Display error of devices when using web site

When accessing my fing information via the app.fing website, my list of known devices covers more than 1 screen. There is no scroll bar, but instead a banner across the bottom of the screen with links to page 1, 2 etc. However, this banner covers the bottom most device on the screen, and selecting the next page does not display it, as it assumes that info was on the previous page. This is obviously not a serious issue, but does need tidying up at some stage. I am using Firefox on Windows PC.
Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes!

    Hi @parfimik seems like it may be a bug. Do you have a screenshot you could share here? This could help displaying the issue and we can go from there.

    Hi @parfimik
    As I have tried, our Web App does provide a scroll bar to check the devices. If your scroll bar is not active then Can you check that you do not have any adblocker or any extension enabled which is disabling the scroll bar? Can you also check the same website on a different browser and in private/incognito mode as this will automatically disable the extensions?

    I can confirm the same symptoms in Firefox Icognito. However in Chrome the scroll bar is indeed active. Usually with these sorts of things I will try another browser, but forgot in this instance.
    So it would seem to be a Firefox thing and given the regularity of their changes it is probably not worth spending too much time on. Even if it is fixed now, some future update could well mess up I suspect. In truth I usually use the phone app to monitor my system so I am more than happy!!!
    Thanks for the response.

    Could we have option in web app to either use this calssic, paged view or to have one long scrollable list? Sometimes I find fast scrollig to identify specific device is faster than searching for it through several pages... Obviously it is personal preferrence...

    Thanks @parfimik for reporting back on Firefox. I guess we're definitely prioritizing the most popular browsers!
    @Mirekmal thanks or the suggestion, feel free to submit your idea over here!

    I dispute this - Firefox no more change their underlying rendering engine code than do Google with Chromium. Google do however have more say in the W3C standards as Chromium based projects outnumber anything else.

    This is getting more and more like the bad old days of IE4 - which, for anyone not around at the time, was replete with folks complaining on how other browsers didn't render correctly when sites coded primarily for IE4 and not for anything else.

    Right now Google has way too much control over the W3C committees - and that gives them the edge (no pun intended).

    Firefox not rendering something that Chrome can, is not always an indicator of bad practises at Mozilla.
    People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

    OK @Pooh I can report it to the DEV team as well and see any more feedback.

    I've checked in with @gideon and I guess browser uptake definitely has an impact on priorities. Nevertheless I'm having this looked into further.
