chrome version 50 confluence editor footer size

Keith Weinheimer Apr 14, 2016

this is very similar to the issue years ago 

I have confirmed this on multiple computers, when chrome updates to version 50 the footer takes up over half the page

I've ran into same issue. As an interim solution if you save this as a bookmark:

Name: Resize

URL: javascript:$("#editpageform").height($(window).height()-45);

Then you can just click it to resize it quickly

Latest Chrome update is sucks. But our team saved a lot of time with the InPlace Editor for Confluence today.

Confirmed this happened on Confluence 5.7.  I had Chrome version 49.x.  When I upgraded to version 50.x to test the user-reported issue, the error occurred.

Can confirm this issue can be reproduced with Chrome v50.0.2661.75 and Confluence Server 5.5.3 and the css workaround provided in the KB article above does not fix.

The CSS solution provided on:
worked for us - that way, each user doesn't have to use the JS-based solution provided above. We are using Confluence version 5.4.4
