Steps to reproduce:

Add enough custom containers to your inital list until overflowing your display vertically.

Actual results:

except you get a very long list of containers you should notice there is not scroll bar to go down to bottom containers (not visible).

Expected results:

Give a scroll bar to allow us to go down.
Not a priority bug because:
- I don't think there are lot of people who have as much containers 
- It is possible to scroll from the arrows keys of the keyboard

Also it could be very nice to have an option to sort all containers or even dynamicaly change position of each one by a drag on drop on the configuration page.
For now, I made a script to sort containers alphabetically from the json file in profile folder but it is not realy ideal.
Just for your information, the very trivial script is :

function sortByKey(array, key) {
return array.sort(function(a, b) {
  if (!b[key]) {
    return -1;
  } else if (!a[key]) {
    return 1;
  } else {
    return a[key].localeCompare(b[key]); 

containers = require('/home/user/.mozilla/firefox/xxxx.default/containers.json');
containers.identities = sortByKey(containers.identities, 'name');

Could you please provide (attach) a minimal, self-contained testcase?

honestly, I am not sure to understand what you ask.

Here is a screenshot when I click on "containers" icon (so I am at top of the list)

Here is a screenshot when I go down at the bottom of the containers list (via arrows keys because there is no scroll bar to do that and it is the object of this issue)

Please if you need anything other, tell me but give me explictely what you need.
This issue seems very simple so I thought you did not need screenshot but may be my explanation was bad ..
