There's an annoying bug that I've been experiencing for some time, the scroller overlays the code in a code box and hides the code itself.

It is shown best in the following screen shot: enter image description here As you can see, the scroller of the code box hides the code itself.

I'm not sure about it but I think it happens only and not always - when the code is only one line.

I'm using Chrome on MacOs

  • Can you check again? I think this is fixed now.

If I'am not mistaking, it's a Chrome/Chromium bug;


I got the link from that thread; Cannot dismiss scrollbar in code box, blocks view

It show how to bypass the problem too

and you can see shog9 comment's from that thread;

Marking this "support" since it appears to be caused by a toxic cocktail of Mac and Chrome - while the giants fight it out, the best we can do is work around it. – Shog9♦

I did wrote that in an answer as I can't mark a duplicate there, as the original question is on metastackexchange, and migrating your question to MSE would not be a good idea IMO
