Browser displays no slider bar to side-scroll if a page is oversized.


I'm having a problem with the new Firefox 4 and how it displays websites that are oversized. This new browser has a lack of a side scroll bar at the bottom of the page (or top) that allows me to view the whole page.

Also, I can't have my Fonts set at low 18 because my eyesight gets blurry quickly if it's that size. Anyone else have this problem and know how to remedy it? Thanks.

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.
