On IE11, if you open a Connect mini chat window, minimize it via the expand/collapse button (-), and then later expand it, the scrollbar on the chat window is dislocated and the left side of chat messages are cut off.


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open an incident.

  2. Click the Follow button.

  3. Open the new chat created.
