Phantom scrollbars Issue Tools

Phantom scrollbars
Horizontal scrollbars appear randomly on pages in Orbiter Forum

This is more weirdness than a problem!

The bars disappear when you scroll down the page then back up again.
The bars themselves cannot be clicked on.
Any ideas?

Here's some pics.

Thanks for the report and screen shots. Some questions for you..

1. What browser are you using?
2. Does this happen in every thread or is it random?
3. When did you first notice it? (date and time as close as possible)
4. Is it still happening as of you reading this?

Chrome when both of the above happened. I thinks that it only happens in Chrome.

I think that it's random. I've never seen it anywhere else on other sites.

Hmmm... Recently... Sorry, can't really remember. Unfortunately I can't remember when it started to happen as it's the kind of thing that you write off as a glitch for the first few times that it happens. I guess in the past few weeks?

It only happens quite rarely (but not rarely enough to be not something...). Let's say every 30 loadings of threads? That kind of frequency.

What version of Chrome? Also, what forum skin are you using? (I see default in the screens, so have you noticed it on other skins or do you only use default?)

Can anyone else using Chrome confirm? I am not able to duplicate this so far myself.

No such problems on Chrome(ium) 15.0.873.0.

Ah. I'm on version 13.0... That's odd. The "About Google Chrome" box says that I'm up to date, yet I seem to be several versions behind. I'll try updating and see if it stops.

I'm using the "default" skin, and that's the only one I've been using.

No need to worry. Chrome version 13.0.782.220 is currently the production release, so if you have that version, you're up to date in your update channel (last update was Sep. 3, 2011). Chrome 14 is currently in beta release cycle, and Chrome 15 / Chromium in development cycle.

If nothing helps, try with disabled plug-ins, or changed flags.

I'm running the same version of chrome, and I see them occasionally to. Their appearance seems to be random.

I've found this related to the issue, no permanent solution though:
Two Plus Two Poker Forums: Random Horizontal Scroll Bar (Using Chrome)

  • Do threads where it appears contain automatically resized images?
  • Does the scrollbar persist at the same place if you scroll page up or down?
  • Does it persist after the page has been fully loaded?

I haven't seen them either, running Google Chrome 13.0.782.220

I exclusively use the Dark Nights skin.

I have seen them on Chrome, using version 13.0.782.220 on a Mac. I use the default skin, and it seems to happen randomly. I can't remember seeing them since I upgraded to OS X Lion (which hides the scroll bars when they're not in use - although I do seem to recall seeing them somewhat recently, although I could be mistaken), but I definitely saw them fairly often when using Snow Leopard (which doesn't hide the scroll bars).
