The same issue as Why was a vertical line added on the left for users who collapse the left navigation? Can it please be removed? has arisen again.

The bug was initially fixed, but it seems to have regressed. I'm posting again because SE generally prefers we file new bug reports if a fixed bug comes up again, rather than removing the tag on the older one.

Again, I really don't like it there. It's eye-catching and extremely distracting for me.

Some of the themes implementation details are still firming up, and this is a regression I introduced... again :)

Thanks for pointing it out!

    The change hasn't been made yet, so when I'm able to get it. I'm done for the day today. Commented Aug 29, 2018 at 21:46
  • Okay, then have a great day! Commented Aug 29, 2018 at 21:47

  • I think this problem is also related. See: [Why do I have empty space on the left suddenly? ](meta.stackexchange.com/questions/314887/…) Commented Aug 30, 2018 at 19:06

    For those who use Stylus or similar: Create a style using this: #content { border-left-width: 0; }

  • @mrt It's not until now that I know that Stylish is banned universally... I decide to modify it on my own since they don't make a change at all.

  • @Clonkex The line is intentional to contrast the background with the foreground content. There's also a line on the right. Both are intentional. Commented Sep 14, 2018 at 15:27

Yes, there's still a line on my screen but the margin is noticeably reduced compared to @Rick's. Note where the home button is positioned on my topbar, they're much nearer to the left. I believe the two problems are related but Sonic's request is a separate issue. Unfortunately, I cannot post an "answer" there because it is closed as a duplicate.
