When the size of the pane was around 4-5 lines, the scroll bar disappeared, buy you could still see the blocks at the end of the scroll bar. When you get to 1-2 lines viewable lines, your scroll bar is gone, and you are unable to move around in the email to read anything. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

Bug 184998 is the root cause of this, and of bug 180144. It is not true that you cannot scroll the mail; as long as any of the message is visible, you can put the focus on it and use PageUp/PageDown. See also the somewhat related bug 41994 / bug 167405.

My point is that you shouldnt have to go and use the keyboard if you made your messave view area to small.
The behavior of the disappearing scroll bar or at least the end points is different than the mail list window just above the message. If you resize the message list window to as small as you can go (no message list is visible) you can still see that there is or should be a scroll bar endpoint (though the graphic for that is a bit under/over the message window border). If you resize the message window down till both the scroll bar endpoints touch, beyond that they both disappear. This behavior isn't serious unless you are aware of what happens to the message window scroll bar when a message comes in with some very large header (like when headers->all is on) and your message doesn't "appear" scrollable. It is a bit shocking for a user and mostly annoying to the rest of us. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/2003102804
