Please note the disclaimer at the bottom of the setup page.

Without turning off your styles, it's hard to tell how much of the table
is inaccessible.

The best course to take is to eliminate fixed sized anything and
everything possible. A disclaimer would just make it easier for visitors
to see whether or not they and their browser qualify to use your page.
Better everyone and every standards-compliant browser should qualify.
It's pretty crazy to have a need to scroll and be unable to scroll and
have 40% of the viewport unused.

Suppressing the scrolling makes the page essentially useless as long as
your stylesheet remains fully enabled.
