When the page displays scrollable DIVs, you cannot use the scroll wheel to
scroll.   
http://www.hobbystar.com/ComicConTorontoV2/CC_Anime_Guests.asp?CategoryID=2 has
a DIV tag which is scrollable, yet the mousewheel will not scroll through it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a website with a scrollable DIV
2. Try and use the scroll wheel


Actual Results:  
nothing.  The page remains the same, and forces me to use the buttons on the
side of the DIV.  I can't even middleclick-drag the frame down.

Expected Results:  
Should scroll.  I hate using those damn buttons.  I HATE IT.

no additional information.  Tried on multiple computers, and I'm pretty sure i
use the default theme.

Possibly an issue with your specific mouse drivers?

My mouse drivers allow it to work in IE, and it doesn't work on other computers
(roommate's) in Firefox and in IE.
Please try with Deer Park Alpha 2 or a current trunk build. I believe this was
fixed on the trunk sometime ago.

Snapshot of a Web app dialog I am writing that uses a scrollable DIV

This demonstrated the non-scrolling problem with DIVs.
1. Open the page, hover over the blue area in te DIV and try to scroll. (NOT WORK)
2. Click in the Blue area to ensure that you have focus on the DIV - try to scroll. (NOT WORK)
3. Click on the checkbox control and try to scroll - try to scroll. (WORK!)
4. Click in the Blue area to ensure that you have focus on the DIV but NOT on the checkbox control - try to scroll. (NOT WORK)

This is the version I have.

hope this helps....Hope it changes the bug status to confirmed!

This functions as required in the Deerpark Alpha 2 build.

Scrolls vertically fine for me.  I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not, but I also have KatMouse installed to cause Windows to scroll whatever is under the cursor whether it has the focus or not.  http://kickme.to/katmouse
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Hi guys/gals I gave a detailed description of this problem about 1 1/2 years ago
(comment 5 - 2005-11-20 03:49:24), as well as sample code, the main issues was with checkboxes in a scrollable div.

I am using 2.0.0.4 and it works as beautifully...

I.M.H.O.
You can close this off if you wish.
