On installation toay of 1.0.1, scroll bar behavior is not normal. Clicking to scroll up or down often produces scrolling that does not stop when mouse button is released; instead, scrolling continues until cursor is moved onto desktop space. Problem intermittent, but happens more often than not. Sometimes scrolling will move document to top or bottom, other times seems to stop at a random location. Spinning globe also appears along with this behavior. No other problems noted. Mozilla running on iBook 600 mhz OS X 10.1.5.
I have had this problem a few times on a frames page with four frames of streaming Java video, that also makes the scrollbar paint erroneously about where the URL text field is... Alas, it is a very rare event, and there is no reliable way to reproduce it (unless some knowledgable person is willing to do some rough browsing on a hardcore pornsite...).
John, what build ID are you reporting this bug against?
Bug appears on Build ID: 2002081505 An interesting side note: in some cases (I haven't yet figured out pattern) Mozilla won't stop loading a page and I have to stop it manually. It may be only in these instances that the scrolling bug appears. I will check this and report further. JPH

This has been a problem on the trunk since shortly after 1.0. I think the last builds I downloaded (1.1 "release candidates, sorry build ID not to hand but believe ~18/08/2002) seem slightly better, but still with a significant delay before noticing that the scroll button has been released.

Generally there are several ways of using the scroll buttons(arrows): 1. "Fast", single click on an arrow at the scroll bar; Mozilla works well here 2. A Little longer click at the arrow (about a second long); Mozilla fails here. It's quite easy to reproduce it: click at the arrow at the scroll bar for about a second, release the mouse key and _DON'T_ move the mouse. Mozilla will scroll the document until the user moves the cursor. You can try this at both: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=163502 http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Browser 3. Clicking the button (arrow) and holding down the mouse key. Mozilla doesn't work well here. Instead of scrolling the document smoothly it "jumps" from one part of the document to the other, making it impossible to see the content of the document/page. Of course the user may also grab the scroll bar and move it upwards or downwards, Mozilla works well here, but it's not a "smooth scrolling". My guess is this bug may not occur at faster machines, but it's present at my computer (G3 500/384 RAM) which is not really an old one. I'm using Mozilla 2002083017 for Mac OS X.
A really pesky bug, I've noticed this on all releases from 1.0.1 to 1.2a used on MacOS X 10.1.x It turns Mozilla user experience to a nightmare.
This also happens in Linux, Moz version 1.1 Example URL http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/tables.html

Reproduceable build 20021120 7.01 http://wp.netscape.com/eng/mozilla/ns7/relnotes/7.html#problems mouse up recognized, scrolling stops after moments http://www.dmnforums.com/htm/homeset.htm mouse up not recognized. scrolling continues until page ends temporary workaround moving mouse away from scroll initiantion point (mouse up) will stop scrolling
The problem seems to be fixed in 1.4a (2003030703), at least for me.
Isn't this bug the same as bug 157123?
