Awaiting feedback Editor scrollbar glitch

Affected version
2.0.0 RC 2

This is probably something that needs to be passed down to Froala, but I wanted to report it here first in case it might be XF css related.

As images (or videos as a series of images) speak more than words: Video

It's probably really hard to reproduce I guess. This time it's definitly not zoom related, that video is taken on my desktop machine with no zoom in all places. The editor itself is located inside a form, much like the 'about you' field in account details, but without the sidebar on the left, on a max width display. If you (temporarily) delete the sidebar there via the browser inspector and turn of the left-padding on .p-body-content, you should be able to reproduce it with the following content:


[FONT=Courier New]Unser Leben lang haben sie uns erzählt, dass es hinter der Mauer nichts gibt, als die endlos arbeitenden Maschinen, und das ewige Ödland. Seit Hunderten von Jahren leben wir nun schon eingepfercht in Nova 07, und das Einzige was uns noch bleibt ist das Spiel, um aus unserer Realität zu fliehen.  ,,,,,,[/FONT]

This might be more of a browser quirk, as I believe the element height (vs the max-height) is actually just detected in the browser.

Which browser was the video made in? Firefox?
Latest Chrome on Win10.

Can you reproduce the issue on the Froala demo
I'll try once I get back to my computer.

Edit: @Chris_D I tried for a while, but can't reproduce it. I think this is mostly the case because the editor on their demo page doesn't scroll but increases it's height indefinitely though.

I've experimented around with a similar setup, but even entering height values with sub-pixel precision for the image doesn't yield any similar result unfortunately.

The used setup is:
<p><img src="https://i.imgur.com/CuOUfvN.jpg" class="fr-fic fr-dib" style="height: 119.499996185302727px"></p>

<p style="font-family: 'Courier New';">a,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,</p>
The height value seems kind of random, but it's actually as precise as I had the passion to get it. Turning the last digit into an 8 will display a scroll bar on my screen, leaving it at 7 will not. However, commas still won't trigger the behavior.

I've attempted to reproduce this and been unable to thus far.

Are you able to reproduce it here anymore? Relevant changes since you submitted this report are Chrome 63 being released and we're now running Froala 2.7.3 here.
