    Hi Everyone...Hope I am posting in the right place...When I am viewing my ebay 'active listings' the page is so big I have to scroll quite a long way to the right to see it all regardless of how many columns I choose to display. This only happens on this page all the other pages are fine and every other site I view is fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :confused:

    It's a common issue, usually caused by large graphics, or poor formatting of the page in question. Since much of eBay's content is automatically generated, that probably happens quite a lot there. We see that here at times when people post large graphics.

    Viewing such a page in Opera, I just click "Fit-to-width," and everything becomes visible. I believe that Firefox also has a similar feature.

    If the graphic is larger than the screen, the only way to fit it is to auto-scale the graphic.

    Thanks to everyone for their help. I have managed to get fixed by using a smaller font although it used to be fine previously when I used a larger font .... cheers Jo (y)
