Does it happen on random websites or is it only on the same few? I sometimes get that if I scroll down a page that has not finished loading. Usually adverts that are slower to load and then the page seems to jump up and down as they load. It happens a lot on my Galaxy tab more than on pc.

Just for elimination, if a PC, try a different mouse. If laptop try an external mouse.
