Hi Lawrence

This seems to be the result of some customization or third-party plugin.

Could you try the approaches below?

1) Try resetting the custom decorator from Administration >> Layouts or Browse >> Space Admin >> Layouts.

2) If the approach below do not help, try to set your Confluence Plugins on "Safe Mode" and check if the behavior persists;

Kind Regards

As pointed out by Theo, there is bug in Confluence occuring in Chrome: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-28415 Do check it out and see if the workaround fixes the issue. Otherwise, it might be caused by customization or third party plugins.

Just a quick note about this bug. The issue is resolved in Confluence 5.1.3.

If you are on a version of Confluene pre 5.1.3 we have a plugin fix for this editor height issue available in our marketplace.


Are you using Chrome? There's a problem with using chrome and editing pages!

thanks everyone. There is a problem with Chrome and there is a fix out there as a plugin. Sorry for the delayed reply!
