On Indeed.com, once you search for a job, the job description section, on the results page, is missing the vertical scroll bar

Description of the issue:
On Indeed.com, when you search for a job, the job description section, on the results page, is missing the vertical scroll bar.

In Brave Beta:

In Chrome:

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. In Brave Beta, go to Indeed.com.
  2. In the What search box, type dog walker and press enter.
  3. A list of jobs is shown with descriptions. If the job description is not shown, click in one of the job listings (not on the job title, that will open a new window).
  4. The job description section is missing the vertical scroll bar.
  5. If you copy https://www.indeed.com/jobs?q=dog%20walker and paste (or Paste and go to) it into the Brave Beta address bar, the page works properly.

Expected result:
The job description should have a vertical scroll bar like the Chrome snip above.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.18.51 Chromium: 87.0.4280.49 (Official Build) beta (64-bit) / Windows 10

Additional Information:
This works properly in the Standard version of Brave, Version 1.16.76 Chromium: 86.0.4240.198 (Official Build) (64-bit), in addition to the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
On my end, I see the scroll bar working on both Windows 10 and macOS systems, on all Brave platforms. I have a couple things to test/try:

  1. Can you right click anywhere on the search page, select the Brave option, then select Clear CSS rules for this site, refresh the page, then see if the scroll bar appears?
  2. If it does not appear after trying the above, can you open the dev tools Console tab (after performing a search and clicking on a job) and share a screenshot of any output here? You can do this by going to Menu --> Tools --> Developer tools --> [Console]

I’m glad I can help.

I tried Step 1, but there was no change.

I attempted to post the console, but the output is too long for a post.
Lots of: Failed to load resource: net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT. If you enable uploading files, on my account, I can upload the console as a text file.

One modification I had, on my version of Brave Beta, is I had Autoplay set to blocked. Initially, I thought this might be the problem, but after more testing, I don’t think it is.

The problem seems to occur sporadically.

One thing I did notice is, on the page, there is a div with the class jobsearch-JobComponent-embeddedBody. On pages that work, this div has some additional style attributes and on pages that are missing the scrollbar, the additional attributes are missing.

Page has scrollbar:
div class=“jobsearch-JobComponent-embeddedBody” style=“display: inline-block; height: calc(100vh - 140px);”>

Page missing scrollbar:
div class=“jobsearch-JobComponent-embeddedBody”>

Let me know if you’d like anything else.
