Anyone use a laptop for this site.  Seems the scrolling function is messed up but only on this page, no other site.

Nope, I used to be able to double tap and then scroll down but now it has zero scroll function.  Worked fine a few days ago and now scrolling is a pain

Are you using an external mouse say via a USB hub or the touch pad on your laptap?

My touch pad works fine its the external mouse that wont scroll unless you double click the grab bar.

Mine used to work but now I have to triple click the bar.  I don't know it just seems something changed.  This is the only site I have to triple click to get the scroll bar to work

It doesn't have to do with a laptop or not, it is the browser you are using. Update IE to the latest version and see if that helps.

I am on a laptop using IE 9.0.8112 and the scroll bar works just fine for me, I click on the scroll bar and drag it up and down without having to double click on it. There has to be something else installed on your laptop (like some add-on to your browser) that is not causing it to function.
