Chrome Browser SCROLL BAR MISSING on Amazon prime video page

Thank you for taking a look.
Using Windows 7 64 bit and latest Google Chrome Browser.

Trying to Forcibly Enable the
Scroll Bar onto the viewing page of Amazon Prime Video.

Issue is very common on Amazon forum, and my discussion with
customer service went nowhere.

Try another browser like Firefox Quantum!

I have Amazon Prime. There is no Scrollbar on some pages, when there is nothing further to display.

Snick, I have used Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome.

I mostly used Firefox, when suddenly no matter what I did it was SLOOOOOOOOOOW.

Tried Chrome for the first time and it moves in HYPER SPEED. That is what a browser is
supposed to do : MOVE FAST FAST FAST. Firefox is SLOOOOOOOW.

Snick, I first tried clearing browser history, then rebooting, then reinstalled FF. It used to be fantastic, now it is a lame piece of cow SLOW SLOW SLOW dung.

Not 100% sure I know where you are talking about.

Lets say I can access this page with thumbnails:

Chrome Browser SCROLL BAR MISSING on Amazon prime video page-amazon-prime-movies-1-.jpg

However, there are no scrollbars on this page:

Chrome Browser SCROLL BAR MISSING on Amazon prime video page-amazon-prime-movies-2-.jpg

A few things to try.

TIPS:

1) Try using middle mouse button (mouse flywheel) to scroll up and down.

2) Make sure you are logged in to the correct Amazon account.

3) Press F5 on the keyboard to refresh the browser webpage.

Thank you iko22. If I wanted to use the middle mouse button/flywheel, I would not be asking about how to restore the
Scroll Bar to the Amazon Prime Video thumbnails page.

That page is HUGE and REQUIRES a VERY RAPID way to scroll. The mouse is Glacial.


Yes I am logged in to the correct account.
Yes, I have tried refreshing the browser page, many times.

I have posted here, on Chrome forum ( a joke, no techs EVER look at it) and the Amazon forum ( a joke, these rapist greed scum never read it)

April 1, 2019 6:09:32 AM Initial Question: You are EXTREMELY aware of this issue, since literally thousands of people have reported it. I am writing to ask EXACTLY WHEN are you going to finally resolve the issue of missing scroll bar on Amazon Prime Video?
April 1, 2019 6:09:55 AM Anish has accepted the chat.
April 1, 2019 6:09:59 AM masterevan : Me: You are EXTREMELY aware of this issue, since literally thousands of people have reported it. I am writing to ask EXACTLY WHEN are you going to finally resolve the issue of missing scroll bar on Amazon Prime Video?

April 1, 2019 6:14:16 AM Anish (CSA) : Please be informed that scroll option is available on Chrome browser through mouse only.
April 1, 2019 6:15:12 AM masterevan : Why? Are the developers not aware that Chrome is the most popular browser in the world, which means you will lose millions of angry and frustrated customers?
April 1, 2019 6:16:19 AM Anish (CSA) : Please understand that you can scroll for Prime videos on your chrome browser through mouse as you normally scroll on other websites.
April 1, 2019 6:17:22 AM masterevan : I understood, no need to repeat. This does not answer my question: WHY have you deliberately set it up like this? The scroll bar works in EVERY OTHER WEBSITE
April 1, 2019 6:18:59 AM Anish (CSA) : I'm sorry for this inconvenience.
April 1, 2019 6:19:02 AM Anish (CSA) : I've taken this as a feedback and forwarded it to Amazon Business team so that they can look at the matter for future improvement, so that our customers won't face such problems in future.

April 1, 2019 6:21:24 AM Anish (CSA) : I would like to tell you that layout of our website changes from time to time.

April 1, 2019 6:22:19 AM masterevan : This STILL does not answer my question: WHY WAS THE SCROLL BAR DELIBERATELY REMOVED?
April 1, 2019 6:24:00 AM Anish (CSA) : Evan, there's no answer to this question that why it has been removed.
April 1, 2019 6:24:24 AM Anish (CSA) : As I've explained layout changes with new updates.

April 1, 2019 6:29:59 AM masterevan : It is a simple question. Since THEY CHOSE TO CHANGE IT, they can ALSO put it back.
April 1, 2019 6:30:30 AM Anish (CSA) : Evan, I've forwarded it to our development team for improvement.
April 1, 2019 6:30:50 AM masterevan : Great. Cancel my account now, and email me when they finally fix it.
April 1, 2019 6:30:53 AM Anish (CSA) : I can't tell you exact time frame that when it willbe corrected.

April 1, 2019 6:36:42 AM masterevan : Since you are in Customer Service, WHY do the developers NOT TELL YOU WHY they do bad things?

So, it is official that the scrollbar has been removed. I cannot do much about that, nor your aversion to the mouse.

I can let you in to an apparently undocumented fact. The UP/DOWN ARROW Keys also cause any webpage to scroll. I've tested this out on Amazon Prime, and I found that the Arrow Keys were extremely fast at scrolling through the search results. Don't tell Amazon, or they might remove the feature, hey?
