    Posting here is NOT the best way to get Apple's attention, since they don't monitor these forums for problems.


    A far better way is to use the feedback page instead.

    I agree it is irritating.

    I have found this CSS snippet that apparently disables it: s-in-safari-5-1/


    Now to figure out how to implement the CSS rule in every web page we visit... probably via a Safari extension, like QuickStyle or NinjaKit.

    This feature, along with so many of LION's gimmicks, is dreadful.


    I have been using LION now since it's release.


    In my personal opinion, all these new features are a waste of time, dramatically reducing output, workflow, and productivity.


    I can understand that touch-pads and phones need alternative interfaces, that's agreed, however lets not sacrifice the desktops productivity and intuitiveness. 


    Safari, appears to behave slowly and exhibits poor overall performance, scrolling is slow, blurry and jagged, and the rubber band space at the top/bottom of the page is annoying.


    Folders appear to rearrange themselves, and lose any view options set by the user. This is an obvious mistake, and demonstrates the software was released without sufficient checks.


    Full screen apps, come on, that feature sounds great, one of my reasons for buying Lion, but the final execution is appalling, i just can't see the benefit, they should have called it, 'Bar at the top of the window removed'.


    Reverse scrolling, what were they thinking, seriously, was that a joke?


    New calendar, no change there, fake leather appearance.


    Mail, looks great, but no real change from previous SL.


    Autosave, Pages, freaked me out initially, but appears to be a good feature.


    Anyway my overall impression of LION is, it's slow, it's buggy, it's rubbish.

    hate this rubber banding scroll vertical and horizontal... apple, *** is going on?

    Motion sickness

    It's terrible.


    Using a Magic Mouse almost always triggers a slight horizontal scroll; you can never swipe straight down. And combined with the bouncy, elastic, rubber-band scrolling makes me completely dizzy when scrolling.

    Most web pages don't have a horizontal scrollbar so they end up bouncing like crazy.


    The only solution I've found is to completely disable horizontal scrolling on the Magic Mouse:


    Please send Apple feedback here regarding this, they're notorious for silently fixing stuff:

  • Király Level 6 Level 6

    In the end I just dumped Lion and returned to Snow Leopard. Home sweet home.

  • Quala Level 1 Level 1

    Just bought a Macbook Air, with Lion preinstalled, so that's not an option for me.

  • Király Level 6 Level 6

    Sorry to hear that. Learn to live with it is the best advice I can offer, since I don't think there will ever be an option to disable it.

  • davidomundo Level 1 Level 1

    Please join me in giving feedback about this to Apple using this page:


    They'd listen if a large number of users start complaining about this.

  • icpmsguru Level 1 Level 1

    I've been trying to disable that bouncy effect too. I've found that it doesn't exist in the Firefox browser so if you can live without Safari then just download Firefix and browse the bounce-free internet.

    When you instal Firefox it will ask if you want to copy over your Bookmarks from Safari and if you want Firefox to be your default browser so its a painless installation.

    It's a workaround, I know but it works.

  • Király Level 6 Level 6

    The Firefox fix would be fine if it were only a web browser issue.


    But the bouncing trampoline is everywhere - TextEdit, Preview, Pages... it would be nice to disable it everywhere.


    Well, I actually have - by returning to Snow Leopard.

  • Fofer Level 1 Level 1

    The problem with the "return to Snow Leopard" as a fix, of course, is that it invariably precludes you from some new (and very nice) software offerings that are Lion-only. iBooks Builder is the most recent example (even though yes, there's a hacky workaround to get it into SL.)


    And services, too.  The one in particular I'm thinking about is iCloud.  iCloud requires Lion.  MobileMe will be discontinued, come June.  Then what?  I have iOS (iPad, iPhone, AppleTV, etc.) and iCloud is the most elegant glue that keeps them synced.  Sure, there are suitable replacements for certain elements like email, contacts, calendar and document storage (ie: Google Apps, Exchange, DropBox etc.) but what about the other cool stuff, like iCloud backup, Find My iPhone, and PhotoStream?


    And so, I have bit the bullet and embraced Lion.  I removed the godawful "Launchpad" icon from my dock, and disabled any keyboard shortcuts to it.  I've also upgraded to an SSD drive.  I've tweaked the settings, added some third-party apps that help tame the beast (like RestoreMeNot, BetterTouchTool, and others.)  And I've embraced iCloud.  iTunes Match too.  And I have to say, Lion's pretty darn awesome now.


    At the end of the day, the "rubber band scrolling" sure is annoying, but not as annoying to me as being precluded from the latest and greatest.  Yes, it's simply bad UI for a desktop or laptop screen and should never have made it's way into MacOS  I do hope we see one day a way to toggle it off -- from Apple, with an explicit or hidden preference, or a third party.  Until then, I have managed to just chalk this bad UI element up to being one of those annoyances I can live with.  There are certainly bigger fish to fry, and life's too short. 


    Apple's made it clear, Lion (and the iOSification of our software) is the future.  I'm not going to rest on ceremony and downgrade to SL over the rubber band scrolling issue alone.

  • davidomundo Level 1 Level 1

    So let's make it a happier future by filing bugs against Apple so they can give us the option to disable rubber band scrolling in Lion.
