The scrolling works with the keyboard and the mouse wheel, but not when it's clicked and draged Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create an <a> tag. 2. put a scrollable area inside (i.e. <span style="height: 150px; overflow: auto; float: left; width: 150px;">) 3. put some content inside so that the scroll appears Actual Results: not scrollable with the mouse Expected Results: it should be scrollable with the mouse

Created attachment 557860 [details] Example test case used to reproduce this bug Confirmed this bug. See attached HTML file for an example test case. My test case details are below: Steps: 1) Open scrolltest.html 2) Click the scrollbar slider and drag it to the right. Expected: Scrollbar slider and internal container should move to the right. Actual: The container is dragged towards the right, scrollbar slider does not move, container does not move. Build Information: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110902 Firefox/9.0a1
Confirmed with: 7.0b2 Todays Nightly Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110902 Firefox/9.0a1 The scrollbar works properly for a short way, so it can be scrolled in small steps. A longer scroll-drag becomes drag of the container.
OS: Windows Vista → All
Summary: can't scroll with the mouse if the scrollable area is inside an "a" link tag → can't scroll with the mouse if the scrollable area is inside an "a" link tag (scrollbar dragging → container dragging)
