Load any page with a text area and that is long enough to need to scroll. Click in the text area and drag down till the page scrolls to the bottom. Now try to use the scrollbars. Reload doesn't help. Mozilla 20020718 trunk
worksforme win2k 7/18 trunk for a testcase based on description above. maybe I need more detail (or a specific testcase) or maybe it's an winxp thing.
All that is required is to click into a textarea (and don't let up) and drag the mouse to the bottom of the Mozilla window. The window will begin scrolling, and once the textarea goes off the top of the page you lose all mouse control. You can't stop the scrolling, and the scrollbars don't work.
Right. It was the "once the textarea goes off the top of the page" that I was missing, since the testcase I set up, while scrolling to the bottom, did not move the textarea offscreen. Yep. Goes whacky, win2k 7/18 trunk. However, I was able to recover with reload, or by hitting Esc and clicking above the scrollbar thumb. Still, it's broken (workaround or not).
bug confirmed - 2002071904/win98se
I see this on Linux too, build 2002061808.
This should be under Editor: Core, I think.

A better workaround is to use the "arrow up" or "PageUp" key to scroll up until you see the textarea again.

Is this still an issue?
I think this is fixed for quite some time. I'm marking this WFM. If someone can still reproduce this, then please reopen.
