my scroll buttons won't...

Post#1 » Fri Jul 19, 2013 2:54 pm

my scroll buttons won't scroll down/up anymore on the main page. Same with the space bar. All they do now is return the page to the top and activate the search box!
I'm using FFox 22, Win XP sp3. I can't deactivate it by clicking on the page either, like it used to do. Num lock/scroll lock are both off, as they normally are.

Huh! Clearing the cache worked! I never woulda thought that would screw with my scroll buttons, though.
Thanks, AbeZ!

Well, SHIT!! The page was working for a while but the same problem started up again! AAAARGGH!!

Making sure cookies and cache were clear, restarting FF didn't help. This isn't happening on other sites that have search boxes.

I had a similar Problem with the search I just disabled it and have no problem since. It is the Search Addon with the new FF. Disable the FF search in the Tools and let me know if it works..

I don't have any "search" addons --looked in the addons and options sections both. I updated FF several days ago and this bug just appeared today.

There's been some other little glitches in the new FF so I have been suspicious of it since. BUT this bug is ONLY involving Ice's site--all my other similar sites work fine.

I've been enjoying Ice for 3-4 years (several times a day) and this hasn't popped up before. It's just a minor thing but this is the kinda shit that drives me nuts.

I tried restarting FF in its "addons off" mode --no help there.

Because Ice is interactive. Go to >Tool>Advanced>General> Un-check Search For Text

Mine's always been unchecked. Still is.
I'll try turning it on/off...nope. That (with restart, too) didn't help.

Is your Java up to date? Is this scrolling issue keyboard related only? Is your lock key engaged (wasntme) ?

All additions are UTD. As I said, locks are (still) off. And remember, restarting FF in "restart with addons off" didn't help. Hmmmm...

Maybe it's not me?
It's only happening on Ice.

Java is not an extension, it is a plugin. Make sure it is up to date. If up to date, do you get the same results in safe mode?

Ok. This is a known issue. It does apparently have to do with Java. Admins are working on the fix. Report back when things are good for you so we know the issue is resolved (cool)

Reinstalled Firefox? You might be able to get them back if you didn't delete your profile (or if you have a system backup of it):
