This post is really just to see if others are having the same problem.

Recently, I am hitting sites where the page will not scroll up. News sites, mostly but a few links to others. Not many. Maybe one in an hour of heavy reading of the day's news.

The page will clearly have more info at the bottom, but the trackpad has no effect, nor does the arrow keys and no scroll bar appears. It is only on OSX (I have ML and MAV) and not confined to Safari. I tried the same links on an oddball browser like SeaMonkey and get the same problem.

But… I crank up my Debian with SeaMonkey (or FF) and the page works just fine. Therefore, my statement that it is only a problem with OSX.

No big thing, but just wondering what might be happening.
