Worse, when scrolling down through a frame, and the end of the frame is reached, Firefox will scroll the entire page, pushing the top of the frame out of view, and you cannot then scroll back UP the frame without scrolling the main window to bring the top of the frame back into view. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load above example bugzilla page 2. place mouse cursor over the frame listing the bugs 3. use mouse scroll wheel and scroll to the bottom of the frame, and keep scrolling 4. The entire page will then scroll, and the top of the frame will scroll off the screen Actual Results: 5. The mouse scroll button no longer will scroll the frame even when it is placed over the frame. The only way to get the frame to respond to mouse scroll events is to scroll the main page itself until the top of the frame is again visible. Expected Results: Anytime the mouse cursor is over a frame, the frame itself should accept the events and scroll itself. (i.e. Mozilla 1.7.3 does this properly) This makes using the mouse scroll button almost unusable.
Firefox does this but only on certain websites, such as TVGuides listing page
On a related note, if you hold your mouse over an inner window and scroll down with the mouse button, then it will stop scrolling once it reaches the end of the inner window. Generally when this happens, the outer window should scroll down if it has the chance. Moreover, this only seems to be an issue with scrolling down, if you are scrolling up it does the correct thing, and will scroll the outer window if the inner window can not scroll up any farther.
