Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I click on "show 7 more" starred messages on the left side in chat, it only shows 4 and sometimes it shows only 2 messages. So maybe it depends on the length of the message. Could it be because it doesn't have a scroll bar? Or is it because I use Opera?

What height is your screen? – balpha Nov 25 '11 at 11:26
About (WDH) 32 cm x 26 cm x 3 cm, 1024 x 768. – cpx Nov 25 '11 at 11:39

I had this problem without realising it until I had a chat with a couple of other mods and it boiled down to screen resolution.

If you don't have a scroll bar and your resolution is low you will just not be able to see the other messages. I had to plug my netbook into a proper monitor in order to get around this issue.
