UI Issue - I have to scroll down, to be able to scroll horizontally #14194
With the introduction of the extra scrollbars, usability is harder when viewing tables.
now when I want to scroll horizontally, I have to scroll down until I finally find the horizontal scrollbar, move the horizontal scrollbar, then scroll up again, so I can see the data I wanted.
Prior to 4.8.0, I was able to do this by directly using the main body's horizontal scrollbar.
Isn't it better to simply have the table itself overflow (and we control with the main body scrollbars),
and everything else won't pass the 100% width of the body?
The thing is that I don't think it's a good idea to make the table itself in a div with scrolls,
but instead have the table as it was before, but ONLY the table can overflow the body.

Dear @nulll-pointer, I agree with @nunoperalta. Adding horizontal scrollbar at the top of the table will not make it easier to use. I still have to point the cursor on the scrollbar and drag it. When we in a rush, pointing cursor over a small scrollbar object could be frustrating.
Thank you. That is definitely THE solution for this issue ticket.... that's exactly how I want phpMyAdmin to be.
If they come up with some other solution that involves extra scroll bars, I'll just have to patch my phpMyAdmin files to override that style.
