Can't scroll in WYSIWYG editors using IE 6.0

Postby cozimek » Wed Sep 20, 2006 12:35 pm

Hi everyone,

J 1.0.10, IIS 6.0, PHP 4.4.2, and Internet Explorer 6 (works fine in FireFox 1.5)

We have JCE 1.0.4 installed in this Joomla, but are finding that we are unable to ever see scrollbars within the admin WYSIWYG editors when using IE 6.0 (FireFox has no problems).  When we just use the "no editor" option in the global configuration, we do see scrollbars in textareas.  However, when we use TinyMCE or JCE, we don't see scrollbars, so when we write long pages of text, we can't see the text that continues below the textarea boundaries.

Anyone else have these issues?

Remove overflow:hidden; in the stylesheet.

Works for me.
