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

Expanding questions on the greatest hits page doesn't work properly on beta sites -- expansion is to the right instead of down.

See below:

enter image description here


  1. Go to [betasite] (this one, for example)
  2. Pick a random question and click "show full question"
  3. Observe how the question is expanded to the right instead of down

Reproducible on:

  • Firefox 9.0.1 on Linux Mint Debian x64 (with and without addons)
  • Firefox 11.0 on Ubuntu 12.01 beta x86 (with and without addons)
  • Firefox 9.0 on Win7 x64 (with and without addons)

Not reproducible on:

  • Chromium 16/17.0.versionoftheday, any platform
  • Internet Explorer 9
  • All non-beta sites (as far as I can tell)

Well the real bug is that we are even allowing for an ajax expand there, makes no sense imho.

It will be gone in the next build.
