How can I prevent the time icon from obscuring the down scroll arrow?

XP scroll bar

I think that only happens if you have it set to Autohide the taskbar.  If you let the taskbar be there all of the time then Firefox should automatically allow for it. Close the browser... Go to the full post »

I wonder if others have seen this annoyance and whether there is a fix that I am missing.

 

With my desktop with XP and using the Firefox browser I frequently find that the lower arrow on the right-hand  vertical positioning bar is obscured by the horizontal bar at the bottom of the screen and , in particular, by the display of  the time. When that happens I can’t read the lower part of a displayed document. Continued clicking usually solves the problem but it is frustrating.

 

I feel sure there is a simple fix. Can someone help me?

 

Thanks.    ....batpark

Close the browser

1.

Right-click the Start button, and then click Properties.

2.

On the Taskbar tab, unselect the Auto-hide the taskbar check box.

3. OK.

 

Now start your browser.  Does that help?
