Reporter, could you please look at the source for that page and locate a line in
the javascript code that uses "window.scroll()" or maybe "scroll()", and paste
it here? The exception means that the method doesn't have enough arguments.
In Mozilla window.scroll() takes two arguments: the x coord, and the y coord.

This is the only line I could find browsing the different files:

<body background="/c/images/bg_home_big.jpg" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0"
marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" onLoad="preload();scroll('scroller');">



setting status to NEW.

Should scroll() be replaceable?  Sounds like the page may be defining its own....

|scroll| is replaceable, defining your own scroll function works just fine.

|scroll| doesn't seem to be replaceable to me. It isn't in the list of JSStrings
in nsDOMClassInfo and nsIDOMWindowInternal doesn't document it as being replaceable.

jst, any idea? like I said scroll doesn't sound replaceable to me

Fabian, |scroll| is a method, not a property, thus it's replaceable by nature
(only properties with getter and setter methods have issues with "replaceability").

WORKSFORME, no error on the page when loaded in mozilla, but I do see a JS error
when I load the page in IE. This site needs to fix their issues, but I don't see
a problem in mozilla on this page (except for some potential layout bugs, but
those are unrelated to this bug).
