I didn't repro this with an extension I already installed (build 569 on Win7).  I tried Google Mail Checker Plus, and the first time I clicked on it I saw the problem.  All subsequent clicks were sized properly however.

For any of the people who are seeing this bug in the field, do you know what the last version you tried where this problem wasn't occurring?
On the dev channel it wasn't occurring in the previous release

Google Chrome 8.0.552.23 (Official Build 64356) dev: OK
 Google Chrome 9.0.570.0 (Official Build 64571) dev: FAIL

My versions of Chrome are the exact same as ryazanov comment 13.

Now that I have 9.0.569.0 running, the problem is better as described by erikkay comment 12. The first time I click on the dropdown,it's not visible, but it opens up on subsequent clicks.

I was able to narrow it down to this particular file changing:

http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/70546/trunk/WebCore/rendering/RenderBox.cpp

But I don't yet understand anymore than that.
Same problem here, sometime it works, sometimes not. I have only minimum of extensions installed.

Comment 42 by aa@chromium.org, Nov 22 2010
Can anyone see this on 9.0.587.0? I'm having trouble reproducing it recently. I wonder if it got fixed by someone else.
That may just be because extension authors have updated their extensions with a workaround?
We haven't touched the Reader notifier, but it's using the correct width on 9.0.587.0.
Comment 45 by aa@chromium.org, Nov 22 2010
Yes, that is my fear. Though I had it reproducing reliably as recently as a few days ago.

FYI, for everyone following this. I have a patch I can make upstream that will fix this for LTR text. I think that will address 90% of the cases. For RTL the fix is going to take a bit longer.

A workaround for all cases is to explicitly assign a width to the html element with CSS, like so:


html {
  width: 275px; /* taking into account default padding/margins on html/body */
}
body {
  width: 255px;
}

 Issue 65223  has been merged into this issue.
Comment 51 by aa@chromium.org, Dec 3 2010
Ok, the LTR quick workaround should be in trunk builds and canaries post r68205. I will let it soak awhile and merge to m9 early next week.

This issue likely requires triage.  The current issue owner maybe inactive (i.e. hasn't fixed an issue in the last 30 days).  Thanks for helping out!
