This answer contains spoilers. Once you've clicked any of the links, your browser remembers you've visited them and the stylesheet applies new styles to them, which prevent them from being hidden normally by the spoiler:

  • They are all hidden for me. I'm using Firefox 38 on a Mac. Does this still occur in safe mode for you? Have you tried with a new profile? – Robert Longson May 21 '15 at 14:55

    I can reproduce this in Chrome. The links get a different style applied to them once they've been visited, which doesn't allow them to be hidden by the spoiler anymore. The reason you can't reproduce it in Chrome or on a new profile is because the links aren't remembered as visited in those places. – animuson May 21 '15 at 16:22

Spoiler CSS rules didn't consider visited links, so those got rendered fully.

This has been fixed and will be with you in the next build.
