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

Seems like there is some weirdness rendering the question bar in Mac Firefox. Safari seems to work fine and so does Firefox in Windows.

Ugh. I love FF and am glad Mac folks can use it, too, but man, it's starting to take on a bit of an IE5/Mac flavor. – D_N Mar 14 '10 at 0:01
See that here too (FF v3.6, Mac OS 10.5.8). Hasn't been bothering me, though. – dmckee Mar 14 '10 at 0:50
FF + Mac doesn't seem to have freehand circles either :( – HAL 9000 Mar 14 '10 at 1:05

You can see the same wrong rendering on Windows and Firefox v3.6,
if you change the zoom level, ie if you zoom out with ctrl -

Indeed, the screen capture in the question seems to indicate downsizing (either by Firefox, or before posting the image). @Igor, did you try pressing Command-0 (zero) to reset to 100% zoom? – Arjan Mar 14 '10 at 13:05
I have pressed Cmd-0 and that was the result. I did see different results with different zoom levels however. The image appears resized due to being in the post. If you view the image by itself (i.e. "View Image") it's normal size. – Igor Zevaka Mar 14 '10 at 21:40
Huh, seems OK now. I think either me or my computer had gremlins. Probably me... – Igor Zevaka Apr 3 '10 at 4:21

I don't exhibit this behavior.

Firefox 3.6 / OS X 10.6.2

Firefox 3.5.8 + OS X 10.6.2 looks fine too. – Ether Mar 14 '10 at 16:43

This only happens when zoomed out. Zoom back to 100% and it's fine.

I doubt there's anything the StackOverflow team can do about this via their code; it's clear that Firefox is simply screwing up borders upon being zoomed out.
