FF 5.0.1 Scroll Bar

Hi Folks, if I open my browser by clicking an email link, the scroll bar is missing, opening FF from desktop shortcut works.
I am aware it only shows if needed but not in my case.

You may want to create a new profile to see if there is a problem with your profile or some extensions you can do this to test for problems.
Click on the Start Button and if you have it on the right side of the start menu click on Run if it is not there type "run" without quote marks in the search box and choose Run.

Make sure that you have unchecked don't ask at startup and select your new profile and click on Start Firefox. This profile manager box will open each time you start Firefox until you check the Don't ask at startup box again.

Hi Jerry, FF 5.0.1 as in thread topic.
FF forums never replied and I sent feedback.

Are you aware of this:-
I was using FF 5.0. I clicked Help > About Firefox. It showed I was using the latest version. I then attempted to send feedback, but was told I could only do so if using the latest version with a link to download it. I am now on FF version 5.0.1. Is'nt life strange.

Try using a different Persona. Maybe the trouble is in the theme and not FF. Also, try clicking the Alt key and see if the scroll bar appears. That's a long shot, but that's what I use to access the menu bar.
