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
