By “scroll icon” I assume you mean “scroll bar”.

Scrolling this way worked on my first test, but I tried a bigger file and it failed there. The smaller file is 197 lines, the bigger one 8,711.

So I scroll the page a bit to make the scroll bar appear, then press and hold it. It enlarges and gives a bit of tactile feedback. In the smaller file I can then drag the bar up or down to scroll the page. In the bigger file when I try to drag it, it resumes its normal size and slips out from under my finger.

Yes, that is exactly what I’m saying. It slips and scrolls back to the original location.
