11

Just as I was browsing the site, I saw the vote and favorite buttons lose both all their color and all their brightness:

Vote and favorite buttons lost their luminance and chrominance

I also see that the "Similar Questions" page has lost all its color:

Monochromatic similar questions

Additionally, the "[x] question(s) with new activity" bar has lost its background color:

"1 question with new activity" missing its background gray color

This seems to have happened on all sites. I can reproduce this in Microsoft Edge and in Internet Explorer 11, but not in Google Chrome Canary. Regardless, can this please be fixed?

Update: It seems to have been fixed on Meta Stack Exchange, but it still exists on other sites in Edge, IE11, and (per Pierre.Vriens's answer) iOS Safari.

    This is happening on all sites for me, just in the last few minutes. – Kate Gregory Aug 28 '19 at 16:03

    In addition to the vote buttons, all the flag buttons are lit. – Kate Gregory Aug 28 '19 at 16:04

    @JeffZeitlin Turns out it can't be reproduced in Chrome, only in Edge and IE11. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Aug 28 '19 at 16:06

    Not happening in responsive mobile Safari. – Stormblessed Aug 28 '19 at 16:20

    @Stormblessed As I said in my prior comment and the question's tags, this seems to be an Edge/IE-specific issue. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Aug 28 '19 at 16:24

    Wait a minute - it didn't reproduce, then I went to a different question, and it did reproduce. (IE11). – Jeff Zeitlin Aug 28 '19 at 17:36

    @AaronShekey Mind answering with details as to what caused it? – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Aug 28 '19 at 23:08

The same horrible issue applies in iOS 9.3.5 on an iPad, where I was able to reproduce this in three different browsers, including Safari and Chrome. It reaaaaaaaaaaally looks terrible.

If this ever get fixed (rollback?), I suggest to keep this variation to re-enable it in case something terrible happens at SE (fingers crossed, John is still alive).

While waiting for a fix, a partial workaround, to change it to another color (blue), is to upvote/downvote/flag the posts/comments ... (not for favorites though, that remains black).

  • They seem to be working on it. It seems to be fixed on Meta Stack Exchange (in Edge and IE11), but it still looks wrong on other sites. Are you still seeing black here on Meta? – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Aug 28 '19 at 19:09
