The Padding at the bottom of the chat window causes links dragged in to not copy over

As title. Over half of the height of my chat box within my chat window is actually “dead” pixels. If I drag an item to that chat and it happens to release in the lower half of the window, it fails to link. This is extraordinarily frustrating.

While we are discussing chat a toggleable sound prompt when someone talks in a chat you can turn on would be just about the best.
