Importaning .txt scroll bar prob. / Please Help

Hi, I’d really really appreciate any help you guys can give - I’m a real newbie to Flash, so please bear with me:

I’ve created a news page for my website that imports a .txt document. The problem is that the scrollbar for the text box does not appear unless I first click to some other pages in the website first, and the then come back. Then it works fine for the rest of the time. Does anyone have a clue why this is?
