Why does the search bar in Super User and Server Fault have a width much larger than the search bar on other Stack Exchange sites like The Workplace?

Why are these not consistent?

    @rene - But it seems silly to constantly post these bugs - there is no review of this. How am I the one that finds most of these? Its the first thing that I noticed when opening any of the sites. – JonH Oct 10 '17 at 18:27

    @JonH well, it is probably the same problem I have with the software I deliver: I always have the UX peeps point out the glitches to me while I promised myself last time to not get caught by those same silly mistakes. I call it UX design blindness and most devs suffer from it. No cure yet :( – rene Oct 10 '17 at 18:33
  • @JonH We are looking into this. – Joe Friend Oct 10 '17 at 21:14
  • For some reason some sites are missing the CSS rule max-width: 400px; hence the search box is too wide. (Leaving this to the team to fix.) – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Oct 11 '17 at 6:49
  • @Adam yet again a missing rule... maybe some CSS change has been reverted by mistake to something before rolling out the new top bar across the network? – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Oct 11 '17 at 7:01

Thanks for reporting. I have pushed a fix internally, and now waiting for the next build for the fix to be published across those sites.

Should be in couple hours.
