Currently Being ModeratedJun 3, 2010 7:06 PM (in response to Looter)HI,
Go to the Safari Menu and click Safari/Empty Cache, relaunch Safari and see if that makes a difference.
Could you post a link to the site where you see this?
Try clicking the green button top left in your Safari window.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 6, 2010 5:02 AM (in response to Looter)I have the same problem, and even though I haven't been able to stop it from happening periodically, I have a workaround that is a bit faster and less annoying than quitting Safari and relaunching every time.
I set my Safari preferences to open "same page" when I click on new tab. So far, this has always opened the site with the scroll bar available. Then I just close the tab without the scroll bar.
Best of all, any other open tabs and/or windows are unaffected.iMac 2.4 GHz Intel, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 7, 2010 9:54 AM (in response to frankbq)Thanks for the ‘same page’ tip. I’ll give that a try next time.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 10, 2010 9:42 AM (in response to Looter)Just another data point to say that I'm having this same issue. I did a fresh install of Safari 5 today, restarted, and just started seeing this on a page I am developing.
The above "same page" workaround works for me, but this seems to be a long-standing bug (I've found references to it and older versions of Safari).
Hopefully this will be patched soon. I have submitted a bug report to Apple as well.MacBook Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 10, 2010 1:46 PM (in response to Looter)By chance does this happen after you go to a pdf page and then go to a regular web page? I've had that problem with Safari 4. The only solution I have found is to open a new page and use the history to return to the page I need. It's really annoying, but the bug seems persistent...Powerbook circa Spring 2006, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Safari 4.0.5
Currently Being ModeratedJun 27, 2010 9:18 AM (in response to 0xC0FFEE)Also, this seems to happen in things that use Safari (WebKit) for web views, like the Dictionary.app. I also have issues with Dictionary not correctly displaying the vertical scrollbar after updating Safari.
example: (note that resizing the window DOES sometimes display a scrollbar, but not allowing full scrolling of the view)

Currently Being ModeratedJun 27, 2010 9:57 AM (in response to 0xC0FFEE)I've seen it in Dictionary, but only for wikipedia content - supposedly wiki altered their code & although all the content is there, you cannot scroll & see it.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 29, 2010 10:54 AM (in response to Susan Mackie)Im getting this all the time now... havent noticed it before 5.0.1. Safari is pretty much useless to me now. Going to have to look for an earlier version or switch to Firefox

Currently Being ModeratedAug 12, 2010 10:43 AM (in response to Frozo)I am having this happen all the time. I think more in Safari 5 than in Safari 4. Never before version 4. I find I have to shut down safari and restart. That is a pain in the neck. I am trying to do my work and debate about using Firefox more due to this. The problem is that Firefox is slower and when I am working, time is important.
I have been looking at the discussion for a while hoping to see someone help solve the problem. I have cleaned out my cache. I have shut down the computer. I have done all of the troubleshooting possible. It is not our problem but a problem that should be addressed by Apple and not a workaround--- we need it fixed.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 26, 2010 5:29 AM (in response to Ilia Nagaev)I'm using Safari 5.0.3 in OS 10.6.5
When I opened this page (as with lots of others) there was no scroll bar on the right.
I tried the open same page in new tab trick and it worked.
This is a quite unimpressive flaw.
Anyone from Apple hearing this?
