Scrollbar disappears

  • I love the theme, but I’m having a serious problem. When you leave the website open in a tab and come back to it, the scrollbar disappears and you are frozen at one spot. It restores only if you reload the page. I’m using safari. (http://www.paulalerner.net)

    please help.

    Hi Paula,

    The only device i have safari on right now is an iPad and i was not able to reproduce the problem. What device does this happen on for you?

    It might not be till later tonight that i can test this more because i have family in town for Thanksgiving but i will try to figure this out for you.


    Hi Brad,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I tested it on a few browsers. On Firefox, the fancy scrollbar doesn’t even appear, so it’s not a problem. On Chrome, the problem doesn’t seem to manifest itself. And I just tried it on the iPad, and as you said it’s fine too.

    The problem is on Safari on the macbook Pro. And I tried two different macs.
    Let me know if you can figure it out.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    May you state the browser and browser version in which the problem exists?

    Safari, Version 5.1.7 (6534.57.2)

    If you want to for now you can open up style.css in the editor and near the top you will see 4 styles for webkit-scroll bar and you can delete them, you will lose the fancy effect but it should work for you until i can try to figure it out. You can see the 4 styles here between lines: 93 – 110 GitHub

    Great .Thanks Brad.

    I just “commented” out that code for the scrollbar and now it’s a regular scrollbar. Let me know if you figure it out.
