Missing Scrollbars In Mac Firefox 3
Thanks to twistedonion on MetaFilter I was alerted to an odd quirk which can result in Firefox 3 for OS X losing its scrollbars, making ‘below the fold’ content inaccessible.
After some investigation it turns out that any page containing
<meta http-equiv="msthemecompatible" content="no" />
triggers this problem. It may get fixed before Firefox 3 gets out of beta, but if you’ve ever used that tag (it makes IE render form elements in a more neutral way) you’ll want to either remove it or keep an eye on the situation.
