Vertical scrollbar problem in firefox
vertical scrollbar

Hello Everyone,

I have a very strange behaviour in FireFox. I use FF 1.0.
The URL is <sorry, no example URLs - please see Terms of Service [webmasterworld.com]>

When I make the browser to a smaller size, scroll bar appears which is normal.

If i click the scroll bar or drag the mouse with scroll bar and leave it, It goes back to the top. However it works if i use the mouse wheel.

It works perfectly in IE n Opera.

I am breaking my head for the last couple of hrs.Its sounds simple. but I m not getting it.

I use CSS property scroll:auto in the div tags.

Please help me fix this.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, kumanan12!

Our sincerest apologies for your post falling through the cracks for so long...

This sounds very strange. There are issues with FireFox and a scrollwheel.

What is the structure of your page? This may help us track down the source of this...

I had some private exchanges about this. It's a complex problem that comes up only with multiple nested frames and divs - and indeed, you can get a kind of "elastic" bounce-back of the scrollbar in Firefox.

It's not a bug I've seen reported, and indeed, the layout here was so complex I wonder if others will stumble over it. It takes a LOT of code to make it happen. IN fact the weird thing is that the error does not always render that way. In fact the page ends up with a different number of nested scrollbars on different browsers and even different screen sizes with the same browser.

My advice is to rethink a page structure that is that complex.
