To reproduce the bug: 1. Load the URL 2. Wait until the page will be downloaded completely. Results: The thumb is shrinking as more of the page is loaded and eventually disappears (shrinks to zero length) Expected results: The thumb is shrinking to some minimum length and when doesn't shrink any more. Comments It seems that the thumb length is calculated as a proportion of the total_page_height/window_height. For very long pages it caused the thumb to be so short that is disappears.
The requested URL /local-access-only/l10n/www/localization/English_Russian was not found on this server.
To jag: Ooops.. It seems that Bugzilla mangled the URL. The correct URL is: http://l10n.openoffice.org./localization/English_Russian_OOo_Glossary.htm Tested it again from a new window - the bug reproduced OK. I feel that any page long enough will suffice - the mentioned is just the one I'd hapeened to hit into.
CONFIRMing on build 2002022503, Win98, although it takes a *long* time to load the test page, and Mozilla seems like it's locked until everything finishes loading. For what it's worth, I really feel the scrollbar thumb should never get smaller than about the height of the scrollbar arrows. Anything smaller is too tough to grab for most people.
Not just long pages. Also on pages, apparently, where the images are longer than the text: http://www.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=02/03/15/1319229 Both URLs cause problems with v0.99: Build ID: 2002031106 on Mac OS 9. Note that Mac OS scrollbar thumbs are fixed in size.
This bug is also reproducible on OS X, build 2002031005. Should be All/All.
Works for me with the Mozilla build 2002051006 (RC2) on WinNT4 SP6 (NT 4.00.1381) Thanks !!! Can anyone confirm this on another platforms, so the bug can be marked as "FIXED" ?
Yes, it also works for me with 2002051006 (RC2) on Win2k.
Also WFM with RC3 (2002052309) on Linux.So Ilia, if you like to close this bug...
Looks as the bug is solved (On Win32 & Linux platforms that's confirmed). Close it.
