Hey! I am using Chrome (version 36.0.1985.125 m) and I found it very difficult to set my date of birth on the account setup page. It didn't have enough room for a full date of birth in the field, if I wanted to try typing in a date, as opposed to using the Calendar control.
For what it's worth, I'm using the same version of Chrome and it worked fine for me. The field is smaller than the text would show but I just kept typing in mmddyyyy format (without dashes) and it filled it all in.
