Thanks @ryley.randall I appreciate the input. I have been aware of this technique, it is been using that, but had a strange instance of it not working properly after having checked exhaustively prior and confirming it functioning correctly.
I believe the change in functionality occurred when my repeating group expanded causing the page height to expand beyond its original settings. I messed around with a bit after adjusting the page and the settings on the floating group. I essentially had to remove the collapsable group at the bottom and replace it with a group that was always fixed height of 10 to provide spacing.
Originally all of the floating group were scrollable once it was loaded, however, now I have one that is not scrollable but after expanding the menu items it begins to scroll as the original contents are not as long as the element itself.
