However, if the pointer is over a Flash advertisement, the scroll wheel doesn't seem to do anything. This is a Linux only problem that I have noticed on Firefox 1.5, Firefox 2.0, Seamonkey 1.0.X and Seamonkey 1.1b. The versions of Linux that this happened on were Fedora Core 3-4, Ubuntu Warty, Breezy and Dapper. This problem is annoying, as I often move the pointer to the right of the main text in a web page and scroll using the mousewheel. Then suddenly the page sticks and won't scroll, because a Flash advertisement has moved under the pointer. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run Firefox/Seamonkey under linux 2. Bring up a web page with Flash ads 3. Verify that scrolling with the mouse wheel works fine, except if the pointer is over the Flash ad Actual Results: Can't scroll with the mouse wheel if the pointer is over a flash add (which works fine on Windows) Expected Results: Scrolling with the mouse wheel works with the pointer over flash ads, just like on Windows

Sorry, I searched on "scroll wheel" and "Flash", not "mouse wheel" and "plugin", so I didn't find 102573. I did try to avoid entering a duplicate bug and wasting your time.
