Home Forums CSS Which div is too wide? Reply To: Which div is too wide?


I see the problem on iPhone – and the horizontal scrollbar appears when moving the visible area left or right.

I just tried it again on my iPhone 5 with iOS 8, in both Safari and Chrome, both landscape and portrait mode, and I don’t get a scrollbar anywhere.

After playing around with it a bit, I noticed the scrollbar only appears (on FF) if the window is 295 or less pixels.

That’s because of the ASIDE element in the footer, which is set to be at least 220 pixels wide — add some padding and you end up with a scrollbar when the screen is 270 or so.
