Firefox draggable bug

Reported by: mably Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: ui.draggable Version: 1.7
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


We have detected a buggy behavior of draggable.js on our website with

Firefox. After digging a bit, we found that it might be related to

the "overflow-y: scroll" css property we use on the HTML element to

permanently show the vertical scrollbar.

Is it a jqueryui bug or a firefox bug ?

I've put online a modified copy of the draggable sample page to show

the buggy behavior :

Just reduce the size of your Firefox browser window to activate the

vertical scrollbar, scroll down a bit and start dragging.

You'll see the draggable objet jump up the page the same amount you've

scrolled the page down.

For the moment we have temporarily disabled the overflow-y:scroll css


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

jQuery doesn't support offset calculations when the html or body elements are modified in a way that changes the offset of the document element.
