    @Ano As a general rule, give the people working on it a chance to post an answer. I don't need an immediate ping. ;) – Adam Lear Feb 14 '18 at 6:36

Fixed now, sorry it took so long. We're currently working on making our CSS more maintainable, but during work like that, ten years1 of technical front-end debt sometimes come back to bite you in the rear.

    I hope you have enough rear left then to be bitten in ... – rene Feb 14 '18 at 7:32

    As of right now, NOT COMPLETELY FIXED in ELU; comment editor is using Georgia. – Jeff Zeitlin Feb 14 '18 at 14:08
  • @JeffZeitlin AFAIK the comment editor always has been using a proportional font. – Glorfindel Feb 14 '18 at 14:19
  • @Glorfindel - yes, but the font that it used always seemed to be the same font that the comments appear in - which is a sans-serif font for ELU, but the comment editor right now is using Georgia, the serif font used for questions and answers, but not comments. – Jeff Zeitlin Feb 14 '18 at 14:21
  • Thanks for making StackOverflow usable again. – Bergi Feb 14 '18 at 22:34
