I can confirm it on Fedora Silverblue 36, Gnome 42, audacity Flatpak. Scrollbar at the bottom of the window is missing if the sound is longer than the selected section on the screen.

audacity Flatpak.
The Flatpak version is a 3rd party build. Please try the official AppImage from Audacity. It's available here: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/
According to the comment at the bottom of this bug report, it's been fixed: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/2937

OK, thank you for answer. I tried to delete config files and test the appimage. The behaviour is same. Scrollbar appears only if I maximize and back minimize the window.

Update: Apparently not.

(I've checked the latest development build AppImage, and the bug is still present. The workaround is to toggle between a maximised Audacity window and a non-maximised Audacity window.)

I also get the same problem with the 3.2.1 appimage on KDE Neon based on Ubuntu 22.04, and I'm just posting to say the unmaximizing/maximizing trick does work here.

Note that unmaximizing doesn't mean minimizing, nor toggling to a different audacity window, but merely hitting the maximize/restore icon between the minimize and close icons on the window.
