Trunk build 2001052404 on US Win95.

Go to http://www.intel.com/.
Adjust the window size to be narrower than the page.
No horizontal scroll bar appears.

Works on Netscape 4.x.

I'm seeing this on all sites.

Tested using build 2001080203 on Win2k (SP2)

Like the reporter says, "Adjust the window size to be narrower than the page.
No horizontal scroll bar appears."

The area where the scrollbar should be is clickable and you can go back and
forth horizontally by clicking in the open area or by clicking the arrows.

This may simply be a css problem no displaying the scrollbar in the chrome or

This seems to be skin specific.  I see no horizontal scrollbars for form 
widgets or for the browser itself with the Modern skin.  The vertical scrollbar 
is fine in both cases.

I do see horizontal scrollbars or the classic skin, however, they are very thin 
and don't take up the full space that they are given.  Additionally, the 
vertical scrollbars for the classic skin are doing the same thing as the 
horizontal scrollbars (thin).

I think the component should be Skinabillity.  Any disagreements???

Me neither. There is a scrollbar that you can drag but it's not visisble so it
might be hard cliking the right places. I've only seen this for 1-2 days so I
don't think it's the bug bobj originally reported. Should this report be morphed?

In modern skin, if I select Preformat in the editor and then type until I get to
the edge of the page, the horizontal scrollbar trough appears, but there's no
scrollbar thumb in it to drag.

This bug is a layout bug about scrollbar not wisible on some wide pages. 

The new problem of the missing thumb in the horizontal scrollbar reported in
recent days for the Modern skin is a new bug. I reported it today as bug 93548.

It seems the missing thumb part of this bug is a dup of 93193.
