As you can see, the pop-up that tells me, that I have downvoted this question gets overlapped by the question itself:

Strange overlapping stuff

EDIT: This also happens on other message boxes:

Strange overlapping stuff, Volume 2

EDIT 2: This shows the issue in Opera 11.61 (Thank you, Rocket):

Opera

    Try invoking more orange messages for example post two comments in a row - there should be 30 seconds diff and if you try to post before, orange message appears as well. Mar 8, 2012 at 15:27
  • Ok, I updated my post with another message box.

    So this is most likely z-index issue with the styles of orange box and "faded" text. Mar 14, 2012 at 12:11

    I'm seeing the same issue in Chrome 18.0.1025.58 beta-m and Firefox 11 (well, actually Waterfox). It seems to work ok in IE 9.

  • In Opera 11.61, it looks a little different. Both the post and orange box are transparent, but the orange box it on top. i.imgur.com/eQkaq.png

This bug has been targeted and destroyed. The error messages should no longer take on the opacity of the transparent div after the next build.

    This probably fixes the same problem on the elections page, if you want to confirm and mark it status-completed. The flagging dialog has a similar problem, but that's likely a separate fix.
