My horizontal scroll bar has disappeared

Posted

I no longer have a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the page. It disappeared a couple of days ago. I have not made any changes to my settings and am totally puzzled. I did try changing my persona to one I had previously used, and that made no difference. I have Windows XP and have used Firefox for quite some time.

It is possible that the screen is too high and that the status bar and scroll bar fall off at the bottom.

Open the system menu via Alt+Space and see if you can resize that window.
If that works then close Firefox to save that setting.

This can also be a problem with the file localstore.rdf in the Profile Folder.

Delete localstore.rdf or rename the file to localstore.rdf.sav in the Profile Folder to test if the file is corrupted.

(caution: do not delete the localstore.rdf file in the Firefox program installation folder)

Thank you! This seems to have corrected the problem, although I am puzzled as to what may have created it. I would not want to do that again.

I can't imagine that you do not have a Space bar because I see spaces in your typed text.

You can always try to delete the localstore.rdf file to reset the window size and position.
