Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:58.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/58.0 Build ID: 20171011100133 Steps to reproduce: - start Firefox with a new profile - create a new tab - optional: on small-resolution screen, remove some components using "New Tab Preferences" Actual results: there is a permanently visible but disabled vertical scroll bar on the left of the window Expected results: there should not be any scroll bar if not needed
the solution has already been pointed out in "duplicate" bug 1418515 -- why does this keep getting pushed back?
Because it's unclear if the fix regresses other bugs, e.g., bug 1400920 https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream/pull/3950#issuecomment-359193323

Potentially a fix is to position the page content independent of whether there's a scrollbar or not. The main thing on the right edge is the pref gear, which could probably just shift over a little? Or perhaps allow the gear to shift when a scrollbar appears but the rest of the page content somehow stays fixed when the scrollbar appears/disappears.
