Lee: CNET news pages

I know y you do forums, but maybe you could tip off the news section there's a problem with their webpages. It's the popout column from the left side with list of stories. There's a scroller there between it and the content area, but for me on FF28 it won't work to scroll the left column, but using the mouse wheel at least does. It's not just one page, but here's one you can try it on. For it to appear you have to move the page down a bit and then the left side offers the pop out.

This not only happens in Linux using FF, but in Windows 10 using Edge.

In addition, getting it to move results in the content page moving left to right or up and down. It's action is very odd. Only the wheel works for scrolling the left column list of stories.

I tried it also in IE 11 in W10, but never saw the left read border indicating the pop out appear.

Looks like this happens when you are viewing...

the CNET article page in a narrow view vs. widescreen. I have both type of monitors setup at work and when I switched to the narrow monitor or the shrank the browser window a bit, the scroll bar doesn't work using the cursor but worked via the mouse wheel. It does this for all browsers.

James, I assume you have a narrow monitor or your browser windows was slightly shrunk a bit?

not a fan of widescreen. Have one, just takes up extra space I don't want to sacrifice, yet.
