There was a scrolling issue going around about some Motorola’s (E398 and V3 Razr, as far as I know) that wouldn’t be able to scroll some web pages with it’s builtin web browser.
Some people would tell me they couldn’t scroll on some of my wap pages sometimes, and it’s not exactly easy to reproduce if you don’t have a Motorola to test with
Here is what I found…
Thanks, looks like I’ve found something.
SUMMARY: Don’t use “position:relative;” in CSS for a mobile page for some Motorola’s.
See, wap.defza.com/test/1.php (and up to 7.php).
A motorola V3 Razr fails to scroll on every one except the 7.php one;
The difference: the main <div> looks like this on the broken ones:
<div style=”text-align:left; position:relative;”>
The one that works has
<div style=”"> So, clearly it’s an issue with DIVs and STYLEs on some Motorola’s;
I tested more to see if it’s “text-align:” causing the issue or “position:”.
I used wap.defza.com/test/a.php (up to d.php) for this;
a.php and c.php are OK. b.php and d.php FAIL on the V3 Razr.
b and d have “position:relative” in either the div class or the .body CSS.
So, the fix would be to NOT have “position:relative” as a style in a WAP page for some Motorola’s.
The value of text-align: does not affect this bug.
I see in the hawhaw.inc file it says:
// position:relative is needed to work-around MSIE’s Peekaboo bug …
What version of IE is this referring to?
I removed it from my hawhaw.inc and it seems fine in IE.
Glad this is hopefully solved
There is nothing the end-user can do about this issue, but if you do find a webpage that can’t scroll on your Motorola at least you know what to suggest as a fix to the website owner
Motorola, I hope you’ve fixed this bug already!
