What is up with the white bar at the bottom of every BB Simulator's browser? It almost seems like the Browser is reserving space for a horizontal scroll bar. This bar appears on all Simulators I have tried and all all web pages developed. It steals valuable screen real estate and is ugly as sin when you use background colors or images on your page.
Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

Can you post the OS version number of the Simulator where you are finding this issue?

I'm still having this issue - 9550 188.8.131.524 ; Help about says "BB Smartphone Simulator 184.108.40.206" when you scroll down or up there are chunks of white like shown above.

If you are seeing white space at the bottom of the screen on a BlackBerry widget it is because of the following...
The rendering of the content will size itself to the size of the body of the document. You can use CSS to ensure that the body of your content fills the entire screen.
An alternative approach is to set the background color of the widget in the config.xml file to fill this space with a solid color.

This has worked for me so far...
document.getElementById("mainBody").style.height = screen.height - 12 + "px";
Where "mainBody" is the ID of the body element of my widget.
