Alignment of DIV vertical scrollbar changed from Firefox 2 to Firefox 3

Hi All,

It appears that Firefox 3 has changed the way vertical scrollbars are displayed in relation to content when using overflow:auto. The below code and images should make the problem clear. The outer containing table is there to collapse the DIV with to the inner table width, which is dynamic width. The inner table could have any number of columns. Any clues how I can make this Firefox 3 scrollbar behave like IE and like it did in Firefox 2?

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr><td>
            <div id="gridDiv0" style="height:300px;overflow:auto;font-family:Arial; font-size:6pt;">
            <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                <asp:Repeater ID="rptScheduleGrid0" runat="server" EnableViewState="false">

OK, I got this figured out. I had to do a little browser sniffing and for FF3 I added a 17px right margin to the inner table (with the grid). It seems to be working very nicely.
