No scroll bar at bottom of IE on new forum

There is no scroll bar displayed with the new forum page when viewing with IE version 8.

IE 8 is last version for XP.

Hi jerrym,

did you try to disable the mouseover menu's to get the edit button?

Uncheck the box "Display menus dynamically with mouse over"

 

Just as idea ...

 

hth,

Stephan

There is no scroll bar at bottom for any browser.  :-(

This means you have to have a full width window or move the window off to the left.

Dennis & - I can see a horizontal scroll bar when I'm viewing the site w/ IE8.


Can either of you provide a screen shot, and the specific version # of IE8 you're using?

And that's the only browser that has one.  Neither safari, chrome nor firefox has a horizontal scroll bar.

Only firefox's IETab has one.



I first noticed this on firefox 2 last year when BSC moved over.  It took me a long while to notice things were chopped off.

Hmm, I can't see one on IE8 on XP SP3 either.  The version is 8.0.6001.18702.

Yes, firefox is now working fine.  I should have spoke up a year ago.  ;-)
