I found out that when the page layout forces a minimal width of the page (for
example, by means of <TABLE WIDTH=...> or style sheets) and the browser window
is narrower than this minimal width, you cannot scroll the page all the way to
the right. You may test it for example on page. Set the
browser window to LESS than 800x600, so that right part of the page is not
visible, and then move the horizontal scrollbar all the way to the right. The
page is still truncated from the right and you can't scroll any further. (I made
a screen dump of this, which is available at
I see the following errors in javascript console:

Error: Error in parsing value for property 'padding-left'.  Declaration dropped.

Line: 129

and Error: Error in parsing value for property 'padding-right'.  Declaration

Line: 130

The page is extremely slow in rendering/scrolling

Confirming left/right scrollbar doesn't show 
(the pages work as you intend in Opera/IE)

I have noticed some fact that may be somehow connected with this problem. Even
on properly formatted pages where you CAN scroll all the way to the right, in
the far right position of the horizontal scrollbar the page contents appears
just adjacent to the vertical scrollbar on the right. There is a margin of
several pixels on the left, between the left edge of browser window and the page
contents, but there isn't even a single pixel space between page contents and
the right side of the window. Try it on my PNG image with the screendump: set
the window narrower than the PNG itself and scroll all the way to the right. The
right edge of the PNG just touches the right edge of the window. In my opinion,
there should be a small margin, symmetrical to the one on the left, as in all
other browsers.
BTW. I didn't set the OS field by mistake when doing the first submission;
actually I have tried this on Win98.
