers apply, try at your own risk, etc.

    is the fixed-position background an issue due to graphics card / processor / some other system resource?

    wacky. i sort of figured that it would be a good system since you were hooked up to a 46" tv.

    i'm running chrome on a 2.53 ghz core2 duo macbook pro with a geforce 9400m and everything is smooth as can be. i've also got a win7 64 bit laptop at work, so i'll try it out there, see if i have the same issue.

    Yeah, its probably something simple... Like a check box in the browser options or something. I'll mess around and see if I can figure it out.

    Tried the second option... It didn't work...

    So this is super old, but just in case anyone cares, I switched to Chrome and the scroll problem is gone. Must have been something in the old FF.
