Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to run your application in the mobile browser simulator
    in Chrome results in your vertical and horizontal scroll bars
    disappearing.
    
    Problem:
    
    When you run your application in the mobile browser simulator in
    Chrome, the horizontal and vertical scroll bars disappear.  If
    you change from 100% to "Fit to Window" you can see the scroll
    bars.  However, if you switch to another device, the scroll bars
    will disappear again.  Selecting 100% will allow them to appear
    again.  This pattern continues every time you select a new
    device.
    
    Local fix:
    
    There is no known workaround at this time.

    ****************************************************************
    When using the mobile browser simulator on Chrome, in some
    cases, the scroll bars may not be present event if the
    device content should be scrollable.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix was introduced to the mobile browser simulator to
    explicitly control when the scroll bars are displayed,
    instead of relying on the browser to make this decision.
