    Why is the Inbox vertical scroll bar not visible permanently ?

    Its appearance on hover seems completely random - for barely a second - so that click and miss (scrollbar) is more common than clicking an email by mistake.

    And because the (unwanted) infinite scroll loads so jerkily, it adds to the scroll bars on/off flicker.

    In short, for Inbox please:
    i) Give Users the option of Pages
    ii) Give Users the option of fixing the scroll bar in view permanently.

    "Refresh" "Reload" or whatever has been complained about for over a year - and its getting worse.
    It is making pretty much all mail management unusable.

    IMO, the No.1 problem is the Infinite Scroll. Presumably it keeps loading more emails "below the screen".

    No.2 seems to be constant attempts to link with other "services".
    At bottom left corner is a message about:
    "Waiting for ... Gateway.Messenger.Live ..."

    AFAIK, I have never used "Messenger" and have never sought to link to it.

    In the olden days "Skype" would try to connect - despite having no Skype account.
    Even those WITH a Skype account wanted to control linking.

    Whatever the cause of constant refresh/reload, it needs to be stopped.

    Me Too !
    I accidently clicked something - and hundreds of deliberately "unread" emails amongst 12,000 became "read".

    I hadn't realised that this button "appeared" unexpectedly.
    Probably this ocurred because Outlook.com is so laggy - constantly trying to link to other "services" (or refreshing).

    Now on the new BETA version this unwanted button is the ONLY visible text in the Menu bar (other than New Message).
    Why more prominent than (say) Print ??

    Please hide it under another (meaningless) monotone icon.

    Same for me.
    Today the BETA was forced on me - and all sorts of unexpected behaviours have occurred.

    But constant Inbox refreshing is preventing work.

    Disappearing scrollbar is maikng it hard to scroll and find emails.

    Why can't Microsoft leave what works (e.g. old Hotmail) and stop adding unwanted features that mess up everything else ?

    Outlook.com has no idea what MY "top results" are.
    The result is confusion as the wanted and remembered messages are missing.
    The Date Order is confusing.

    If there is any demand for "Top Results" - allow those Users to set filter criteria for themselves.

    Moving mouse/pointer acrss the page causes things to appear/disappear - shifting whole inbox left or right.
    Very annoying.

    Problem seems to be the Inbox scroll bar appearing and disappearing.

    Please leave scroll bar in view
