missing Horizontal scroll bar in Side Bar of Firefox 4

When I use the FF4 Side Bar for my Bookmarks, I cannot see many of my Sub-Folders or read long link names because there is no Horizontal Scroll Bar. Instead, I must manually widen the Side Bar to see the longer link names or expanded Sub Fldr content. I do have a vertical scroll bar. There is no Horizontal Bookmark in the "Show All Bookmarks" either. I would think there would be a Horizontal Scroll Bar too for expanding the Trees. In CSS usage, that's practically basic Web Page design.

Firefox has never had a horizontal scrollbar in the Sidebar by default, but there have been a few Sidebar extensions that added that feature.

CSS standards or basics for web page design aren't really applicable to browser UI design; apples and oranges, IMO.

If that's the way it's supposed to work then, thanks for the info. :-)

Can you name any add-on extensions that provide this enhancement?

I'm using Firefox 7.0.1 and I cannot find any in AMO.
