Testing in #firebird has shown that this occurs with a 0.8 branch build (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031218 Firebird/0.7+), a trunk build (12-16), a trunk Mozilla build (12-20, I think), and a Firebird trunk build by noririty. This, however, does not occur on Mozilla Firebird 0.7. All builds were tested with a brand new profile. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to dailyrotation.com. 2. Middle click on a link to open it in a new tab in the background. 3. Try to scroll down with a mouse wheel. Actual Results: Nothing. Expected Results: It should've scrolled down, like it has done previously.
Noririty tested the Mozilla build: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/2003122009
Also: This bug does not occur with Mozilla 1.5 Also: Tested with Win98SE and WinXP.
May also be worth noting that when I have tabs set to open in the foreground I can wheel scroll on the story I opened in the new tab, but after closing this tab, returning me to the dailyrotation tab, the wheel does not function there until clicking within the document.

Odd... this is the first time I've seen this happen--usually it's the exact opposite where I can't scroll with the keyboard, and it affects all pages /except/ one. OS -> All (I'm on Linux) Notes: it only affects some links on the page (namely, not the ones next to New Additions or Current Top Headline), it really /is/ focus problems since tabbing to the links causes the problem too.
OS: Windows 98 → All
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Summary: [site-specific apparently] Middle-clicking a link to open it in a new tab to load in the background disables mouse wheel scrolling due to focus problems → Can't scroll with mousewheel when certain links have focus
Created attachment 138323 [details] testcase based on dailyrotation.com The problem is the overflow:hidden div. For an overflow:hidden div where part is actually scrolled off, it makes sense for wheel scrolling to scroll the div, at least until you get to the bottom of the div. But this overflow:hidden div doesn't have a height set, so it looks like a normal div.
Summary: Can't scroll with mousewheel when certain links have focus → Can't scroll with mousewheel when a link in an overflow:hidden div has focus
Isn't this bug 97283?
Depends on: 97283
This bug has vanished mysteriously for me on the official 0.8 release: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8
Er, lack of activity, and that it's vanished -> WORKSFORME.

I still see this bug at dailyrotation and at the testcase. Reopening. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040306 Firefox/0.8.0+ (stipe)

Aack, you're right. Should've tested it with a new profile. AiO 0.9.7 seems to make this bug go away.
I can reproduce the problem in 2004-08-05-10 trunk Linux, but not in a debug build with the patch for bug 97283 in it (should be fixed in nightlies shortly). *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 97283 ***
