User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0
Build ID: 20120420145725

Steps to reproduce:

Viewed the attached ff12_datepicker.html

Actual results:

Horizontal scroll bar didn't appear even though table overflowed page width until one of the jQuery datepicker elements was activated.

Viewed same page in Chrome, IE and FF11. Paged worked as expected in those browsers.

Expected results:

Horizontal scroll bar should have appeared when page loaded.

This is possibly a dupe of 750323.

The jquery.datepicker script inserts a <div> with style:
.ui-helper-hidden-accessible { position: absolute; left: -99999999px; }

Reducing the left offset by a magnitude makes the scrollbar display.

So this is basically a dupe of bug 749935.

I've just experienced this as well. Use of jQuery UI Datepicker on page, prevents Firefox from displaying horizontal scrollbar -- needed in this app's UI for viewing/editing a very wide table.

Thanks 'iop' for his CSS patch;  reducing the magnitude  of 'negative left hiding' to -9999999, rather than -99999999  (7 nines rather than 8).
Thomas, what build did you test? This is supposed to be fixed now in Firefox 13.0b6, latest-mozilla-aurora, and latest-mozilla-central. It is not fixed in Firefox 12 and earlier, nor will it be.

Hi Anthony, yes that was at 12.  Just letting you know this is occuring in the wild; JQuery components use these large -ve positions to hide, so the bug is relevant to a good number of users.
