Icons for MSE, SO, Programmers look like messed up in user profile. Am I only one observing this?

Below is example screen shot showing messed up icons in this user profile to the left and as a reference the correct icons as they appear in network profile for the same user to the right:

  • ...though maybe Puzzling icon for Programmers is okay, it can be a part of new site name and scope changes

  • @zondo is that the latest version you can use? I think my FF did something weird at version 47 and iirc 46. In the same time, Chrome and IE 11 worked well. It wasn't on Linux though

  • Interesting. Firefox 47 doesn't have a problem for me.

    Problem appears for me too. Favicons are selected based on y-index from the icons "mega image". Looks like SE have added another site somewhere in the list, which caused all the icons below it to shift 32 pixels, which means that affected sites appear as the icon 32 pixels below them in the "mega image". In the case of your screenshots, Puzzling.SE icon is 32 pixels below Programmers.SE.

    @Adam wrong dupe. This is the actual duplicate: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/281519/site-icons-misplaced (it's most likely another Varnish cache issue) Aug 24, 2016 at 13:02

    Huh! So you're being served a different Sprites, while the CSS which contain the positions is new. This explains the mis-position. I'm afraid the only solution is for a dev to purge that varnish. Aug 24, 2016 at 13:16

    @ShadowWizard Yep, it's the same issue... see my answer/comments on the dupe.

    @Adam thanks, though I still don't get what's going on with that Varnish cache. Aug 24, 2016 at 17:41

    @Quassnoi I'm not SE developer, just ordinary user like you, baffled by mysterious caches. (Or did you mean to ping Adam?) Aug 24, 2016 at 21:39
