Bug 28800 remove support for scrolling on rowgroups.
I second Jørn's concern here. This would be tragic and represent a giant step *backwords* in modern web-technology. Someone should really put up a large warning-sign somewhere. Is there a *single* argument for removing this functionality?

Well, plenty of stuff has become a standard *because* it once was implemented by someone needing the functionality despite it, at the time, was incompatible with whatever standard. If you ask users instead of some committee I'm sure everyone developing serious web-applications really need scrolling tbody, regardless of whether it's part of a standard or not. Thumbs down to the Mozilla team this time!
