Steps to reproduce


Expected: body.scrollWidth is 3000.

Actual: body.scrollHeight is 3000.

IE 11 says body.scrollWidth is 3000. It seems Edge changed treatment of scrollWidth/Height from IE.

    • Sorry for my misleading description. I referred to IE behavior just for your information. This issue happens in Edge, not in IE. I think Edge behavior about this issue doesn’t follow CSSOM View specification.

    • Thank you for the update.  I will investigate it.  :)
