I have 4 IE 9.0 browsers open.
One to Hotmail, one to EE, one to Yahoo.
The other one to Craigslist is the only one that does not have a lower, left to right, scroll bar.
Why not and what is the fix?

Also, the left side the listings are too close to the edge.
There should be a margin.

Testing with Chrome it is the same way, except the left side is not quite as bad. Still no scroll bar on the bottom.

I just went to another website and no lower scroll bar.

nickg5--Using IE 9 and Win 7 I went to http://MYCITY.craigslist.org/etc/  (not real city name) and got no horizontal scroll bar.  The left margin is no different from yours.
I do not think you are missing anything.

IEFF


I look at Craigslist multiple times per day. I'm certain the beginning of the ads on the left are too close to the edge of the browser window.

Look here at these 2 photos.

The one with IE, if the text was the width of one letter further to the left, you could not see the whole word.
Then with Firefox you see there is a margin.

I noticed it first late today and I visit that site several times every day.

Could it be the way that website is formatting the pages?

I think it is CL.
If I click on a job being offered, the entire page and the way it is displayed is different from the other day.

nickg5--If words are cut off at the left margin, you should be concerned.  Just being very close to the edge is no problem--certainly not to the functionality.

It appears to have been Craigslist. Now, the first letter of the word on the left is not running into the edge of the window. It's the expected distance from the precise edge, creating a margin which is normal.
