When I move my mouse over the little inbox icon, it gets highlighted pretty well:

 top bar 1

Sure, it's half a pixel off-center, but it's pretty good.

But when I move my mouse over my reputation notification:

 top bar 2

The grey is the wrong size! It looks weird. Not only is it not centered, it's too thin.

This happens in Firefox 39.0 and Chrome 41.0.2272.43. It doesn't affect the mobile site.

    Fun fact: exact same bug, reported by a different user, got tons of downvotes. Jul 28, 2015 at 6:01
  • @ShadowWizard: It's tempting to think it's just because it's, y'know, nicael, but I've seen a fair number of his bug reports get upvotes, so I don't think that's it. Not sure though. Jul 28, 2015 at 6:05
  • @Nathan well, no doubt that with nicael, many users' finger is way more light on the downvote trigger. Jul 28, 2015 at 6:23
  • @ShadowWizard it's funny how nicael's question gets -2 but this gets +6! +1 BTW Jul 28, 2015 at 10:30
  • @ᔕᖺᘎᕊ yeah, no +1 from me but also no -1 Jul 28, 2015 at 11:05

Upon doing an inspect element on the recent achievements, it seems like the fixed width is causing the issue.

.topbar .icon-achievements {
    /* width: 36px; */
    background-position: -220px -54px;
    position: relative;
}

Here is the screenshot of Fixed "width: 36px;" (as currently set):

I commented out the CSS width property (width: 36px) from the class ".topbar .icon-achievements" and it fixes the issue.

The other options here is to set the "width: inherit;" which inherits width that defined by parent. I tried this and it worked too. Upon changing "width" to "inherit" value, now hovering over the link it shows "43.0781px" as the width and not "36px".

Now here is how it looks upon setting "width: inherit;" (or just commenting out):

enter image description here

And, we could add a padding for left and right space to it.

.topbar .icon-achievements {
    /* width: 36px; */
    width: inherit;
    background-position: -220px -54px;
    padding: 0px 3px 0px 3px;
    position: relative;
}

Here is how it looks now: (notice the padding on left and right side of +7400)

enter image description here

And finally, to fix the off-center issue, change the "margin-top:" property value of the ".topbar .icon-achievements .unread-count" class.

.topbar .icon-achievements .unread-count {
    .
    .
    margin-top: 10px; /* changed from 9px; */
    .
    .
}

There might be another way to achieve this but that's what I can think of at the moment. The values I used for padding and margin-top properties are for example purpose only. The actual value can be set as per the UI design requirement.
