New MBA 11 inch Trackpad 2 finger up scrolling not working

Not sure if this a known issue or just me but I found this morning that two finger scrolling upwards doesn't work on my MBA when I am browsing in Google Chrome. I observed it works in other apps including Safari. Thought of taking it to the Genius Bar then gave up because of the hassle of going through the replacement as I already put in full body zagg on my MBA.

Anybody observing this issue?

If it works in Safari, then it sounds like a software issue, not hardware. Is Google Chrome the only app where it does not work? I would try reinstalling Chrome and repairing permissions with Disk Utility

Yeah so far I only found it in Google Chrome. I did Repair Disk Permissions but it didn't help. I will reinstall after I go home and see if it helps.

This JUST happened to me with Chrome yesterday as well!
I'm anxious to find a solution...

I updated Chrome this afternoon and am having the same problem on my current-gen MBP. I don't think it's your hardware.

It's a known bug in Google Chrome. They already issued an update that fixes it. Update your Chrome.
