No scrollbars are available to be able to see the remainder of the headers or the mail message itself. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. From the "View" menu enable "Headers->All" 2. Select an e-mail with a large header block. (>24 lines at 1024x768) 3. Ensure that the headers are expanded (The "tree" box has a minus in it.) 4. Collapse the headers to a single line by click the minus into a plus on the tree control. 5. Note that the mail message and some of the headers may be unavailable. Expected Results: Minimally, provide a scrollbar to see the remainder of the headers and perhaps the mail message content as well. Perhaps the mail headers should be confined to be "X" lines high and scrollbars appear when that limit is exceeded. Obviously, the simple workaround is to collapse the "All Headers" view to be able to see the error message. However, this does not enable you to see any mail headers which had been pushed off screen. This is related to bug #208473 (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208473)
Reporter, when you read the duplicate, you'll see that the hidden message body is the least of the problems when the header pane is too tall for the window. See also bug 91662, a similar bug relating to a too-wide header pane. It doesn't appear there is a solution on the horizon for either. Some additional bugs about this problem: bug 56825, bug 151831, bug 166892. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 41994 ***
