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

NOTE: By "description box", I mean the yellow box that appears when you are editing an option on your CV. The contents of the box explain the option that you are editing.

Normally, all of the editable options on the "Edit CV" page on Careers have description boxes appear when you begin editing. However, this is not the case for the "What Type of Work are You Seeking?" option. I noticed that the only way to make the description box appear is by clicking Tab from the option above ("Background").

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but it contradicts the norm that is expressed by the design of the rest of the options on the page.

What browser are you experiencing this problem in?

We've identified an issue with IE7 and its display of the help text ("description box") - a fix for this will be pushed tonight.

We're now forcing a .focus() call on the checkboxes when they're clicked - a needed workaround for Chrome/Safari mouse focus handling.

This fix will be pushed tonight.

I'm using Chrome I'll check tomorrow if it's working for me. – Maxim Zaslavsky Jan 5 '10 at 5:58
Same problem for Chrome – Ikke Jan 5 '10 at 13:26
Gotcha - seems Chrome/Safari don't fire focus events when checkboxes are interacted with via a mouse: – Jarrod Dixon Jan 7 '10 at 7:09
