Root Cause

When user is moving from one dynamic tab to other tab (that is one iframe to other), scrollbar will disappear.

It is an existing Chrome browser issue. Issue is reproduced outside PRPC also.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior:

Issue appears to only existing Google Chrome browsers. Scrollbars persist as expected in
Internet Explorer and FireFox browsers.

Additionally, scrollbars will reappear in Chrome browser, if the user resizes the browser window or reload the browser.

This indeed is a issue with Chrome's handling of iframes, which is why the scrollbar issue is occurring.
