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

Basically, if you view someone's profile page, and click and hold right on the edge of their username, like if you wanted to highlight their username, but instead of dragging directly to the right, you drag down-ward into their picture, it will cause my Google Chrome browser to move the line of text up (as if there was a line below it that it is trying to highlight;) and this will cause the user name to be cut off, and I think only a page refresh fixes this.

CSS error

As you can see, it is most noticeable on sites like Stack Exchange site Electrical Engineering, that use all CAPS for the username. This doesn't seem to happen here or on Stack Overflow. But it does happen on Skeptics and probably others.

As I pointed out, it is practically not an issue. It may only happen to me (I can't check another browser, because I'm at work (and probably won't care to later). I just figured I'd point it out.

Heh, that's amusing. I was able to reproduce. – Tim Stone Jan 8 '13 at 2:18
Reproducible in Safari 6.2 on Mac OS X 10.9 – Andy Dwyer Jan 8 '13 at 2:21
Reproduced in Chrome on Windows 7 as well, can't make it happen in Firefox though. – Shog9 Jan 8 '13 at 3:15
Reproducedon on a Win7 x64 in: Chrome v23.0.1271.97m Can't make happen in: IE9 (or previous IE browser modes!) nor Opera 11.64 b1403 32bit nor firefox 12. – Garrett Fogerlie Jan 8 '13 at 4:56
Another way to fix it is to drag select upwards. overflow:hidden on div.subheader should fix this problem. – Asad Saeeduddin Jan 8 '13 at 5:10
Also not reproduced in firefox on the linux system from the post. – Garrett Fogerlie Jan 8 '13 at 5:58
