Why have I got a random scroll bar

(23 Posts)

at the side of my page? confused

it's not causing me any problems it's just irratating the feck out of me as it's untidy grin

I'm on a Mac running Firefox

I've closed and reopened Firefox and it's still there

please remove it or I will have to stop Mumsnetting and do housework.....


I'm using Firefox on a MacAir and have no random bars.

Is this in addition to the one that is always at the side to enable you to scroll down if you're using a mouse?

Are you on an iPad?

I have it too. I am using internet explorer on a laptop and MN classic.

not on an ipad

because I have no life am a bit bored I've taken a screen shot


Can I join the random scroll bar lurgy clan?

Mine doesn't look like that pic. Mine is vertical.

I'm on an iPad , and it's all gone a bit small , can hardly read it < old woman emoticon >

oooh it's the attack of the mutant scroll bars

They dont even do anything...I thought I might have been accepted into the elite secret-thread-on-the-left club, but no....

I have been forced into doing some housework as it is making me irrationally angry

Yes, mine is vertical too, but I have no idea how to do a screen shot!!

I have one - left hand side on desk top PC

I have made my mutant scroll bar more Mumsnetty now

just in case you couldn't see it properly

<must get a life>

Mine's all weird too. I have a scroll bar at the top left hand side and the entire left side is blank.

Thanks all

There does seem to be something up somewhere - Tech is going to take a look. Sorry for the annoyance.

Hi, Can you let us know if this is still happening, and if so if it's on all pages or just some. Thanks, and sorry for the trouble.

It's gone now.....I quite miss it

<never satisfied>

I'm missing mine now. Please can you add it to the customise options as a choice of 'Mumsnet Squiffy'.

Ta muchly.

There's got to be a joke about camping and extra bars in there somewhere...

Thanks for the update, we'll pass it on.
