How to use overlay scrollbars for large scrolling areas?

http://askubuntu.com – I sometimes open large files with dozens of pages of text in them. However, often I find that I drag the overlay scrollbar to the top or to the bottom of the window, but I am nowhere near the beginning or the end of the document. Currently to finish scrolling I either: a) click the scroll button 50 times to go page by page. b) drop the scrollbar, move my mouse towards the bottom of the scrollbar and click and rescroll I am really getting annoyed with this! Is something I am doing wrong? Is there another way to make it work just like regular scrollbars where you grab the elevator and dr (HowTos)
