CJ, I've got the same problem. I found that by holding both mouse buttons down and dragging the cursor up and down it will scroll...kinda....Funny thing is my Laptop and the Computer upstairs dont display any problem...the scroll bar is there and working. I'm using IE 5 with all kinds of updates/patches installed. O/S Win98 SE. Tom

No problems here. Win98 and IE 5.5.

Tom -- that works for me too! (kinda) -- very inventive! THANKS for sharing!

Doug -- I've found that the scroll bar is PRESENT when I view the IMAGE in the OLD Challenges -- it does NOT show when I view the Challenge description page, but when I click on the image to get the enlarged view -- voila! the scroll bar is there also. The bar is NOT visible when I visit the NEW Challenge pages -- even when I view the enlarged image -- although it "appears" to be visible as the screen refreshes (not sure if that's correct term -- when the page is changing from one window view to another - there's a "stutter" or flicker of the page) -- it looks like the bar might be there for that second or two. Hope this helps a bit.

Perhaps some brave soul who is having problems would be willing to upgrade to the newest version of the browser and report if any improvement is made?

Additionally, I'm reading that cacheing portions of a page can cause problems like this. This site includes code that disables cacheing for just that reason, but you might be overriding that in your browser setup. Check and see what your cache setting is at. Mine is set to "automatic", which I recommend (under Tools>Internet Options>General (tab)>Temporary Internet Files>Settings).

Also, are there any NON-IE users having these new problems? And, of the IE users, any non-Windows users?

For some reason, I haven't noticed a problem. I'm running Windows XP with IE6.

Does the fact that the scroll bar shows up in the enlarged version of the Challenge entries, but not the thumbnail or image with challenge work description versions MEAN ANYTHING?

I'm NOT gonna be the one to 'upgrade' to IE6... IE5.0 has been doing fine, thanks.

I can't get technical support unless someone having a problem upgrades to a current browser.

Would be like calling Adobe and complaining about PS5 not running some new filters. Actually, that's not precise. It would be like calling a filter company and complaining their new filter won't run on old versions of PS. Or maybe that's not it, either, but you know what I mean.

Regardless, I need someone experiencing this problem willing to move into year 2002 with me so we can debug this sucker

One of the most frustrating parts of intermittent problems like this (aside from the fact that I can't see the actual problem) is that people start assuming that one problem is related to other problems they're having. I'm guilty of this myself.

For example, another user reported a navbar weirdness and it actually had nothing to do with this problem, even though it seemed to be related (that one was due to my stupid misconfiguration of a stylesheet, which are brand new to this navbar version and I'm learning to use as I go).

I'm not trying to shift blame here, just trying to keep the focus on one specific problem in this thread.

Nick, if I'm not mistaken, your situation was related to offline reading and is solved by reading online? Dynamic pages aren't designed for friendly offline reading, particularly those with javascript. Dynamic pages are pages (like this one) that don't even exist until you click a link to view them. They are then quickly written and downloaded so you can read them. I'm surprised offline reading worked for you up to this point.

We'll be making even more forays into the bleeding edge in the upcoming months. Many of my plans aren't even possible with current technology, so I'm sure we'll have even more weirdness when they do become available.

But I am working very hard behind-the-scenes to make things as painless as possible. Plus I'm learning a lot as we go along (I'm not a web-designer by profession, or even by hobby).

Apologies to all, again, and take heart, I've already gotten word that at least three of our users are now back to full RP normality.
