Feedback bar popping up in Chrome

Feedback bar popping up in Chrome

There is a really annoying pop up bar/tab popping up on the side of my screen when I use the TV feature in Chrome. If I do a search for a program, I can't see the first result. It blocks some of my DVR recordings. I have trouble getting rid of it. Sometimes I can minimize it if I drag it in exacly the right spot but then it just returns as soon as I do a different search or do something else. Is there a setting I can change to get rid of it? I've attached a picture

It is not a problem in IE. The bar is there but lower and smaller so it is not blocking anything. I don't have Firefox to test. For a long time (months), I couldn't do anything with xfinity on IE (it just cycled back to log in screen after I put in my credentials) so I just started only using Chrome by default whenever I needed email or tv access. Now (maybe after our X1 upgrade), I can finally use IE again, but I would like to see the problem fixed in Chrome just in case I need to use that again at some point.


Hi Jbrinkmeier,

 

We released an update to the XFINITY TV portal yesterday and the engineers attempted to fix this issue in that release. We've been having trouble reproducing it internally so wondering if you can let us know if it is now resolved?

 

Thanks,
ComcastDan

Re: Feedback bar popping up in Chrome

Have you tried to test this issue using IE or Firefox?

Thanks for letting us know about that issue with "Feedback". I'll let our technical team know and see if they have a bug open for it.  Can I ask which version of Chrome you are using and what your operating system is?  It helps for when they try to reproduce the issue.

 

Thank you,

ComcastDan

Yes, it appears to be resolved (see below). FYI, I am on laptop running Windows 7.

This does not appear to be resolved- as it continues to show on the screen, nad it also obscures the screen when I enlarge the screen.
