I don't believe that the Color timeline is intended for the style of usage you imply... I've basically never had anything but a short scene fit in the timeline so as to be all visible at once. The timeline is more for reference and to display the stacking order of corrections. There are many other facilities in the various rooms for dealing with the minutiae.
Color isn't without flaws, but generally works pretty well. If it is "misbehaving" you may have a corruprt project file or something of that nature.

You might want to peruse the User Guide, especially the part about "Frames/Seconds/Minues/Hours" in the User Interface Settings in the Setup Room. I think you'll find that part rather informative.
