bug 512 - can't scroll zoomed page in IE8....... wait... maybe...

Issue: #512
Affects: IE8 Beta 2, IE8 PR1, IE8 RC1

Keeping in mind that IE8 is still in Beta there's an issue in IE8 when scrolling a page up and down vertically and horizontally.

On any page with content (about:tabs) ( ( scroll the page up and down using the mouse wheel, or the scrollbar on the right hand side. (resize window if necesary to obtain scrollbars).

Works like normal, right?

Ok, now zoom in to say 120% or 160% ([CTRL] + [+]) now try scrolling as before.

Woah! what happened? did your performance just tank? on some screens it will take 5-6 seconds to get to the top/bottom.

The good news is that this is just a beta, so there is still plenty of time to fix this. (we hope!)
