Fixing a small problem with the new Google Contacts

No comments
I really like the new Google Contacts user interface.  It's lots better than the old one, and finally let me merge multiple contacts cleanly and easily.

But.

(Of course there's a but.)

I have a lot of contacts with a lot of information in them.  Multiple e-mail (and physical!) addresses, notes, web pages, twitters and facebooks and and and and...

And when I went to edit those users, the detail card with their information went off the bottom of the screen.

And would not scroll.

 
So I couldn't edit the groups the contact was in, or even see all the info sometimes.

Enter Stylish (Firefox / Chrome).  I've mentioned Stylish before, and I still find it to be an amazingly useful tool in dealing with some of the small aggravations on the web... like this one.

So I made a userstyle that fixes the problem:
It's all free;  you can get my userstyle "Scroll Details Card on Google Contacts" right on over at https://userstyles.org/styles/111468/scroll-details-card-on-google-contacts

Installing is really as easy as installing Stylish, going to the link above, and clicking "install now".  But if you'd like, you can browse the code itself on my github: https://github.com/uriel1998/stylish
