Illustrator Gets Stuck Or Jumps To The Bottom Of The List When Scrolling Through Fonts

This has always bothered me and tonight I finally stopped and figured out why it does it. I probably should have looked for this solution before since I have over 100k in fonts but tonight was the night that I finally was annoyed enough.

To fix this problem do the following:

1. Go to Edit > Preferences
2. Select Type
3. Uncheck Enable Missing Glyph Protection

Scroll your life away looking for that perfect font!
