    Suggestions. When I scroll down a page in Safari I use my thumb along the right side to scroll; however, often times the screen turns blue signifying a copy/paste, not what I want to happen.

    Using the text area to scroll one needs to be careful not to open a "hot" link to another web page.

    Sure would be nice to have a wider right-side scroll area that isn't sensitive to a copy request.

    Anyone else have same issue?

    yup, it is an annoyance, seems the screen is just to sensitive, would be nice to change the settings somehow to get around this.

    Your holding your finger on the screen. Don't touch it unless your moving up or down the screen

    Thanks. Got that, but if I want to do a slow scroll that is when blue screen occurs. Will try to be more conscious about moving finger up/down and not pausing.

    Yea the slow scroll is a lot harder. I normally flick it just a hair instead of the slow scroll
