Bug Description

Hi, I've found that when I have any tabs open, Epiphany's scrollbar grows a
border and I cannot throw my mouse to the right edge of the screen to grab it.
However, if there are no tabs, this border is gone.

Thanks for your bug. What version of epiphany/ubuntu do you use? Is your window
maximized? Is the border drawed? Could you make a screenshot of the issue?

Almost there...

On Xfce4.8... and Epiphany 3.0.4 and Gedit 3.2.3, I cannot GRAB or DRAG the scrollbar with the primary mouse button. However, on a mouse button down along the right edge of the screen on a maximized Epiphany or Gedit window, the app will PageUp / PageDown depending on where I click (mouse down).

But the standard, expected full control of the scrollbar (i.e. drag) is not there.

On a long document, try scrolling to the bottom so it cannot page down. Now bring the mouse to the right edge, but somewhere along the drag handle.

Expected: Without pressing button, the scrollbar handle should darken slightly to show the mouse is over it. Then holding down mouse will cause drag handle to change color (e.g. darken more) and allow dragging.

Actual: Mouse over (at edge) does not change handle color. Drag handle does not change color. No dragging is initiated.

I should add that MIDDLE mouse click/drag works as expected and consistent with other apps: scrollbar is taken to the mouse position and drags as long as middle mouse button is held down.

Sorry, comment 6 behavior is for when there is only ONE tab.

MULTIPLE tabs on Epiphany Browser 3.0.4 still has the no-op border: right edge mouse does not do anything with the scrolling at all.
