In IE I can scroll content in a scrollable DIV element using the mouse wheel but other browsers such as FireFox and Opera scroll the entire page instead. How can I force these other browsers to emulate IE's behavior?

Since there's, no standard, unless I missed some DOM2 or DOM3 event types, method to detect the mouse wheel with client side script, the only option left is via a plugin/extension.

After checking the DOM2 specifications : Mouse Events and DOM3 working group notes : Mouse event types, it is clear that there really is NO standard for mouse wheel events.

ZOD: I'm quite sure this bug is in the bugzilla for Mozilla. Go there and see if you can find it. If not, why don't you report it?

As for Opera, I suggest you first go grab the latest preview release for your platform. (Unless you're on Mac, in which case I suggest you write a test case that I can try the latest internal build on.)
Try it in the preview release and if the bug remains report it in the Opera Beta Testing forum.


(Update: Tested in op7.60 1891 on the Mac (not the latest version, but I'll change to the latest one next time I reboot it. ), and scrolling works in an overflow:auto/scroll situation, but not if you just mouse over it. You must bring focus to it, by for example clicking in it, to be able to scroll it using the scroll wheel.)


I suggest you don't try to fix it by scripting the interface. That is bound to introduce more problems than it solves, especially if you can't test it across the board.
