On the main question list (main site and meta), I see this:


The questions are cut off at some narrow width as if something is overlayed on top of them. I have seen this in Firefox 3.6.9 on a Mac 10.4 and on 3.6.10 on Linux. If I click "questions" then everything is correct. I do have the ability to run DOM inspector if there is any more useful info that I can provide. But I can't seem to find which element is on top of the questions.

I was able to fix the problem in DOM inspector by deleting the overflow-x and overflow-y (!) CSS rules on the question-mini-list div. But I have no idea why that helps.

  • $\begingroup$ @Jin: This problem happens even if I manually reset the zoom and reload the page. But since you suggested it I tried also changing my font settings, and now I see that does eliminate the problem. If I change the minimum font size to a smaller minimum, then everything works fine. But if I increase the minimum font size, the questions get cut off like in the picture. I'm used to minor display glitches from having a minimum font size, but this is the first time I have seen such a significant change. $\endgroup$ Oct 27 '10 at 19:24
  • $\begingroup$ I see. thank you for the helpful info. I'll fix this asap. I've seen this glitch on FF4 before. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I also had this problem in Firefox 3.6.11 on Windows 7. I had to reduce the zoom amplification of the text. $\endgroup$ Oct 27 '10 at 19:57
  • $\begingroup$ I also have this problem in Firefox 3.6.12, in Ubuntu 8.10 $\endgroup$ Oct 30 '10 at 4:07
