Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I registered with Stack Overflow today to ask another question, but I had the problem that the accept terms checkbox is not displaying.

I have to inspect the page using the developer tools to find the hidden checkbox, at which point it might become visible or I resort to focussing it via developer tools and then pressing the spacebar to toggle it.

Really frustrating. Seems only to be with checkboxes.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

sample code/link to problem site? What is the question? – Nupul Oct 14 '11 at 1:21
Sounds like your browser has a problem, but probably not a question for SO. Maybe for meta. – Doozer Blake Oct 14 '11 at 1:22
I use chrome, and checkboxes --including on Stackoverflow-- work fine for me. Is it possible that you've installed a user stylesheet, or a "user script"? Both can do things like hide checkboxes from you (and lots of other stuff too). – Lee Oct 14 '11 at 1:33
They do test on chrome, however I'm sending this to meta. Please update your question regarding the exact Chrome version you are using and OS. Note, beta builds of Chrome are not supported. – Tim Post Oct 14 '11 at 12:11
Yeah Stack Overflow developers, why do you only test your .Net code on Mac and Firefox? – Loïc Wolff Oct 14 '11 at 12:51
@TimPost OS is likely relevant in this case too, since my money is on it being this long-running bug. – Tim Stone Oct 14 '11 at 16:50
@TimStone I edited my comment, but I think you nailed it. – Tim Post Oct 14 '11 at 17:28

There hasn't been any activity on this post in 3 years, and the bug @TimStone linked to above has been closed, so I don't think there's anything to do here. Also, the design of many, many things is different now.
