Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 100912
scroll bars don't work when clicked, instead only work when dragged
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:10 EDT
I'm running epiphany-0.8.0-1 on my Severn box and on my Redhat 9 + parts of
Rawhide box. On Severn, clicking on the scroll bar buttons or on "empty" space
in the scroll bar does not cause a window to scroll. However, this works just
fine on my RH9+RawhideParts box.
This is 100% reproducible for me. I haven't seen this problem on any other gtk2
Also, my mouse wheel doesn't work in epiphany on Severn either, but it does in
other gtk2 applications.
Hmm. I'm seeing a different symptom at the moment, after a reboot or two. I can
use the scroll bar empty space and the scroll buttons just fine now. The mouse
wheel only works until I click the cursor in an editable field of the browser,
like the comments field that I'm typing in right now. The mouse wheel will begin
functioning properly once I click anywhere else in the pane.
Also, smaller editable fields like the one to the right of "Bug x depends on" in
this bugzilla record don't seem to trigger the problem. Weird!
This is working for me, just fine. Are you using an odd gtk theme by any
chance? Also, these are all stock builds, right?
No, I'm using Bluecurve out of the box, across the board. I've been updating to
stock rawhide daily, and haven't seen a change in behavior this whole time. I
just created a new user account and tried it out, to make sure that nothing in
my configuration had become hosed. I see the same problem from the new user
account as well.
Because my original report was fairly crummy, let me resummarize how I produce
1. Open this the URL for a bug, like this one, Bug #100912.
2. Click in the "Keywords" text box.
3. Use mouse wheel to scroll the page up and down (successfully).
4. Click in the "Additional Comments" text box.
5. Try to use mouse wheel to scroll the page up and down (doesn't work).
Hope that helps.
Oh, that's not a bug. That's just because textareas can be scrolled with the
mouse wheel while text inputs can't. Fill up the entire text area so it
produces a scrollbar and scroll with the mouse and you'll see what I'm talking
Cool. I think that I just latched onto that after seeing the original
