Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I noticed that every time I click on "add comment", both my own comment and the comments above get expanded horizontally a bit, so they move partly under the text on the right. Refreshing the page clears the problem, and all comments are displayed correctly again, including my own comment.

I use Firefox on Windows Vista.


I only experience the problem at home, not at work apparently. At home it's Windows Vista. I'll take a screenshot tonight.

EDIT : screenshot : alt text

I can't reproduce this in firefox. I suspect you're using font size overrides instead of full page zoom. See:

Duuh! smash forehead Indeed, I use a bigger font size at home. Gonna change that, thx for the pointer. – Joris Meys Sep 8 '10 at 8:11
@JeffAtwood Got the same bug, but on Chrome, posted screenshot as an answer here. Could you please revisit this? – Yannis Jan 15 '12 at 9:17
The "Minimum font size" setting in both Opera and Chrome also trigger this behaviour. Haven't tested any other browsers. It happened to me if I set the value higher than 13. Been driving me mad for ages and finally glad to discover the source. – Burhan Ali May 5 '12 at 23:18
