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

When you first are shown a question in the Suggested Edit review queue, the Approve, Reject and Improve buttons (which are disabled for the first second or two) now look like this:

And then when the buttons are enabled, they look like this:

not-so-blurry image

Maybe I'm being overly picky, but the "disabled" buttons look fairly blurry and/or out-of-focus, and is pretty jarring to see.

It only lasts a second or two before the buttons become enabled, but surely there must be a better way to show disabled buttons. I know, I know, it just rolled out, but still...

EDIT: This may only be impacting Internet Explorer 8.

Your 3D glasses haven't come in the mail yet? I've got mine, and those buttons look good. – Josh Caswell Feb 5 '13 at 21:41
No, I just my sticker last week, I expect the glasses may take a while. – LittleBobbyTables Feb 5 '13 at 21:42
Hmm, what browser? This is what it looks like to me: (I'm on Chrome) – Bart Feb 5 '13 at 21:43
Looks fine in IE9 (by which I mean, uglier than Chrome/Firefox, less ugly than this). The background should be gray. – Shog9 Feb 5 '13 at 21:50
@Bart -- wow, that's pretty different. This is on IE 8; the buttons do look fine on my Droid. I've edited my title. Don't know if this is more appropriate as Support or Bug. – LittleBobbyTables Feb 5 '13 at 21:51
@Shog9 - yup, I see that when reviewing from my phone. On my browser, they're all dark gray; the background color never changes, the font just shifts one pixel up and left when "enabled". I've uploaded a before-and-after picture. – LittleBobbyTables Feb 5 '13 at 21:53
They're not going to push a fix that only affects IE8. ;P – animuson Feb 5 '13 at 22:05

IE8 is no longer a supported browser, so we won't be fixing this explicitly.

I think it might have been fixed incidentally (at least IE10's IE8 compatibility mode thinks it has been, for whatever's that worth).

No, I just tested, it's still fugly in an IE8 browser, but fortunately we've actually gotten out of the stone age and updated our browsers. – LittleBobbyTables Mar 7 '13 at 20:37
