Can't access bottom items in left-hand admin menu

I'm using Firefox and Chrome browsers on an old Windows XP laptop for testing because it has a small screen size... I'm also using the Firefox browser on an Android 10 phone. From the Windows Firefox browser, I ran http://jerrypeek.com/gallery/piwigo-netinstall.php yesterday. After logging on as admin, I found that I couldn't access the bottom entries in the left-hand menu: Tools and Configuration. If I tried to click near the bottom, I'd get the Piwigo website from the link "floating" over the menu. See the first screenshot below.

I can work around the problem by using the browser's "Zoom Out" command, Ctrl-minus (Ctrl-dash), to shrink the contents until the bottom of the menu is visible. See the second screen shot; I circled the zoom percentage in red.

My browser window is 1005x546 pixels. Could Piwigo automatically add a scroll bar or something if the left-side menu doesn't fit?

(BTW, I know that the window title is <img src="..." etc. I temporarily put HTML code in the Gallery Title until I can find out how to put an image there.) I'm running Piwigo on a 1&1 IONOS shared hosting package; they use Apache, MySQL 5.7 and PHP 7.3. (They'll downgrade me to PHP 7.1 if I pay an extra $10/month, which I'd rather not do if I don't have to.) If you want more info, go to http://jerrypeek.com/phpinfo.php .

Piwigo version: 2.10.1
PHP version: 7.3
MySQL version: 5.7
Piwigo URL: http://jerrypeek.com/gallery/

Re: Can't access bottom items in left-hand admin menu

Hello ! The bug has already benn reported several times since October on the French forum http://fr.piwigo.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=28411

On several OS and several browsers.

I have not heard of any soluce being on the way.

Personnally, I managed a css workaround making the side bar scroll together with the central part. And raising the max height of the side bar from 500px to 1000px.

Re: Can't access bottom items in left-hand admin menu

Thanks for the good news. Because I'm new at Piwigo, and I'm not sure I'll remember to remove any code I add temporarily, I'll keep using the browser command to zoom out a bit (which makes the whole menu visible) until 2.10.2 comes out. I'll also aim to learn how to use Github to find out what bugs have been reported/fixed...

BTW for whoever doesn't know this: Firefox 68.0.1 (for Linux, at least) has an easy way to make screen shots -- including just part of the window. It's on the right-click menu as well as on the "Page actions" menu (the "..." in the address bar). After you take the screen shot, open a graphics program like GIMP or Paint and use the paste command (Ctrl+Shift+V in GIMP).

Re: Can't access bottom items in left-hand admin menu

I have had an account at Github for years and I still do not understand how to use the (not so) new version of it. I have to ask everytime my son to get the files I need. Sometimes, I may also copy the code in notepad and save it under the right name to build my file. So trying to get informed about novelties in a project seems to be completely out of my reach. I am no geek and I use Windows and I am nuts with command lines.
