It seems that, when using HTML-based page editing for my Online Mall page using the combi Mozilla Firefox 20.0 in WindowsXP Professional on a cable-modem interconnexion (to help you with debugging), you can't scroll sidweays on the editor as opposed to up and down. Why?

Hi,

Unless something has changed within the last 48 hours then by using either your sideways arrows or click and drag you can get to the end of the line of HTML within the widget. You need to then click again at the insertion point

There isn't a default setting of sideways scroll bars on this widget in FF or Chrome and I don't know if they appear in other browsers.

In attempting to follow your advice with the sideways arrows in the keyboard, I cannot seem to get directly to the end of the HTML line. How would I go about this specifically absent a scroll bar to make things easier?

Hi Exaggerator,

I went back into an existing HTML widget and can see the issue using the current release of FireFox and Win 8 OS. This is a recently occurring issue and one I trust will be looked at urgently by Yola.

The method I suggested now doesn't work and I can't edit the HTML directly within the widget.

The way I worked around this was I Cut or Copied the whole code which becomes highlighted on clicking and then pasted it into Notepad and made alteration there and then copied it back into the widget after making sure that the previous content was deleted as you certainly don't want duplicate code in the HTML widget
