UX: prevent scrollbars on initial panel load (PR #8456)

On initial page view, clicking the user-menu gives you a panel with a loading spinner while we fetch the notifications. As the spinner spins, it causes its parent container height to change. This leads to scrollbars.

This PR gives that parent a fixed height to prevent its height from changing and thus prevent the scrollbars from showing.
