Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1021249
Keyboard scrolling in html email broken after clicking on link
Last modified: 2015-02-17 12:45:43 EST
Description of problem:
Scrolling using the cursor keys or page up/down in an html email does not work after I have clicked anywhere in the email body.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : evolution
Arch : x86_64
Version : 3.8.5
Release : 2.fc19
How reproducible: For me always reproducible as follows:
1. Open an HTML email in a new window that is bigger than what fits on a screen
2. Scroll around using the keyboard (works)
3. Click inside the email body
4. Try to scroll using the keyboard (does not work).
Workaround: Clicking on text, switching to other windows and back again does not help. The only workaround is to click on the small light-grey area next to the scroll bar or on the other side of the email text. After that, the scrolling works again
Scrolling does not work in step 4.
Scrolling should work in step 4.
Thanks for a bug report. It seems like a webkitgtk3 bug for me, it doesn't propagate the key events from an inner iframe into its parent properly, probably.
Tomas, could you look on this, please?
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is

plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
