Vertical scroll bar with missing bottom arrow? - 07-22-2004 , 09:04 PM
Just been involved with a web site where clicking a button on the main
page opened a second (or secondary) window intended to function like a
dialog box in Apple GUI jargon. (The primary page was a private
nonprofit organization's home page and the secondary window was actually
an election ballot.)
The secondary window opened smaller than the primary page, both
vertically and horizontally, with a vertical scroll bar which had the
usual slider, an up arrow at the top of the bar, but -- unusual, in my
experience -- no down arrow at the bottom (though the slider could be
dragged down, or clicked down by clicking below it in the scroll bar
Other pages on the same site and linked to from the same home page had
normal scroll bars when needed, with arrows at both ends.
Would this be due to some kind of coding glitch in the HTML, for the
primary page or the second window, and what kind of glitch or error
might this be?

Sounds like a browser bug on window resizing. Browser? OS? URL?
