On Win95,using M10 (build 1999100618) - 1. Start with the sidebar at its default width. Shorten the height of the browser window, if necessary, until the sidebar has a vertical scroll-bar. Plan on opening some new browser windows as the resizing handles used to reproduce these problems dissappear unbidden. 2. Click-drag the sidebar resizing handle to the left, in increments of roughly the width of the vertical scroll-bar repeatedly. To reproduce the problem, the resizing must be done with the middle, patterned portion of the resizing handle (the part between the two left-facing arrows). If the handle is clicked anywhere else, the side-bar cannot be made too narrow to display all of the "reload customize..." text at the top of the side-bar . A. Most, but not all, of the time, the vertical scroll-bar will disappear once the side-bar is shrunk to about half its default width. Once that happens , the resizing handle will only be displayed, and will only be active, in the regions beside the headers for the side-bar sections (What's Related, Flashes, Tinderbox...) . These remnants of the resizing handle are still active, and if the side-bar is made wider again, the normal resizing handle will reappear. B. Other times the scroll-bar will remain, and the resizing handle will completely disappear. At this point the side-bar will remain active, but cannot be re-sized by any mousing actions. The side-bar vertical scroll-bar will remain, and will work, but it will be displayed at less than its normal width. If it is clicked on, it will be displayed at its normal width, obscuring part of the main browsing window. This visual defect remains until a gecko repaint is forced. 3. The 2.B. behaviour can be reliably reproduced by doing the following. Carefully resize the browser window so that the middle, patterned portion of the side-bar resizing handle is vertically positioned so that no part of it is beside the side-bar section headers mentioned in 2.A. This is possible if the toolbars are in their default state, and the browser window is about 675-700 pixels tall. At that height, the patterned portion will be between the headers labeled "Flashes" and "Tinderbox". Resize the side-bar smaller as described in 2. above, and the 2.B. behaviour will happen, but never the 2.A. behaviour.
None of the problems reported above happen with M11 build 1999101109 on WinNT. The sidebar can be resized to any width at all and both the handle and the sidebar vertical scrollbar are properly displayed at all widths, even widths too small to bother with.
