Windows 7: Windows 7 IE9 Scrolling Issue

Windows 7 IE9 Scrolling Issue


New this this forum and like some help with the IE9 browser. I'm unble to scroll correctly on some website's that have another little scroll-box within the website I'm viewing. It's like a little-box that has a scroll-bar inside of the website. I can't scroll it and when I do the entire website scrolls instead. But once I reach to the bottom of the website and move my cursor over the little scroll-box I can scroll it down.

I know this is an IE9 issue because I have 3 other web-browsers and they don't have this issue. I'm actually able to scroll the little scroll-box without the whole entire website scrolled. Only IE9 has this problem. Any help and suggestions be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I have read that this MIGHT work...

IE > Tools > internet Options > Advanced Tab > Browsing > Untick "Use Smooth Scrolling > OK > Restart IE.

Thanks for the suggestion but didn't help. That only makes it less smooth or smooth. I will post a picture if possible to show what my problem is. What I'm talking about is a website that has a smaller scroll-box within the web page. I can't access it with my mouse or just hover my cursor over it and scroll it down or up. But in other browsers such as Chrome or Firefox it works fine and it does not scroll the entire web page but just what is underneath my mouse cursor. It's difficult but I don't want to switch browsers.

Anyone have a solution for this? It's been a few days and I still can't figure it out. I've contacted MS but no answer. It seems like this is only an issue for me. I've restored IE9 to default and turn off smooth-scrolling and all that.

It's such a drag but I might as well switch to Google Chrome.

Sadly no bright ideas are forthcoming it seems.

Do as you say... try another Browser.
My recommendation would be Pale Moon.
Suggest you give it a try.

Welcome to the Pale Moon project homepage

Why settle for a basic build of your Firefox browser on Windows Operating Systems when you can have one that is specifically made for getting the most out of your system? Mozilla does not provide optimized browser packages for Windows, meaning you may be losing speed and efficiency when you use your browser; and truth be told, most people use their browsers all the time! That needs to change, so, here is the Pale Moon project: Custom-built and optimized Firefox-based browsers for Windows Operating Systems. Make sure to get the most speed and efficiency out of your browser!
