Default Warning: Chrome + HWC Navigation

Please note that we have identified an issue with Chrome's new scrolling method in Wordpress / vBulletin.

As of the latest Chrome update, Google has removed the up / down navigation and scrolling arrows in the main browser and within drop-down boxes. The problem area is highlighted below.

ISSUE-123

At this time, due to a bug introduced with this version of Chrome, the scrolling function within the review drop-down navigation box has been disabled. As such, you may need to use the up / down keys to navigate past Page 19 within the pull-down box in some reviews.

Google has been made aware of this issue, under no circumstance do we support it and it has been discussed widely on the developer forums.

It works perfectly fine if you have any kind of scrolling/scrollbar extension installed. Or you could just go into chrome://flags and fix it.

I'm using Chrome Version 32.0.1700.76 m and this is how the nav menu works for me:


Here are my installed extensions:





Edit: I use Windows 8, and the only UI modification I have is Start8 installed (its a skin for Windows, not Chrome in particular).

Sorry, what's the issue here? It seems to work fine for me as well with the latest Chrome.

You can drag the slider fine and the scroll wheel also works fine.

Mouse scrolling wheel is working for me, but I'm unable to drag the slider.

I'm thinking it's more of an issue for folks using a laptop track pad who aren't aware that two finger swipes will scroll.

It seems totally random. On Saturday I tried on six different computers, of which all had the issue. Early this morning, I tried the six again and three worked while the other three didn't. Google may have pushed out another incremental update that didn't reach some of the PC's yet.
