Scroll "flickering" when collaborate on Docs

Do you want to: report a bug
Document Server version: 7.2
Type of installation of the Document Server
OS: Docker on Ubuntu, integration in Nextcloud
Browser version: Firefox 104

When I use the Document Server to collaborate on a docx, (2 people in collaboration) the document window scroll alone to make the document match the middle of the page (c.f. the gif bellow).

Steps to reproduce:

  • Open a document with another person
  • One of the person is on page 1, the second on page 2
  • While the first is writing, the document of the second scrolls by itself to be on the middle of the page 2.
  • If already on the middle of the page no problem.

I was using Docs in integration with Nextcloud AIO there was the problem so now I’m using it with the docker deployement. And, with default configuration the problem is present.
Can you help me ?
Best Regards,

This is probably not relevant but there is a Apache reverse proxy in front of Nginx, these are the key parts of the Apache VirtualHost configuration:

  <IfModule setenvif_module>
    SetEnvIf Host "^(.*)$" THE_HOST=$1
  <IfModule headers_module>
    RequestHeader setifempty X-Forwarded-Proto https
    RequestHeader setifempty X-Forwarded-Host %{THE_HOST}e

Nginx is on port 8080.

Thank you @Constantine and @chris

Here’s a brief recording (I cannot upload here): Animorph Hub

Sometimes when I write I get pushed up or down when someone else edits the document. In this captured case I wrote a sentence and scrolled a tiny bit (with a mouse scroll) but someone else’s activity in the document suddenly pushes me much further down (without me doing anything).

Hope this helps clarify the issue, it has been with us for a long while really and made collaborating in real-time very challenging.
