Linux/2002070915: To reproduce, go to URL, scroll down a couple of songs, then select (by dragging) the space beneath the <h2> tag (song name). Browser will scroll far down. Actually, it seems it scrolls further down the longer down on the page you are before you do it.. *ponder* (Use a different Style if you don't like the default - Tristes is quite nice, or basic page style..) If you didn't get that, Jesse@#mozillazine described it as: 01:38 < Jesse> alge: if i drag into the space between the <h2> and the text below it, moz scrolls as if it thinks that space is at or below the bottom of the page. that also happens if i start selecting in that space. it doesn't happen if i just select text in the <h2> or if i select in the empty line above the <h2>. This also happens at imdb.com, when reading user-contributed reviews of movies.

hmm. still happens. changed the url since the last thing is was a 404. Just select some text, you'll see it. and since there were no <h2> tags on the imdb-page I changed <h2> to block elements in the summary. build 2003010208/linux.

Guess this is linux/unix only, then. Still happens with 2003040222/linux.

Pehaps this bug needs clearer steps to reproduce, but I cannot reproduce it in a current Linux trunk build.... If you _can_ please give useful steps like the exact text and location in it to start dragging, the direction to drag in, and the place to drag to.
Hmm, ok. 1. Go to the url ( http://us.imdb.com/CommentsShow?0167261 ) 2. Scroll about halfway down on the page. 3. Start selecting text right above any "Email this to a friend"-img. 4. Drag down over it. -> it scrolls far down, selecting all the text from where you clicked to where the pointer is now. Still happens with a 20030426ish cvs build.
OK, thanks. With those steps, no problems reproducing.
