No page scrollbar when changing "overflow" on :hover

Permalink | Opera, Safari | 2 comments
Reported on 8 May 2006

When changing overflow from auto to visible for an element with fixed width, Safari 2.0.3 correctly hides the scrollbar onmouseover, but it doesn't create a page scrollbar.

Opera has similar problems.

To make Safari repaint the page you have to additionally change e.g. the positioning, formatting or dimensions of that element.
