    • This is reproducible in the Anniversary Update as well. Just go to a profile page: eg: and wait a second and you’ll see the banner image change sizes. It’s as though something is invalidating the styles for some reason, but we’ll need to fully reduce it to understand why. If I provide the Chrome UA string this does no repro so this means we are being served slightly different content. I’ll reach out to the OP and see if this repros for them as well.

    • The issue seen in the YouTube video is caused by Caret Browsing (F7). When Caret Browsing is enabled, clicking in the right-side of the page will cause a cursor to be placed, the viewport to be scrolled. Disabling Caret Browsing resolves this behavior.

    • I can confirm that disabling Caret Browsing (which I didn’t know I had enabled) fixed the issue. Thanks to both of you for your help.
