GtkHtml scrolls message to top whenever embedded animated gif changes
Last modified: 2009-01-27 10:26:38 EST
Description of problem:
In mails that contain animated gifs it's not possible to scroll message past the
gif. Whenever gif changes evolution positions message on top. This makes it
impossible to read message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open relatively long message that has animated gif embedded (gif has to be
invisible prior to scroll)
2. Try to scroll message past animated gif
Whenever animated gif appears in preview pane, the message is automatically
scrolled to top.
Message preview must not automatically scroll.

As far as I heard about this, it does that only with the Caret Mode on (F7 or View->Caret Mode). Just for an easier reproducer, can one of you attach here such simple message for testing, please? Thanks in advance.
I confirm that. With Caret Mode set to off, everything works good. Thank you.
Sounds like that solution is sufficient for this report. I'll close this as WORKSFORME and let upstream deal with Caret Mode's many quirks.
