User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Log onto the following Webpage, and you'll note that Firefox is not providing a Horizontal Scroll Bar on the bottom of the page.  Internet Explorer does.

http://hamilton.bargaincity.ca/

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log onto http://hamilton.bargaincity.ca/
2. No Horizontal Scroll Bar is provided.
3.


Expected Results:  
There should be a Horizontal Scroll Bar.
http://hamilton.bargaincity.ca/css/main.css specifies:

html{
	overflow:-moz-scrollbars-vertical;
}

which (in Gecko based browsers) maps to:

html{
	overflow-x: hidden;
        overflow-y: scroll;
}

which inhibits the viewport horizontal scrollbar.

There's no bug in Firefox here, we're only doing what the style author
specified.  Removing the style rule seems the right thing to do.

How come the Horizontal Bar works fine on Internet Explorer?

Ever confirmed: true
"overflow:-moz-scrollbars-vertical" is ignored by IE and other browsers.
