Platform: PowerBook G3/300/192Mb/48Gb, MacOS X 10.1.1 Fizzilla Build ID: 2001112005 Try the following. 1) Set your display to 1024x768, make the main browser window approx. 3/4 the size of the screen. Perhaps a inch away from the bottom, and 2 inches away from the right side. 2) Go here. http://www.nominum.com/ 3) Click the down arrow. What happens: the page begins to scroll up as the "news" text scrolls up, until it can't scroll any more at which point the vertical scrollbar disappears. What should happen: the page should not scroll as the News text scrolls. - Adam
OK, here's what I think is happening : The page has a vertically-scrolling news ticker. It works by scrolling a div (which contains the text) slowly upwards. Though it is mostly hidden, this div is several hundred pixels high. When at its lowest extreme (i.e. when you're reading the top headline), the bottom of this div is well below the bottom of the window, so you see a scrollbar. As the div moves upwards, the "page" gets shorter and shorter, so the scrollbar moves accordingly. IMO, this is just a quirk of the way they've coded their ticker. There's probaby some cunning changes that can be made to their code which will make the problem go away.
Hmm, so then you're thinking this might just be an evangelism problem? - Adam
