From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 BuildID: 2002031104 In earlier builds of mozilla it was possible to scle the preferences dialog to show all content. In the actual build this is no longer possible, so one is unable to reach some elements by mouse (reaching by keyboard works, but one doesn't see what one's doing ;-) Maybe the problem is my alternate system font (Verdana instead of mssansserif) but i'm not sure. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.open preferences 2.go to message display 3.and watch Actual Results: i cannot see the whole dialog content Expected Results: show me all of the content ;-) maybe it is a good idea to provide scrollbars for huge dialogs?
reporter- I'm 99% sure your bug is a dupe of the one marked. [The short version, since that bug has a lot of comments and we shouldn't duplicate the effort teasing out what's going on: Scrollbars aren't supposed to be necessary, because the dialog size is supposed to be calculated to fit everything. But we have a problem calculating the proper size of the prefs dialog with non-default fonts, in particular with small fonts. So the solution for you, believe it or not, may be to -increase- your font size, or try MS Sans Serif. If this doesn't help, your bug may not actually be a dupe of that one, so we'll reopen; but I suspect that this is what's going on.] *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 86478 ***
