When I go to delete a tag synonym (clicking on the ⊗ button, which I believe is a ♦-only tool), a popup asks me whether I want to “Really delete this synonym?” Since the tag names are in the far left of the window and the remove button is on the far right, it's pretty hard to be sure that I'm deleting the right synonym. This should really be mentioned in the confirmation popup.

I would have used a screenshot which includes the confirmation dialog. – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 11 '11 at 2:02
@PaŭloEbermann The confirmation popup is a modal dialog. So, far too much work. – Gilles Sep 11 '11 at 2:03

Alternatively, just highlight the row on hover:

Trying to reproduce this, I seem to have found another bug, maybe only in Opera (11.51):


On hovering the (x) buttons, they shift the color, but they don't shift back when moving the mouse somewhere else. This makes finding the right line even more difficult.

That happens on Chrome too, but I don't know how that possibly makes it harder to click the right one – Michael Mrozek Sep 11 '11 at 5:13
Not makes it harder to click the right one, but makes it harder to memorize which one I clicked. – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 11 '11 at 11:49
