Can't scroll in converted text field with Mac

Post by Reuben » Thu Apr 30, 2009 5:41 pm

Just wondering if anyone else is having problems with scrolling through lengthy converted documents using either the track pad or the mouse wheel on Macs. I'm using a MacBook Pro and am unable to scroll in either Firefox 5.0 and Safari 4.0 (with Flash 10), and I know of several other Mac users who are running into the same thing. Basically, the entire screen moves up and down, but not the document text itself. When the mouse pointer is moved over the converted text, it immediately turns into the grabby hand, preventing scrolling. (I can use the hand to 'push' pages up from the bottom, but not scroll down from the top.) I am able to click and drag the sidebar to see text at the bottom of a page, but I can't scroll to additional text in a traditional, user-friendly way. I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone else who has encountered this, and even more so, what solution(s) you've figured out! This is a critical problem for me, so any ideas or suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks!
