In Firefox, my site seems to view fine under all circumstances I have tried.
In IE, however if the user has the left side panel open to their favorites or history, etc., this reduces horizontal screen space. If the width of the IE side favorites panel is too wide to allow my site to fit on the screen, what I would like is for my site to automatically go to a horizontal scroll at the bottom rather than adjust the width of the sidebar.
What happens now is my side bar, which has two columns, does one of three things depending on the width of the users screen and how wide they have their favorites side panel set. My site either displays correctly if there is enough horizontal screen space, or displays with some of the longer sidebar text lines bumped down to the next line but still in two columns, or bumps the left sidebar column to the bottom of the page.
Is there a way to make it scroll rather than mess up the sidebar?
