While this does appear to be true, if you look at the official documentation here:

You'll see .scroll() as a trigger is not supported. That said, I would fix it if it was an easy fix but it appears in FireFox (and Safari doesn't work so perhaps there too or some other problem) the onscroll is set as an attribute without a property. So when the code checks for the onscroll property it doesn't exist. The fix would be to use getAttribute() (plus much research and testing) and at this point I don't see a compelling argument to make the change.

If you disagree you can reopen the bug with your thoughts.

BTW, just in case someone decides to fix it, while I was looking in to the bug I found a possible fix in .trigger() and have attached it as a possible patch. It is not thoroughly tested by any means.
