[resolved] unnecessary vertical scrollbars internet explorer (6 posts)

    wow, I can't shut off vertical scrollbars in the content of posts and pages in internet explorer 9 -- every little item has its own unnecessary scroll bar

    I wish I could blow it off since it works perfectly in firefox and chrome but it is so stupid in ie I can't get away with being lazy. I've added overflow: auto; everywhere and nothing works but I'm managed to turn off scrolling for the whole site and that's no good.

    I'm thinking that I have to get into the more primitive areas of ie but I can't find out where because firebug etc don't work with ie.

    Any ideas on how to trouble shoot this issue would be greatly appreciated--a sloppy ugly work-around is just fine with me.

    do you have a URL so we can look at?
    what are you wrapping your blog posts with?

    Thanks for replying!

    Unfortunately he blog is in maintenance mode cause it's just not ready but here is something wild! if I put a `</div> in front of the page or post the scrollbars go away in internet explorer but then so do the sidebars in firefox. Chrome is ok.

    Is this a clue?

    Thanks again

    it sounds like you have html errors like a tag missing or something

    run it through the w3c validator and see what it coughs up:

    I'm starting to think that it is really stupid, me that is. I'm fixing all the little things
