The UI page: Preferences -> General Information 
does not fit into the space available for the dialog box when I use ion3 in
1280x1024 mode. Unlike the other tabs this page is not inside a scrollbox. So
the lower options are overlayed by the ok button.

In ion3 the height of popup windows is always have the height of the window, so
I can't make the window bigger as a workaround.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the ION3 windowmanager at a 1280x1024 (or lower) resolution.
2. Open firefox
3. open the preferences -> general page.

Actual Results:  
Lower part of the general setup items is invisible.

Expected Results:  
Display a scrollbar.
Preferences window was reworked recently, please check if the latest nightly
builds still have this problem.

I still have this bug in Deerpark alpha, for example the security part of
preferences still is "missing" text/part of buttons. I'm using KDE 3.4
Depends on: 283697
Version: unspecified → Trunk
The "General" panel is sized properly with the latest Deer Park Linux build. 
Also, in repsonse to the reporters expectation of a scrollbar appearing; We do
not want that, the Panel should be large enough to display all of the Pref content.

Please refer to bug 284713 for Pref Panels on Linux not displaying all the
content in the default panel size.
