In the latest version, 73.0, the overflow in web applications does not work anymore used without specifying height 100% on the containers. This leads to scrolling fixed menus or not overflowing long lists (they expand aaaall the way to the bottom instead of scrolling inside the list). Before v73.0, using display: flex, flex: auto and overflow it worked perfectly.

Reproducible on windows too.

We're seeing this at Tableau too. Also repros in Edge and Firefox so maybe Chrome fixed something that was broken per spec and broke us? Does not repro in Safari.

EDIT: adding `max-height: 100%` to the flex children seems to get the behavior in line with expectations. Still not sure if this is a bug or a feature :)

I'm seeing the same issue using Chrome Version 74.0.3729.108 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows. I've attached a picture of Edge version 42.17134.1.0 versus Chrome.

We're seeing this version on Chrome 74 as well. We cannot replicate the issue on a retina display - only on non-retina. At one point, it appeared to be triggered by a media query, but we've deduced that this is not the case. As mentioned above, it seems to be random.

Seeing this on Mac Chrome 74.0.3729.131 intermittently on non-retina screens. Works fine retina screens.

For my application also same issue on Chrome 77. Looks like the items in Flexbox container cannot fit 100% height as usual.
