Default Cant scroll frame in browser

I'm starting to use a web interface (java from what I can tell) to stream my tv to my phone. Everything works great, except the channel list is it's own frame, and I cant scroll it. I can only see the first 15 out of 100 channels. I've searched google and cant find any information about this. I've also tried Skyfire and Dolphin, but with no luck. Does anyone know a workaround to scroll within a frame? The iphone and ipad can scroll within a frame by using two fingers in stead of one. There must be a workaround for android.

I'm having the exact same problem with my son's school website. I'm on an Evo with 2.2 and neither the stock browser or dolphin can scroll the page with frames.

Yea I dont know why are "smart" phones cant scroll a frame. What I had to do was save the site to my computer, and rework the HTML to expand the frame, then hose the redesigned site on my server so my Evo can view it. But this probably wont work for you because I know the contentt of my site will never change.

I think this deserves a bump.....a huge bump.

I experience problems like this in my web browsing on Android phones all the time.

I fixed my problem by making a bookmarklet that took the content out of the frame by basically redriecting me to the site inside the frame dinamically.

The source can be found inside the mastering astronomy script by the user "oldarney" I would post it but the site userscripts.org is down right now.

Sounds great....but I need a little more instruction. I know how to use/install userscripts on Firefox on my PC....but I have no idea how to implement this on my Phone (Droid Incredible).

Can you give me a little more help? For example, I've never worked with Bookmarklets before.

Code:
javascript:if(window.location.href.search(/frame=banner&*/)!=-1){window.location=window.location.href.replace(/frame=banner&*/,"")}else{pickies=document.getElementById('partpane').style;void(pickies.display='inline');void(pickies.height='auto');void(pickies.color='green');void(document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].style.overflow="visible")};
thats the code I used to break a specific site out of a frame. basically it checks to see if the sit rendered is a frame, if it is redirect to the site without the frame attribute enabled. It also makes the text green to let me know that the site has been jailbroken.

now: Id be interested in making a script that seaches for iframes and gives me the site within, if multiple iframes are found, ask the user which one he'd like to go to.

If you plan to use this on a mastering astronomy assignment, just copy the code as a url on a bookmark... you'd have to make a bookmark of a normal site, then edit the bookmark so you can paste this code on the url field... don't ask why, its a bug. speaking of which, I have one on my monitor.

It's now Feb 2012, and this issue still isn't solved. One cannot scroll frames, which means that probably a majority of web pages can't be visisted with many web browsers for Android. I have tried three that malfunction. However, I found one that works, namely Opera Mini for Android.

I realize the last post was almost one year ago, but I think it's worth noting, for those finding this thread via a web search, that the current versions of Chrome and Firefox on Android both support scrolling within frames. Unfortunately, the popular Dolphin browser does not.

the "problem" is that frames are actually something which they want to phase out in future HTML versions, therefore i think not many browser developers are paying attention to. also, frames are a pain in the *ss for search engines. site designers should just stop creating pages containing frames
