I'm guessing this is caused by the recent scroll frame changes, please reassign if I'm mistaken. STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 1. Start Mozilla and open a Mail composition window 2. enter 5-6 recipients to trigger the vertical scrollbar 3. scroll to the end 4. scroll to the top ACTUAL BEHAVIOUR: An unnecessary horizontal scrollbar is created. 100% reproducible. (the view is blank in the scrolled-to region to the right). PLATFORMS & BUILDS TESTED: Mozilla nightly trunk build 2005-04-08-05 on Linux (GTK1)
I can't reproduce this but maybe I'm not doing the right steps. Screenshot?
I'm still not reproducing this. I tried Modern and that wasn't it. Looks like you'll have to do this yourself Mats :-)
You might want to try the patch in bug 289431 first though...
Bug still occurs, 2005-04-12-05 Linux GTK1 (which includes the fix for bug 289431). I can also reproduce in a fresh debug build on Linux (GTK2). It seems that a precondition for the bug to appear is that the auto-complete dropdown menu has triggered. The following sequence always reproduces the bug for me: 1. open a Mail compositon window 2. click on the first address field and type a character that triggers the auto-complete dropdown menu, when the menu appears type ESC to close it, now type '@' followed by RETURN 3. type '@' followed by RETURN seven times (or enough to trigger a vertical scrollbar). 4. scroll to the top (mouse wheel or kbd) => horizontal scrollbar appears Another problem that I have seen is that when resizing the height of the address list using the horizontal splitter there is sometimes a blank area *above* the address field visible at the top (see Screenshot #3). That could be an unrelated problem though.
I'm seeing a regression between linux trunk 2004071405 and 2004071506

this worksforme with builds since 20050415 (bug 285449, I guess)
WFM, 2005-04-16-05 Linux GTK1, the horizontal scrollbar does not appear. Resizing the address list using the splitter is now broken though. I filed bug 290681 on that. I'm keeping this bug open until I can verify that both problems reported here are gone after bug 290681 is fixed.

WFM, 2005-04-18-05 Linux GTK1. It seems this bug was fixed by bug 290464. I filed bug 290865 on the gap noted in comment 7 and bug 290861 on another issue with the layout of the Mail recipient list. -> WORKSFORME

(well it was probably bug 285449 that fixed this as Andrew noted)
