    $\begingroup$ Does this answer your question? Multiline MathJax on title $\endgroup$ Jan 25, 2022 at 19:02
  • $\begingroup$ It doesn't answer anything. The cases I just posted are even more egregious than those. $\endgroup$ Jan 25, 2022 at 19:05

    $\begingroup$ No need for the snark, it’s an automated message that I can’t really control. My understanding is that both posts are reporting the same bug, in which case one ought to be marked as a duplicate of the other. $\endgroup$ Jan 25, 2022 at 19:08

    $\begingroup$ No snark intended. Just frustration. My experience with duplicates in general postings is that we tend only to flag duplicates when there is an actual answer in the original post. But so much flagging goes on these days, I'm definitely out of step with it all. Robjohn is suggesting that I migrate this to meta.SE because he says the problem is not unique to math.SE. $\endgroup$ Jan 25, 2022 at 19:10

    $\begingroup$ I completely understand the frustration. Hopefully, the SE devs will fix the issue asap, since it's already been reported on Meta SE and has a status tag attached to it... $\endgroup$ Jan 25, 2022 at 19:13

    $\begingroup$ Thank you for letting me know that. So I won't go through the trouble of migrating and reposting my pictures :) $\endgroup$ Jan 25, 2022 at 19:15

    $\begingroup$ It looks like the new layout has class s-post-summary--content-title set to have display: inline-block, which is a shrink-wrap container. That means MathJax will not know the maximum width that can be used but instead uses the width of the shrunk container and breaks the math accordingly. If this were changed to display: block I think the display would be unaffected, but MathJax would get the correct width and so line breaks would work properly. If you use the developer tools to change that CSS by hand and then run MathJax.Hub.Reprocess() in the console, it works for me. $\endgroup$ Jan 25, 2022 at 21:31

    $\begingroup$ @DavideCervone: Thanks! I tried that and the display looks correct. Hopefully the SE devs will implement this soon. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @robjohn Is there a way for us to modify this ourselves? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @PedroTamaroff: I just did what Davide suggested. It only lasts until the page is refreshed. If you are talking about fixing the bug, I think we need to wait until the SE devs change the CSS code. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ According to this comment it looks like they have fixed the CSS. Checking the math.SE home page, it looks like that has done the trick. $\endgroup$ Jan 27, 2022 at 16:14
  • $\begingroup$ @DavideCervone Thanks for your help! $\endgroup$ Jan 27, 2022 at 16:18
  • $\begingroup$ @TedShifrin, no problem. $\endgroup$ Jan 27, 2022 at 16:19
  • $\begingroup$ @DavideCervone: indeed, I have looked at several pages that had this issue, and all look to have the proper s-post-summary--content-title. Thanks for the help! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @DavideCervone: yes, adding width:100%; works on both the Votes and Responses tabs! $\endgroup$
