Chrome scroll bar

Another funny bug in Google Chrome. When you try to edit any Confluence page, the side scrollbar is very tiny and short, and the text covers only a small region of the page, while most of it remains blank.

The funniest thing is the issue exist only in recent Chrome builds. If you take a version from last year, everything works fine there. So you may either upgrade to Confluence 5 with all the latest updates or wait for a newer Chrome build to fix it. Or better yet, don’t use neither of the software.
