While I'm doing the inline tag edit by clicking on the "Edit tags" (privilege earned when reaching 10,000 reputation) on a post, there is a loader image which is briefly visible. However, the loader image is very big and not looking good.

I was able to reproduce this issue on the following browsers:

Configuration Version
Operating System Windows 10 Pro
Mozilla Firefox 87.0 (64-bit)
Google Chrome 89.0.4389.90 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Zoom 100%

GIF for the same:

    I was able to duplicate this in FF84.0.0. For ease of duplication, you can do StackExchange.helpers.addSpinner('.post-taglist') in the JavaScript console, which will display the same element, but won't immediately remove it. There should probably be a max-height applied to the ajax-loader class.

  • This isn't specific to Firefox, I've repro'd in Google, so maybe remove the [firefox] tag.

    Can briefly see it. It's easier to reproduce if you're on a slower Internet connection (use Chrome Developer Tools to simulate). Feb 10, 2021 at 8:42

    @Makyen max height might help, but the original gif is only 4 pixels height. It stretch due to the grid design SE decided to use, which cause elements to take 100% width and height. Proper fix would be to fix the grid. Feb 10, 2021 at 9:12
  • Yeah now I see it too.

  • I can also reproduce this on Chrome on android, albeit being in a blink of an eye.
