The syntax .attr('scrolling','no') to iframe doesn't work in IE 6-8 and Opera (works ok in Firefox 2-3 and Chrome).

Iframe remains with the previous setting [scrolling = auto]

Apparently, IE does not allow JS to change this attribute on an iframe after it has been created no matter what. In order to fix this, we would need to create the iframe element or something. test case

It doesn't seem practical to recreate the iframe in order to change the scrolling attribute. If someone has an idea for a reasonable patch that doesn't impact performance, feel free to contact us by reopening the ticket. If this problem is affecting you, register on Trac and vote for a patch, above.
