Sticky Note module on Google personalized start page
OmniWeb has a bit of a layout problem with the "sticky note" module which is added to new [URL=""]google personalized[/URL] pages by default.

The source of the sticky note module can be found here:

In Firefox, the module displays correctly -- regardless of how much content is added to the sticky note the box keeps growing w/o scrollbars. In OmniWeb it creates a scrollbar instead of expanding vertically and also draws an unsightly box around the sticky note.

How does one add a sticky to their homepage?

Click on the "Add Stuff" link in the upper-right of the [URL=""]page[/URL], then search for "sticky note", then click the "Add it now" button under Sticky Note.

It looks like the issue is caused by the zoomed text editor. It's a form field and in order for the field to have area for the zoomed text editor button, it then forces a scrollbar. Note the amount to be scrolled is equal to the size of the text editor button.

Note that Safari also puts a box around it, so that would appear to be a WebKit issue.

Anyway to turn off the "zoomed text editor" so it can look normal? I looked through the preferences and didn't see anything...

Actually this is due to the old style of text field that OmniWeb uses. We will be moving to a newer version of WebKit our rendering engine that will have stylable text fields and this should look more like firefox does.

Excellent! I confirmed that it looks normal using the nightly build of WebKit. Thanks
