    'm looking ( been looking for it since I updated to Fairfax 1.5 ) for the plug in that gives Firefox the ability to have: a scroller on the Right side ( to drag up & down when searching a long listed page ( examples 300 answers in 1 post )).


    Thanks you in advance for your help:)

    Hi,
    I have Firefox 1.5 and have the R/H side scroll bar as standard, not as a plugin.

    Is it possible the pages you load are bigger than the screen size, and the scroll bar is over to the right, out of screen ?. Can you see the red X at the top R/H corner, if not, put the cursor on the top information bar and left click, hold down the button, you can then move the whole page over to the left.
    You can reduce the size of the page by hovering your cursor over the side of the page edge, when it changes to a double ended arrow <--> , left click and hold and move the page edge to wherever to fit your screen.

    I must of missed a plug in ( I call it a plug in because it did not come as is ) or something, I dont know more, tried everything I saw in Firefox web page .


    It's been 3 days since I updated from the older version & still cant figure it out


    Thanks again for your help(y)

    Hi,

    It looks as though you are in full page mode,
    If you can see the 3 boxes (minimum - max - close ) in the top R/H corner, click on the centre one, this should reduce the page size, you should be able to adjust the page to fit your screen then.
    Use the hovering cursor on side of box, until <--> then do as in previous

    If you can't see the 3 boxes where the X should be, double click the very top information bar
