MSDN subpages do not display scrollbar. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is really bad (IE 6 SP1 status says there is an error on page).

    Usually the first page entrypoint to MSDN displays fine with scrollbar and thumb. If I choose a link the next (subpage) is trashed = no scrollbar and thumb. I cannot move down the page at all to see more content on any given subpage. MSDN is off no use to me if I cannot read every-drill-down-thing about a desired topic. Please advise me of potential PC system problem on my end. If at MS MSDN please fix as soon as you can. Anybody else experiencing this issue?

    Thanks

  • After a few months of living with this "MSDN secondary pages have ".... no scrollbar and thumb ..." problem,  I tried using the low bandwith link that occasionally? automagically? appears on some? MSDN pages. This "low bandwidth" option seems to resolve the problem.
    Why do I somehow fear this all part of the IE6 SP1 phaseout?  I need to check FAQ for MSDN,  but wanted to get this potential fix on record here now.

  •    Must be on MSDN's end - we cnat get anything but the front page on MSDN - technet does not load at all. tried it from several machines here at the marina (including one that is a fresh clean install) and tried it from home. THey have been having problems on both sites for about 7 weeks now.
       We have 30 MSDN and 17 Technet subscriptions which are basically useless at this point. From what I understand from a couple of the local hospitals and county government IT departments they cannot get into theirs either. Repeated attempts at getting a specific "when" it will be fixed have been fruitless

  • Can we please get an official response from Microsoft on the MSDN.com issue? We need an estimated down time. Thanks
