View Full Version : Mouse wheel scrolling slow to start in Safari 4 on a Mac... any ideas?

I am experiencing no scrolling below a certain scroll velocity on both mouse and trackpad on my Macbook in Safari 4.

I have the mouse wheel events working on my mac through the javascript bridge from http://blog.pixelbreaker.com/flash/as30-mousewheel-on-mac-os-x/. I also have normalized the delta in my actionscript to be -2 if below 0, and +2 if above 0. Testing the delta on the javascript side, the mouse wheel at the slowest I can scroll it reads well above or below 0, and the trackpad reads around .025 to -.025... so I'm wondering why is it that Safari doesn't see this until higher speeds?

Scrolling works, I just have to give the wheel some speed before it kicks in. It works perfectly in Firefox.

Any ideas on why this is happening?
