    I'm sure somebody will chime in on this and help. I have that problem on some threads and on some threads it will start out like that and when its fully loaded it gets normal. Most are normal though. I hope you get it fixed,that can be aggravating.

    I am going to wager that somehow the font size on the pages have been altered causing it to scroll horizontal... to fix this do the following...

    -hold the CTRL key down and use your wheel mouse to scroll down while holding CTRL

    Scrolling up increases font size on webpages... scrolling down obviously decreases size

    In your case, decrease is the way to go to correct the problem.


    If you do not have a wheel mouse... I dont know how to help you. LOL

    Apparently they've changed the page setup, because I'm having the same problem. The way I 'fix' it is to click on View on the top toolbar, put the cursor on text size, and click on decrease. Twice. The first time makes it smaller, but not small enough; the second time eliminates my having to scroll. Of course, that makes the text so small it's a little hard for me to read. :angry:

    with or without the scroll mouse, the windows default is ctrl+ the minus sign on the numeric keypad for smaller, or the plus sign on the numeric keypad for bigger. You can also use ctrl + the = sign for bigger, or ctrl + the - on the regular keyboard for smaller.

    OR, you can click on 'view', then 'text size', and adjust it that way. That's what we did yesterday, and it worked nicely.
