The current design triggers "disappearing address fields" quite often, so
the current design/default-settings is apparently not so intuitive...

Sometimes, humorous/outlandish suggestions trigger other ideas...  
Check out a little book titled "Poke the box"   :)

That's only by convention. Left-handed people might prefer the scroll bar
on the left side; some apps allow for that. Top v. bottom too.

It amazes me to see some apps insist on knowing better, while the poor
end-user puts way more miles on the mouse than necessary...

Increasing the minimum height for the Header area might be the simplest
