Browser: FF 3.6
OS: Ubuntu-Jaunty
Display Resolution: 1024x768

Earliest Reported bug: ID: 2860298
Elasticfox Version: 1.7.000108
Firefox Version: 3.5.3
OS: Fedora 10
Hardware: Dell Latitude C640
Screen Resolution: 1024x768

With my configuration and screen resolution the entire 'Launch Instance'
screen does not fit in the window so I cannot actually launch the
instance.

I do not have any other problems like this with Firefox or any other apps,
Elasticfox is the only app that exhibits this behavior.

A scroll bar will allow me to scroll down and actually launch an instance
using Elasticfox.

Please see attached screen shot.

Thanks!

Latest Reported bug: ID: 2946768

The "Launch Instances Of This AMI" dialog box does not resize nor does it
have a scroll bar, thus
the bottom two dialog buttons of "cancel" and "launch" do not show on
screen and are thus not
clickable. This sort of breaks the tool and renders it useless.

See previous bug report from September 2009:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=1022151&aid=2860323&group_
id=212540

Can we please get this fixed?
-------------------------

Fix: One way to fix the bug is to add style="overflow:auto" to the top most vbox of the dialog. Like:

<vbox flex="1" style="overflow:auto">

Made this change in
src/chrome/content/ec2ui/dialog_new_instances.xul
as well as
src/chrome/content/ec2ui/dialog_instance_details.xul

Please see attached patch file: efox-instance-scroller-bug.diff

And also the screen shot showing the scroller
