Yes, this is one of ‘those’ posts, about how to fix/workaround the issue of SharePoint having the Body set to scroll=”no” causing issues with scrolling. As a recap for those unfamiliar with this design decision from Microsoft it causes a few side effects. This is all to support the ribbon by the way and every method I’ve seen to workaround it in the past has had bad effects on the ribbon.
- Chrome OSX and Safari OSX have significant issues with scrolling on SharePoint 2010 Pages
- Scroll=”no” is for fixing the ribbon and all sub-elements to the page in the right location. This includes buttons, mouse over information and menus. Not something to be trifled with.

if($.browser.webkit || $.browser.safari)
//handle scrolling on less supported browsers like chrome
var h = $(‘#s4-workspace’).height();
$(‘#s4-workspace’).css(“height”, “auto”).css(“overflow-y”, “auto”).css(“min-height”, h);
//handle normal ribbon rendering and behavior on fully supported browsers
