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

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.

Wouldn't it be possible to use overflow: hidden; until the page is fully loaded ?

Let me clarify. Why can't we hide the scrollbar until the page is loaded and use overflow: auto; (display the scrollbar as needed) when the page is loaded ?

Would solve bug 1400920 and this too.

I don't mean to annoy or waste anyone's time, just coming back to this one because it's highly visible to users (especially if they have a dark theme on Windows). To anyone reading this, if you're too busy to take this bug, can you ask someone else that might want to get this fixed? It's been open for too long considering how visible it is to users
