overflow scroll bars do not appear on an Android device

If the 'Overflow' property on an HTML object is set to 'scroll', the scroll bars appear in a browser's rendering of the webpage on a desktop computer. Using the same browser (chromium on both devices) on an android device displays no scroll bars.

Mobile browsers generally do not support inline scrollbars.
Note however that this is unrelated to the software. This is standard HTML functionality.

Hi Capell:
Normally it is a bad idea to use scroll bars in a mobile design. Mobile designs use scrolling content and correct breakpoint design.....if you implement scrollbars this is uncommon, so many users even would not find or use them.
