Disappearing Scroll in Firefox
In Firefox, my instructor and student grade sheet no longer displays the horizontal scroll bar to bring more data extended off to the right of the page into view. I have an image attached where the scroll bar should be present. This begin in May sometime, and I'm not sure how to fix. I have tried re-installing fresh a few times, and removed any custom settings that might have been in place. Any and all help would be VERY appreciated as one of colleagues is super frustrated and I would love to find out an answer for both him and myself.

Here is an image / example. This page is so critical to me.
In Windows you use the system scroll bars.
Version 99 introduced 'overlay' scroll bars.
The issue is this: the Firefox browser 99+ with my other colleagues' machines works just fine and displays the horizontal scroll bar from that grade summary page (the prior image I attached, showing it is missing for me). I know of one other person using Ubuntu and the latest version of Firefox, who is also missing the horizonal scroll from that page. I can't figure it out; everyone else has no issues at all getting the 'table' to apply the horizontal scroll bar, so they can see the data off to the right that is not visible otherwise (but does exist, because you can do a CSV export and see all of the data exists on the page, but can't be viewed because of the missing scroll bar). Hopefully that all makes sense.

INTERESTINGLY enough, I google searched that preference (since I didn't see the specific wording you used as a setting that can be controlled in Firefox) and realized that Microsoft 11 software has an accessibility feature that is available in the visual effects controls, including one that says "always show scrollbars" and as soon as I set that to "YES" (for whatever reason it was set to no...maybe by default) and went back into Expert TA's website and visited the grade sheet page, THE SCROLL BAR IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the inspiration and help.
