User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8


div.main{

	overflow: auto;
	overflow-y: scroll;
	overflow-x: hidden;
 	height:100px;
	width:100px;
}

This creates a 10x100px box that has a scroll bar in it. when the content
extneds beyond it, a little scroll bar appears in the right side, and itcan be
scrolled up and down. This renders fine in FireFox, but the scoll-mouse does not
scroll the content. I belive FireFox should handle this the same way they do
iframes, so when you have mouseovered the content, the scoll-wheel then works on
that small section.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hover over section 1
2. Move mouse wheel

Actual Results:  
3. notice nothing happened.

Expected Results:  
the inerr area should scroll, just like it woud If I used an iframe to full the
content from a separate file.

Netscape 7 and mozilla both had this problem, I recall.

Mozilla doesnt even support overflow-x/y

About the possibilty to be able to scroll elements with overflow, that is bug
97283. Duping.
