The old HTML-CSS renderer was configured to allow automatic line breaks in long formulas:

<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
    MathJax.Hub.Config({"HTML-CSS": [...], linebreaks: { automatic:true }, [...]
    [...]
});
</script>        

However, the new CommonHTML renderer is not configured as such, and so long formulas overflow the width of the post. I guess it's an oversight (that would be rather easy to fix). The MathJaX docs recommends these options for automatic line breaking:

<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
MathJax.Hub.Config({
  CommonHTML: { linebreaks: { automatic: true } },
  "HTML-CSS": { linebreaks: { automatic: true } },
         SVG: { linebreaks: { automatic: true } }
});
</script>

(This was previously reported in the MathJaX 2.6 beta thread, but since it seems to be a configuration error on SE's end rather than a bug in MathJaX, I thought it would be best to report it in its own thread.)

I've added the options for CommonHTML and SVG. Let us know if anything breaks.

The change will be deployed in rev 2016.1.6.3152.
