  • showing scrollbars regardless?

    I'm using a divular layout and when the scrollbar does not show, when the page is not long enough to need to show, it shows fine, but when it is long enough for scrollbars, it shows up and it makes my div's ''Bounce'' around. It's not 'killing me' but I don't really like it bouncing around. Is there a way where I can show the scrollbars, or at least an inactive one, at all times?

    IE does this, but I'm using Firefox.

    Thanks

    Don't be offended by this, but you have tried adding overflow:scroll; to the elements in question, haven't you?

      No, add that to the body tag?

        I think I was unclear

        In this first screenshot (firefox) no scrollbar is necessary

        In this second screenshot (ie) no scrollbar is necessary, but an incative one shows up.
        http://stevie.f2o.org/images/noie.PNG

        How can I make my page to where in Firefox, the inactive scrollbar shows up regardless like IE so the *bouncing* will not occur?

        Thanks

            aaahhhh, that old chestnut again...
            Sorry man, no hope. It's built into the browser to do that.
            I ran into the same prob when I made my site.

            *edit: but adding overflow:scroll to the body is worth a try none the less...

              Surely this is hardcoded into Firefox... if you want it to appear on your machine then add this to your user.css file:
              Code:
              scrollbar { display: block !important }

                  Why not set the height of the page to like, one or two percent over one hundred? There shouldn't be much scrolling, and you'll have your scrollbar.

                    body { height: 96.10%; }
                    gives it a scrollbar that doesn't scroll.

                    Thanks, Paul.

                      But what happens when the content extends past that point? Or if the user enlarges their font size? Does it break? Or does it scroll?

                            Lol, thanks. But don't forget to hack down for IE:
                            Code:
                            html body { height: 96.1% }
                            html>body { min-height: 96.1%; height: auto }
                            Or pick your favourite hack (_height, * html body etc)
