Are you referring to the presence of a horizontal scroll bar in the SpamCop webmail interface? It's not clear from your message whether you're referring to webmail, the SpamCop reporting site, or these forums, all which are part of SpamCop.

If you're referring to the webmail, I think the problem will be solved when a newer version of the software is implemented. It's currently being beta tested.

OK, thanks. Yes, even at high resolutions (I use 1280 x 1024), there's a horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of www.spamcop.net, and I think you're right...all that's needed is to tweak the "width" statements in the code a bit. The problem is, the person responsible for that page probably doesn't visit these forums, so maybe someone with an "inside track" can forward this to the right eyes.

The right people would be deputies<at>spamcop.net who can get it to Julian. It would probably be best for someone actiually experiencing the problem to describe what they are seeing and what versions of FireFox they have tried.

OK, Steven, I'll do it when I have time. I'm using FF 1.0.3 on WinXP, and I imagine that it's affecting at least all the Windows-based FF users, if not more platforms. To clarify, it's not that we're having to scroll left and right...the horizontal scroll bar appears at the bottom of the window, but there's no scroll room available, so it's most likely due to some conflicting width values in the page coding.

Exactly as David said.

Screen Shot:

Well its a simple fix.

Just change in 05look.css:


body {
	background-color: #E1E1E1;
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
	margin: 0px;
}

To:


body {
	background-color: #E1E1E1;
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
	margin: 1px;
}

So now it looks fine in IE and FF if u do that.

Or of course if u still want zero margin in ie thats easy to do using a java scri_pt if statement.

Well for the moment this is how I have fixed the issue. :)


if (document.domain.indexOf("spamcop.net")!=-1) { document.write('&lt;style type="text/css" media="all"&gt; body {margin: 1px;}; &lt;\/style&gt;');};

That's not an offer, it's a promotion. The link make the switch today leads to a page which states 'To download Firefox, go to getfirefox.com and select "Free Download"', and getfirefox.com redirects as follows http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/, which does not contain "Free Download". One nice fairly tight vicious circle.

I just checked the same link I offered, but clicked on the "Free Download" link (green box at top right) ... killed the generated file download attempt ...???

hanks, but those mirrors don't seem to have a version 1.1 yet.

I didn't see any reference to 1.1 in the nightly feeds either ...????

But if you want to try .... http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/

Thanks, I see the problem now - that green box relies on java scri_pt to determine which version of Firefox to offer, I configured my firewall in a paranoid fashion to disable java scri_pt for all but specifically allowed sites, and consequently I didn't get to seen that green box. It would be nice if there was something on that page that indicated that java scri_pt support was required for easy downloading, and what to do if you still want to download Firefox but don't support java scri_pt.

So what you really meant here was what, 1.1a2? 1.1 Final isn't estimated to be due out until September. Conventions have been to only refer to final products with simple numeric designators, and to refer to alpha and beta products as such.
