Gray Line When Scrolling

I'm not sure why I'm just noticing this now but it seems like there is a gray line that shows up when you're zoomed in on a webpage and scrolling that typically would be at the bottom of the screen but it seems like now it's about a quarter of the way up from the bottom of the screen. I've searched the forum and didn't see other posts specifically related to this other than one with no response is this after a new update? I've had iPads since the very first generation and I've never noticed this before and it's annoying as hell. Currently I'm using an iPad mini.

This continues to drive me nuts. Can someone else with the mini please chime in if you experience the same line when even slightly zoomed in on a page and scrolling? It doesn't happen on the regular iPad and why they have the line mid screen is beyond me. Is this every mini?
***immediately after posting now I can't get it to show up? So this is only on occaision? Weird it literally just did it a min ago.

That looks like the right/left scroll bar that's not refreshing or is becoming "attached" to the picture. Can you replicate it? If so, the more you zoom in the shorter the bar should be. If you tap or move the screen does it dissappear?

I wanna say I've seen it before but I don't recall if it was on my Mini or one of the other devices. I can't replicate it now though but the issue does seem familiar.

It's already returned. Yes the more you zoom the smaller it becomes. I just don't understand why it's all of a sudden and not always there. It's definitely only when zoomed and the. Scrolling up and down, but the bar is the left to right scroll if that makes sense. I may stop by apple and listen to the "genius" because it bugs me and I want to know if its all minis

At least it's software so Apple can just push out an update to fix it.

I've experienced this on my mini. I found this thread by binging the issue. Now that I've found the thread, I can't recreate it. Bizarre.

This also happens on my iPad 3 running iOS 5.1.1. Odd enough, it didn't start until after I read this thread a few hours ago.

Seems like it comes and goes but most often it's there, for me at least. I've yet to see much else anywhere. If someone is up to speed on reporting a bug by all means please do so.

It could easily be a frame issue with the web page itself, and not actually have anything to do with the browser software.

-FWIW, my handle is iThink_ergo_iMac. There seems to be some confusion on this issue.-

Still happens to me once in a while on Safari and Chrome.

If I want to get rid of it, I have to close Safari and delete it from the task manager. Happens randomly on any site, not sure how to reproduce it.

I have this issue as well - it comes and goes. If i pull up the multitask row, close/cancel the browser and then start it again, the line is gone.

During the two weeks i've owned the mini it has happened twice.
I've had the ipad4 for two months and it has never had this issue.

It's not really a big deal as long as it's not occuring all the time.

I see that line a lot when zoomed in. I was afraid mine was broken. Sounds now like it's a software issue. Glad to see it isn't just me.

I have not seen that kind of rendering errors but different kind of,web pages sometimes render corrupted, columns being misaligned, white boxes over content etc. Not what I expected to see with expensive device like this, but those are software based bugs atleast in my case because Safari is the only app which rendering errors, everything else works fine.

This happens to me as well and agree with other posters it is related to zooming. I have a habit of resting my left thumb on the screen when scrolling. if you do this the ipad zooms. It might be a very slight zoom, so that it is not noticeable except for the grey line. If you pinch your finger together in to stop the Zooming the line will disappear . If you zoom in and out the line will get bigger and smaller.

It may have something to do with the placement of the on screen keyboard even when it is not in use. I thought I had a problem similar to this, but cant recall the solution.
