Editor - Restricted area (Chrome only)

I have a user on our site who is experiencing an odd thing when using Chrome to Edit a page... As you can see in the screen shot, the scroll bar is shortened, although the editing "area" appears much larger...

In IE or Foxfire, he doesn't have this problem.

No other user is experiencing this in Chrome, and this user only started seeing this.

I just thought I'd post to see if anyone had any experience like this...

Same question I asked the user (and I should have indicated that before)... He is not... "standard" Chrome...

Does that user use a beta, dev or chromium version of Chrome? I've seen some weird happenings with Chrome 27 which is currently in the beta branch.

Can you have the user start an incognito window and navigate through Confluence a bit? I wonder if there's something weird cached or an extenstion creating an issue. It's odd that it's only happening for this single user.

If that's a problem only for that browser but for that user and you can't reproduce it probably doing some cache cleaning to the browser would be the solution. That indeed it's a weird problem.

This is being tracked in CONF-28415

It only affects Chrome 27.x (in the Chrome beta channel).

Chrome 28.x is fine (the dev channel).

This was, indeed, the problem... Thanks!

There's a work-around you can apply in that ticket (it'll probably be in 5.1.3), I'd suggest if you apply the work around you watch the ticket in case there's any updates to the work-around (e.g. to cover a case we may of missed).
