Missing Scrollbars in Chrome and Safari
Problem: I’m having trouble with the grading section of Blackboard, and I have tried this on two browsers (Chrome Version 29.0.1547.65 and Safari 6.0.5). It does seem to work fine on Firefox 3.16.13. What happens is this: when I open up the “full grading center” I am not allowed to scroll left or right within it; consequently I am not able to grade any assignments that are beyond the opening five columns that show up. The horizontal scroll bar is missing.
Resolution/Workaround: This issue is due to OS X’s different settings for scrollbars starting with Lion. The workaround for Lion and Mountain Lion users is as follows:
- Launch System Preferences, either from the Dock or from the Apple menu.
- Once the System Preferences window opens, select the General preference pane.
- The middle section of the General preference pane controls when scroll bars appear and a few additional scroll bar options.
- To return the scroll bars to their pre-Lion functionality, select “Always” from the Show Scroll Bars options. The scroll bars will now always be visible, even when you’re not scrolling.
