    sounds like a graphics card problem to me...

    complicated by the fact that the the javascript engine just plain
    chokes on the javascript delivered by some web sites..

    and, it is my experience that running Flash makes the scroll problems
    even worse

    unfortunately, at the present time Intel graphics doesn't have a
    really great driver and well...you can read up on that...

    you _might_ have a better experience if you turn off desktop effects..
    and, disable java script..
    and don't play flash..
    what a wonderful day that will be huh?

    or, you could use all of those things and just accept the less than
    wonderful scrolling jumbled text..

    or, you could try Opera, Konqueror, lynx, links or one of the others:

    There are no manufacturer drivers for intel video, because the are natively integrated in linux.

    You only find them for nvidia or ati cards, and then, not from the computer makers, but from those
    two companies.

    I have a laptop with intel video (GM45), and I have no issue at all with firefox, nor with javscript
    not with flash. It of course slower than an nvidia card, but it works perfect. At least in 11.2 it does.

    Any particular web page, or _all_?

    Try creating a new user, and browse with that one.

    Try using a different browser. Firefox or mozilla (a bit different each one), or the one native to
    your desktop.

    Try a live cd of 11.1 or 11.3 (don't install, just try browse)


    Javscript is native to each browser, isn't it? the jave engine you can change for another. Which
    flash are you using, the proprietary or the experimental open one?
