You could do that, but IMHO you shouldn't. First you may run into some
Firefox/Mozilla quirks with events over scrollable areas, and second:
Isn't it hard enough for the user to deal with the menus? Shall they
struggle with scrollbars in the menu too?

If you want my advice: Rethink the navigation structure. Keep it
simple and use breadcrumps.
