Errm yeah sorry status bar
So I need to look in the FX settings?
Can you see the scrolling using FX? Do you use FX?
Thanks a million
As a tech, Im not sure if this is safe, whats your opinion?

It isn't safe because it allows nefarious sites to hide or spoof the hrefs in links.

IE by default shows this staus bar scrolling but FF needs to have the setting manually set, this is why FF is so much more "safer" that IE.
I don't seem to have a file named Registry in my /etc.
Always Backup your Registry before editing
This status bar spoofing is one of those things that's most dangerous with semi-experienced users. Experienced users either disable that capability or understand it can't be trusted otherwise. Bright green users don't even know what it is and may not even have the status bar viewable. But those guys in the middle that "know" that the status bar either has the url of the hovered link or a page-generated message will miss the fact that "page-generated message" my look exactly like a url.
And that fixed your site for me also on Firefox.
