Error description

  • The unnecessary horizontal scrollbar blocks the contents inside
    the listbox.
    Worst case is, if the listbox only shows 2 to 3 lines of content
    s, the horizontal scrollbar will block most of the listbox,
    making user difficult to read.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Open a defect record
    2. Modify the record. Click Pencil for Symptoms field add 3 item
    s.
    3. Click OK. Symptoms listbox should not have vertical/horizonta
    l scrollbar yet.
    4. Click Pencil and add another item and OK.
    5. Now Symptoms should have vertical and horizontal scrollbars w
    here horizontal scrollbar is unnecessary.
    6. Click Pencil and add a long value (more than 30 characters) m
    anually and OK.
    7. The long value entered in step 6 should be displayed in 2 lin
    es and, therefore, the horizontal scrollbar is meaningless.
    
    This problem happens with IE7 and 8 but not IE6 nor firefox 3.5.
