Asked by S. W. on 2015-06-23

hi folks

Apple Macbook Pro 3.1
Microsoft Microsoft IntelliMouse® Explorer

FF is working fine but

Chromium shows the following bug/error:

i have about 20 open tabs. sometimes when i scroll with the scroll wheel chromium doesent scroll the current tab up/down. instead it starts scrolling tabs without pushing any keys at that time!

imho this is a bug.

All I can suggest is report a bug

If your mouse cursor goes over the tab area of the browser then it will scroll them. This is normal behaviour

to be clear the mouse cursor never goes near the tab bar while this happes. mostly its in the center area of the page i'm browsing. i know the feature to change tabs while scrolling over the tab bar, but this ist NOT what im reporting here.

I suggest you report a bug. You can start the process with:

ubuntu-bug chromium-browser

But maybe others can advise

Can you help with this problem?
