Hi, all, on this site:

I've installed a js script from here: http://www.schillmania.com/projects/snowstorm/

Looks good in IE 7. In FF 3.5, I see a scroll bar flashing at the bottom of the screen.  I see it on the schillmania site as well. Anybody know why? I'll post the js script here. Thanks.

If you modify these two lines:
this.flakeLeftOffset = 0;       // Left margin/gutter space on edge of container (eg. browser window.) Bump up these values if seeing horizontal scrollbars.
  this.flakeRightOffset = 0;      // Right margin/gutter space on edge of container

Open in new window


It should take away the bottom Scrollbar. I would start with 10 each and increase from there.
