So my first question would be: where is this file? We can't help you
much if we don't know what you're doing. :)

This version of WebKit is extremely old and insecure; you won't be able
to get any support for it upstream, sorry. If you can reproduce with
the latest stable version, currently 2.14.2, then you could file a bug
report for the scrollbar appearing unnecessarily.

I did a quick check of the CentOS sources [1] and it looks like the
only change between 7.2 and 7.3 was a German translation update, so no
guesses as to what could have caused the change in behavior. I had
thought modern WebKit was coming to CentOS, because Red Hat was working
on another GNOME rebase and it's needed for that, but looks like that
didn't happen for 7.3.
