Yes, even if it is just sitting on the newest post it will stop auto-scrolling after a while. Happens regardless of the message content. The page is fully loaded and just sitting there, as new messages come in it eventually stops scrolling with them.kasimi wrote:This sure sounds like a bug. To be clear, this happens even if you don't touch the scrollbars? How often does that happen? Is there any special content (BBCode, image, content from another extension) in those messages that stop the auto-scrolling?
Although a different thing I noticed was when large content like videos or iframes are embedded it scrolls up when they load in on a page refresh. The messages load in with the scroll bar at the bottom, but when the above messages expand when their content loads it pulls the scrollbar halfway up to them. Which is a bit annoying is all.
Edit: I see you've got some test code up, I'll try to check that out and let you know what happens.
Edit2: I copied the test code over and it seems to have fixed the autoscrolling when the user is looking at the newest messages and they don't contain embedded content. It wasn't working at all for certain users before, and is now. Embedded content still seems to break the auto-scrolling though. It scrolls to the initial bottom of the message, but once the message expands it doesn't keep going.
Edit3: Works with youtube videos and twitch streams with the s9e/mediaembed embedding, but not with say a long tumblr post.
