reset your zoom level. Chrome dev track float glitch (21.0.1155.2 dev-m) – Sathya Jun 4 '12 at 12:49
@nic - I'll bet marking a bug as [status-declined] feels really good ;) – Lix Jun 4 '12 at 13:05
it's not the zoom issue, i'm on zoom 100% – marmor Jun 4 '12 at 13:05
@Lix - after a 2 week vacation, it's a good way to start back, yes :) – Nick Craver Jun 4 '12 at 13:05
@Sathya: I've seen this on a few sites in 21.0.1155.2 dev-m and reset zoom level does fix it, but that doesn't appear to work on SO. – Dan Atkinson Jun 4 '12 at 13:32
.fl, .question-summary { float: none !important; } will fix it in Chromium 21.0.1152.0. Add it to custom.css – Paul Sweatte Jan 8 '13 at 21:41

No repro here on Win7/64 in Chrome "20.0.1132.21 beta-m".

I think this is a problem with the dev build. We do not support pre-release browsers.

Feel free to report it to them as a bug though.

edit: I can't repro on "21.0.1163.0 canary" either

Yeah, I had seen this issue on Canary a few days ago. Gone now. – Manishearth Jun 4 '12 at 12:56
Thanks, if this doesn't go away in a few days I'll report to chromium. – marmor Jun 4 '12 at 13:02

IMO, Stack Overflow doesn't have to accommodate for developer branches or unstable versions of browsers...

By using an unstable/non-final version of a browser you are opening yourself up to the possibility that your browsing experience will not be perfect.

Chrome dev is an unsupported browser.

From here:

"We support current and previous versions of all browsers with some reasonable amount of market share, but not beta or dev versions." –Jeff, paraphrased (source); subsequently reaffirmed by other devs

The bug is on Chrome's side, and SE probably won't do anything to fix it. Wait for a millisecond-update. Or switch to Canary and install beta/stable alongside it.
