It should automatically wrap the words, but sometimes it bugs out and does not do it.

Which forum are you trying to view?? Does this problem exist forum-wide or only in a specific area??

Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help discourages using word wrap for submitting logs after running scan tools.

It is not consistent and not forum wide. When it happens again I will make a screen shot and post it here.

An image in the thread that is wider than your screen will force the whole page to be wider than your screen. A really long text string, with no spaces or dashes can also cause the same problem.

Yes that is what is happening. I have never seen this issue on any other forum but then maybe no one has posted such a string on the other forums I belong to. Too bad that the software does not wrap by string length.

Here is an example that widens the entire thread page.

Yep, it's probably due to those 300+ long character strings. And it appears the forum is set to wrap those strings at a space, or a dash, or an ampersand. Possibly at any non-alpha-numeric character. If you press [Ctrl][-] a few times to zoom out far enough it to make the horizontal scroll bar disappear. You can also hold down the [Ctrl] key while you move the top of the mouse wheel back toward you to zoom out, or away from you to zoom in. Or press [Ctrl][+] a few times to zoom back in. (Works in most browsers).

That is the area I expected to see in regard to your query and is due to preference of our Security Staff.

As above, it's normal. It also happens when someone posts a YouTube type video with an HTTPS address. We chage it to HTTP and it shrinks back to a normal page.
