Scollbar with Trackpad inconsistent with Desktop/Mouse
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If you click on the scrollbar in a certain place (I think it's on the right hand side of the screen, in a very small gap between the scrollbar and the end of the window), it moves in unexpected ways.

Scrollbar does not appear when hovering over where it should exist on right. It does on desktop/mouse.

Can you provide specific details to re-produce? Browser? OS? Mouse or Trackpad? etc...

Google Chrome, Ubuntu, trackpad.

I don't think we have that environment to test, and Mac/Chrome/Trackpad has different results (it doesn't make the bar appear at all).

I have no problem scrolling with trackpad on Debian + Chrome Version 39.0.2171.65 (64-bit) OR Iceweasel (Firefox) 33.0a2 (2014-08-08).

I believe I have reported the same issue in T7363, when using mouse, Firefox 35, GNOME 3.14, Fedora 21. There is a space between the scroll bar and the edge of the window where it does not perform a bar grab, but page down move instead. Easily tested with maximized Firefox and moving the cursor to the very right (last pixel on the screen). Which is something I usually do, I just throw the cursor against the right edge and click.

I'm seeing the same thing (what @kparal said) in Chrome 40 on Ubuntu.

Presumably obsoleted by T8151, reopen if this is still an issue at HEAD.
