What the dropdown normally looks like:

But if you middle click on the YOUR COMMUNITIES bar, you can scroll to the side:

Middle click scroll makes the mouse look like this:

Then you move to scroll. Well middle click to get that mode enabled and then move the mouse to the right.

The CSS:


width: 375px;
overflow-y: scroll;
overflow-x: hidden;
max-width: 390px;

Changing the width still keeps this gap (exactly 10px).

I haven't found the item in the CSS causing this gap yet. There is an SO question solving a similar problem though.

Computer info:

OS: Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit with latest updates.
Browser: Chrome 38.0.2125.122
Zoom 100% (Same thing happens on 50% and 150%)

  • No repro'd on FireFox 33.1, Win XP SP3, though I remember I faced this issue before. Perhaps stating the browser and OS (and maybe zoom level) will help. Nov 18, 2014 at 0:44

  • It's .topbar-dialog .site-filter-container having width: 100% and padding-left: 10px. The width: 100% seems unnecessary.

    Meh, not really answer-worthy, we'll just wait for someone to come along and answer saying that it's been fixed.

I am going to do what Tim Stone said: to answer the question saying that it's fixed. Because it's fixed. I can't do that anymore and doing that makes the browser think you're going to highlight some text.
