Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to the given web page ( http://www.komw.net/partyline/thisweek/ ) 2. Click and hold on the down arrow on the scroll bar for a short period of time. 3. Release the mouse button and observe. Actual Results: The page continues scrolling. The scrolling will often continue for a full page of the display (on a window of about 800x600 pixels). Expected Results: The scrolling should have stopped when I released the mouse button. I wouldn't expect the page to continue scrolling for more than one or two lines. Happens with all themes here -- Pinball, Classic, and Modern.
worksforme with linux trunk 2005060905 and 1.7.8 can you try a more recent trunk build? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk/ ==> layout
I can't reproduce either.
Have you tried at the site given? http://www.komw.net/partyline/thisweek/ In 1.7.10, it still keeps scrolling on its own. It seems to be more likely to do this with multiple columns/frames? (It didn't do it for me, either, on this Bugzilla page, though it does it fairly consistently on the KOMW page noted.)
sandreas: 1.7.whatever is NOT a trunk build. It's old stuff.
Oops, sorry. ... Hmmm, looks very different from 1.7.x. Trying to install a 1.7.x chrome on it (Pinball 2004-09-15_1.7 in my case, oops) causes a segmentation fault; I think that an error message would be better. :) As to this problem, though... The build retrieved today from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk/ does correct the problem. While it does not immediately stop when releasing the mouse button, neither is it continuing for several (like 8) seconds, like 1.7.10 does. Since it only continues maybe 1 to 3 lines now, I suppose it's acceptable. The scrolling is also jerkier (less smooth) than 1.7.10 appeared to be, though.

Looks like KOMW's page changed, and it no longer causes this problem under 1.7.x, so there seems to be no point in checking this any more. (Then again, X has been upgraded in the interrim as well, so maybe that did it...)
