A frame nested in a frame nested in a frame nested in a web page. SEVEN SCROLLBARS! Someone redesign this, for god’s sake.

  1. So where is the problem? Microsoft or Firefox? I think both.

  2. I have so much trouble finding what I need on MSDN. So, I’m with you on this one. One big headache for me is I like to middle click then drag to begin a page scroll. MSDN only allows horizontal (thus useless) scrolling in this manner with Firefox. Grr. Gets me every time too. Anyway, picked up somewhere on msdn; type “t” when viewing a page to toggle the contents frame.

  3. The problem is Microsoft’s, obviously. I mean, what an awful mess.

  4. On IE7, you get a redirection to the fixed page… Obviously this is not a Firefox problem.
