Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm not sure if this is possible to fix, but I'll describe it anyway. On a question Calculate correct values to use in layout_weight? if I press my mouse's scroll button down on the code block, I can move my mouse around and scroll to areas not actually defined by the code block.

You can see what's happening below:


I would expect it to only scroll to areas scrollbar would be allowed to go.
I believe this just started happening after I updated to Google Chrome 14 (14.0.835.163 under Windows), so it's possibly this is a bug in Chrome (tagging as discussion for now).

I don't get vertical middle-mouse scrolling on Firefox, so I can't verify much one way or the other. – Nightfirecat Sep 16 '11 at 19:12
I did not get that w/ Chrome 13 – cwallenpoole Sep 16 '11 at 19:51
Confirmed in Chrome 14 – cwallenpoole Sep 16 '11 at 20:03
Took me a while to twig that it's a screenshot and not a real iframe in your post :) – Flexo Sep 17 '11 at 8:31
The real bug is that there are no Easter eggs outside of the normally scrollable area. Anyone find any secret messages? – Kevin Vermeer Sep 29 '11 at 12:05

This was a bug in Chrome which has been recently fixed, and I imagine will be resolved in an upcoming stable release. I'm unable to reproduce the issue in Chrome dev.
