They _can_ be scrolled with the scroll bar. Clicking in the element does not make a difference. This is tested on WinXP Pro SP1 with Firefox 0.8 and 0.9 series. I've found some bugs similar to this, bug I didn't see one describing this exact problem. If this is a dupe, sorry. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit http://glide64.emuxhaven.net/ or http://mmxg.no-ip.com/about.php OR Create a page with an element styled overflow: auto, then fill the element with a large amount of content 2. Make sure the browser window is smaller than the content and is causing scroll bars to display 3. (optional) Click in the content area to insure focus 4. Attempt to scroll with the mouse wheel or keyboard arrows Actual Results: Nothing Expected Results: The element should scroll I have Windows XP Pro w/ SP1 and a Logitech MX500 optical mouse. I do not have the Logitech Mouseware drivers installed, but I don't think this affects the problem, since it occurs with keyboard navigation as well.
worksforme with Mozilla Suite nightly winxp 2004080708 and logitech optical mouse Logitech Pilot Wheel Mouse Optical M-BT96a
