horizontal scroll bar not showing up

Unread post by mbraner » 2016-02-26, 23:00

When displaying the page http://vtdigger.org the horizontal scroll bar appears in the installed PM atom/winXP version I use at home, but in PM Portable it does not. This page is a bit quirky overall, but why the difference between portable and installed? Note that I use a display that is not "widescreen", and zoom in (in order to make the text larger). At 100% zoom this page does not need a scroll bar, and one does not show up. But after zooming in, the scroll bar shows up in the installed version of PM, but not in the portable version. This is happening now in PM version 26.1.0 but I saw it earlier in versions 25.x too.

I have not resolved this, but did notice that non-portable Firefox has the same problem on the same PC. Could it be a Windows 7 thing?

It's most likely a web page design thing, not a browser issue.

EDIT: confirmed. This is a case of "responsive design gone wrong".
