When I post a tag into chat, borders on my tags are missing, but other's tags have them:

enter image description here

inspecting the page source, the style attribute for my tags are missing:

normal tag

<span class="ob-post-tag" style="background-color: #E0EAF1; color: #3E6D8E; border-color: #3E6D8E; border-style: solid;">redacted</span>

my tags

<span class="ob-post-tag" style="">border</span>

This persists through a refresh, and others see the same thing. Only my tags appear to be affected.

This seems to be a client issue.

  • Persistent even after a browser restart.
  • Persistent between different browsers on the same computer. ()
  • Persistent between different users on the same computer.
  • Not persistent however between computers (but on the same user).

Showing that this issue is specific to a computer:

This should be fixed now. Old chat messages affected by this will not be repaired, but any new messages shouldn't be affected. I never really found a way to reproduce it, so if it happens again just drop a comment here and I'll see what's up.

  • Out of curiosity, what was the root cause? Sep 11, 2013 at 16:36
  • I figured out a fix without really getting to the root, but the proximate cause was that a styling string that should have been injected into the rendering was null. The root cause would be whatever is causing that, but that's the part I couldn't reproduce. It's intermittent and fairly rare. Sep 11, 2013 at 17:36
