Umm... Firefox doesn't like horizontal scrollbars on divs, does it? Well... I can't figure out how to get a horizontal scrollbar to work on a div... I mean, I can get it to show up. And I can make the vert one fuck off... But Firefox doesn't use the horz one. It does absolutely nothing.

GRRR. Is "overflow-x" deprecated? I'm really tired, btw... It's 5:17AM and I'm hacking away at my myspace profile :P

Can you use another element than a div? Not really sure if div's are made for scrollbars and shit.

Div's are the "it" for everything. A table is an alternate method for creating... Tables. But not layout stuff (although most web designers take the lazy route :P)

In Firefox, if you add overflow-x:scroll, it just acts as if you'd typed overflow:scroll and shows both bars. I think it works in IE, though.

Send it to the developers at Mozilla, it could be fixed in 3.6.

Why the hell would you WANT horizontal scroll? It's one of the most annoying things you can do for a web user. Avoid it at all costs.

You must have a pretty decent reason to justify the use of it, and I'd like to hear it.

It's having to scroll left to view the end of a text because of wide pages that people mainly hate... I want a horizontal scroll in a div, not the whole page. The reason being that the section I want to make scrollable is not very wide vertically. Also, due to it being images I'm adding in a kinda, it would be nicer to do it in this way. It's not as if they'd be scrolling back and forth to read text..

It's just a scroll with little thumbnail links.


EDIT: The newest versions of IExplorer mess it up too... God I remember when times were simpler :P

It's still completely unnecessary.

Mozilla and Microsoft probably disabled it on purpose. :P
