Scrolling on tbody when tbody has a height and overflow set to auto doesn't work in Firefox 3.7 alpha.
Steps to Reproduce:
Create a table with
<tbody style="height: 100px; overflow: auto">

Test case for overflow on tbody (also my testcase for text-overflow: ellipsis)
Bug 28800 remove support for scrolling on rowgroups.
Has scrolling on rowgroups been removed!!!
Who in there right mind would do that?
When creating web applications for different companies we always recommend developing for Firefox because Firefox is the only one supporting this great feature. "Every body" want's information displayed in tables with static header (and sometimes footer).
I it will get removed you should also post a it as an up coming "feature" at:
I personally knows a lot of Intranet applications which will break, and developers needs a head up to warn their customers.
I second Jørn's concern here. This would be tragic and represent a giant step *backwords* in modern web-technology. Someone should really put up a large warning-sign somewhere.
Is there a *single* argument for removing this functionality?

Incompatible with CSS standard and other browsers, see bug 28800 comment 37

Well, plenty of stuff has become a standard *because* it once was implemented by someone needing the functionality despite it, at the time, was incompatible with whatever standard.
If you ask users instead of some committee I'm sure everyone developing serious web-applications really need scrolling tbody, regardless of whether it's part of a standard or not.
Thumbs down to the Mozilla team this time!
