Steps to reproduce

This bug was created to separate two different issues in the bug 8628789. Copying and updating repro steps slightly.

Repro steps:

  • Open this page: https://github.com/dotnet/corefx/milestone/4
  • click with a mouse anywhere on the page.
  • Scroll up and down using keyboard Up/Down Arrows. Sometimes, the issue can be seen when using mouse scrolling or by pressing PgUp/PgDn keys on keyboard 
  • Notice the page freezes randomly

As a comparison, try these repro steps on latest stable Chrome. It should give you almost instant search results without UI freezes/hangs.
