Bug Description

On ubuntu phone, after the last update the Mobile Browser behaves in a strange way.
Sometimes, while scrolling down the page just goes completely white (no content is shown).
The only thing that helps is to close the tab and then open the same webpage once again.

If I rotate the screen the browser turns ok (as normal), but the page is still white and no content is shown.
If I would swipe the bottom part of the screen (like for opening a new tab) I can still see
the name of the tab (webpage), but no content is shown, if I try to reopen the tab by tapping on it then the content blinks for a fraction of the second and then the screen is white again and I can not see the content (just like before).

It appears very often on and I also get it each time when I open a page on
I also got it several times on other random websites.

It's an ubuntu 15.04
OS build number 24
