I just noticed in passing that MathJax alignment in this answer has become very ugly - see the excerpt below. The string of $x$'s is wavering up and down. I don't recall seeing this when the answer was composed. MathJax 2.7.0, Chrome v54.0.2840.59 — woff or otf fonts, Win7 Pro 64b. The problem does not occur in the latest version of FireFox in the same environment, so it may be Chrome specific.

Update Another datapoint: my Zoom was at 90% in Chrome, so the bug may depend on that (reproduced by DanielR at 90% and 125% Zoom - see comments). At 100% Zoom there is no problem. FireFox looks ok at all zoom levels.

    $\begingroup$ No repro. Seems to be your browser (or maybe it's the font's fault). $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Nov 2 '16 at 14:05
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer It may well depend on the fonts and/or MathJax config - which hasn't changed on my end since the answer was composed. $\endgroup$ – Bill Dubuque Nov 2 '16 at 14:06
  • $\begingroup$ Also no reproduction, using Chrome on 64-bit Windows 7 with Common HTML as my Math Renderer setting. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Nov 2 '16 at 14:07
  • $\begingroup$ It's aligned for me whether I use HTML-CSS, Common-HTML, or SVG as the renderer, so the problem seems to be on your end. Chrome is my first suspect. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Nov 2 '16 at 14:12
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer Yes, it may be specific to Chrome since I just verified that it doesn't occur in the latest version of FireFox. $\endgroup$ – Bill Dubuque Nov 2 '16 at 14:15

    $\begingroup$ I have the same behavior at 90 % zoom in Chrome. A similar thing happens also at 125 %. $\endgroup$ – Daniel R Nov 2 '16 at 14:26
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielR Thanks for the confirmation (and thanks to others who also tested). $\endgroup$ – Bill Dubuque Nov 2 '16 at 14:27

    $\begingroup$ This might be github.com/mathjax/MathJax/issues/1498, due to a bug in WebKit/Safari and Blink/Chrome. $\endgroup$ – Peter Krautzberger Nov 2 '16 at 19:33
