Google Chrome Cant Upload Images Answered

In Google Chrome the past few days when you click on the upload images button the 'Upload, Cancel, Image Library' Buttons are out of view at the bottom of the screen. There is no scroll bar to get down to them, making the image uploader non working for me in Chrome. For now I'm using Firefox , but Firefox just doesn't invade my personal privacy to the degree that Chrome does, therefore it's psychic link ability to read my mind is not as strong as with Chrome. (Passwords, Search suggestions, autofill, etc.)

Attatched is an image. There is a scroll bar on the side of the browser window but it doesnt scroll the image uploader, just the page behind it.

Don't see much on the image :(
But Chrome loves to play tricks here too.
I noticed in some cases it is enough to flush the DNS cache (ipconfig /flushdns) and to restart Chrome.
Especially when you love to keep browser windows active, e.g. open when you shut down the PC, things get lost somewhere.
Last resort before thinking of a bug is to do it all together, flush DNS cache, clear the browser cache and to restart the browser.

When youhave the misplaced buttons: Are other websites that had been open alread showing weird symptoms too?
In my case changing the windows does not always show the real contnt, parts of the previously open window are not replaced by the new one.
When this gets really bad I can change the browser tabs but the actual content does not change until it is so bad that all freezes.

I flushed the dns then tried the uploader, still not working. Cleared browser cache, still no. Restarted windows still no. I remember seeing something about using the old uploader but dont know how to do that.

I don't know if the site use Flash or something like that for image upload, but might be worth checking if you have two versions installed.
Chrome comes with it's own Flash plugin, and if the Adobe Flash is installed on the PC as well it can interfere.
You can check the plugins over the settings page (about:config) and disable the other Flash pluging if installed.
I had massive problems at one stage after an update as some security settings changed, so some websites, including Instructables lost some functions.

Down under, it was a simple case of I needed to control minus the screen size. Not a bug after all.

Great you got it sorted!
But still a bug.
Screen size should not matter for uploading images.
In any case good you have it now working and thanks for the feedback.

Hey down under, sorry I didnt see your reply until just now. Usually messages are notified to me in my email but sometimes I dont see them until I like at my backtalk page.

I will say that I do tend to leave my browser window active. The only sites I typically leave up in the active browser are instructables and gmail. Yes I have similar glitches with chrome to you as to content freezing entirely in the browser windows yet the pc otherwise running fine. My gmail also does commonly give me some message about a bad dns config so I will say that you have probably exactly identintified the problem. Not sure though. I am going to try your suggestions and then make another reply.

This is a common problem and its not chrome thats causing it. Your screen is too big! Try hitting control and - to shrink the screen, or command - if you have a Mac. To blow it back up control+
