I suspect this is happening after bug 151375 was fixed. It looks like the scrollbar is created for the outline that is painted at the right of that image link. I don't think this is good behavior. I would normally not expect to see suddenly scrollbars when I focus something. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

I'm not sure what, if anything, we should do about this. The scrollbars are appearing so that you can see the outline that appears around the A element (which has been deliberately sized as big as the viewport). We could conceivably make scrollbars only appear when there's overflow *excluding* outlines, but that would be a) painful to implement and b) wouldn't look good in some situations, I think. I'll attach a testcase.
Created attachment 160429 [details] testcase that wants outline to cause scrollbars If you size your window just right (so that making it any narrower adds a horizontal scrollbar), then tab to the image, you'll see that we add a scrollbar so you can scroll right to see the right outline edge. If we didn't do that, I think this testcase would suffer.
Created attachment 160464 [details] Testcase This testcase shows that also right aligned links can cause a scrollbar, when focusing those links. I knew this bug was/is controversial. So if this is going to be INVALID, WONTFIX, that's fine with me. > If we didn't do that, I think this testcase would suffer. Personally, I don't think the testcase would suffer. I don't care that much about the right focus outline. If the image was at the top-left, you would not see a top and left focus outline either (but that's probably a bug. I don't know the bug number right now, but I think I have seen a bug about this issue)
The testcase in comment 1 would be fixed by not creating scrollbars when the overflow is in a direction to which we can't scroll, which I think is the right thing to do.
Why can't you scroll right in testcase #1?

Another page that is affected by this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/mainframe.shtml?http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/index.shtml?button I can't click on the "View Compact Size" link at the right bottom of the page, a horizontal scrollbar gets in the way.
Note that this is basically the same as bug 286368. I'd like to do something about this but I don't know what to do.
Fwiw, this makes it impossible to click on the "Photo Gallery>>>" link on this page: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2007-09/19/content_6753266.htm
