    Default A konqueror/rekonq oddity (bug?)

    Following a link, I opened the url:
    Science is not your enemy

    This was in rekonq. I am unable to read that page in rekonq. I tried with konqueror, and I am unable to read it there, either.

    The page is fine with firefox, with midori, with opera, with epiphany (web).

    In rekonq and konqeror, I see the top of a page. But the scroll wheel does not take me down. And there is no scroll bar.

    With the other browsers that I tried, there is a scroll bar and the scroll wheel does take me down the page.

    This is likely a bug. I'm looking to see if others have the same problem, before I decide whether to post a KDE bug report on it.

    openSUSE 12.22 here. There is a functioning scroll bar in Konqueror (as well as Firefox).

    personally i do not think the 'bug' is in KDE, or Konqueror..

    because i 'played with' it in Konqueror, Qupzilla, Opera, Chrome and
    Chromium until i got some javascript errors to pop up...then i took a
    look at the code and found, for example:
    Code:
    <!--[if lt IE 7]>      <html class="no-js lt-ie9 lt-ie8 lt-ie7">
    <![endif]-->
    <!--[if IE 7]>         <html class="no-js lt-ie9 lt-ie8"> <![endif]-->
    <!--[if IE 8]>         <html class="no-js lt-ie9"> <![endif]-->
    <!--[if gt IE 8]><!-->
    which i think means the javascript is modified (later on the page)
    for for Internet Exploder versions 7 and 8 (and probably if the html
    were modified similarly for Konqueror the 'bugs' would go away)

    also found these comments embedded in the javascript code:

    Code:
    // This is required so when we're added to the homepage the view
    extends to the full height, which it won't do on iPhone 5s.
    // If this is touch enabled, we need hammer.js before we load the
    slideshow.
    // If it's not we'll still load the slideshow.
    // Only do this when we're in a touch environment, which we'll take
    to mean a mobile device and has trouble with
    // fixed position objects, hence all this tremendous hoop jumping.
    // Some things can only be done once the page has rendered, because
    we need to know its final dimensions.
    // If this is a touch environment we'll be using iscroll, so we need
    to wire up the fixed header
    // progress bar to receive its position updated.
    //This script block must be placed *after* the audio tag. Will fail
    if before.
    <!-- in mobile/touch scenarios, fixed positioned elements are
    unreliable. so we need to do a lot of work, including putting the
    marginalia outside its natural element, off canvas here. -->
    and, i note that given enough time (five or more minutes) and
    dismissing two errors saying it had to find and install a new plug-in
    (for html/text ??? which could not be found or installed!), *finally*
    Konqueror displayed the page and it could be scrolled (even though
    there were no scroll bar present..

    BUT, it would only scroll a few lines and appear to 'lock-up' for
    some minutes...and, then it would allow a few more lines to be scrolled..

    imnsho this is NOT a KDE/Konqueror problem....it is just BAD
    html/javascript code....so, write to the page owner/coder... that
    there are browsers beside IEs and iPhones that need love too.

    WOW, now after several more minutes i can scroll smoothly in
    Konqueror 4.6.0-6.17.1 running in openSUSE 11.4 Evergreen..

    patience grasshopper.
