Gutenberg Editor flickers while going from bottom to top

Reported by: kamlesh08's profile kamlesh08 Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 5.4

Describe the bug
When we write 3-4 paragraphs on Gutenberg Editor and then scroll to the top, the size of right sidebar changes thus causing a noticeable flicker in the editor which distracts the user.

What happens is vertical scrollbar pops out when we scroll from bottom to top, however, it is hidden when we scroll from top to bottom!
Both behaviors are different and cause a distraction from the user's point of view.

Have a look at this video:

To reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

Go to any 'Page'.
Start writing 3-4 paragraphs in 'Gutenberg Editor'.
Scroll to the top.
See error.
Expected behavior
There should be no change in size of the right sidebar and the user should have distraction-free writing experience.

Hi @kamlesh08 ,

Thank you for creating a ticket. It is because of the scroll bar, appears when you reach the top of the page.

However, I've checked it in the same WordPress version 5.4 in the Ubuntu system and Chrome browser. There are no issues.

Please let me know if I missed something to re-generate it.

Hi @kamlesh08

I tested this with WordPress 5.4.2 and Google Chrome on macOS. It seems that the issue is caused by the Grammarly browser extension. More specifically by the Grammarly button that gets rendered outside the div of the block editor. So when the input which the Grammarly button is attached to gets scrolled out of the viewport, the Grammarly button (which is outside the block editor) follows the position of the input causing the scrollbar to appear.
