I was reading this question when I saw a bug with this comment:

Enter image description here

It is quite evident that the user who commented this included some code in his comment, but the comment just, well, overflowed.

Enter image description here

I am using Chrome 88 with Windows 10 (laptop).

The Chrome 88 version for Windows is supported. See: What browser version is supported?

  • It doesn't overflow for me. Which browser are you using? Is it supported?

    @ErikA It overflows in Chrome, but not in Firefox. Commented Feb 22, 2021 at 11:23
  • @SebastianSimon funny that the dupe is for firefox. Can we now conclude Chrome and Firefox are finally behaving the same, even for the rendering bugs? ;) I can confrm the problem exists in Chrome / Win10.

  • @justhalf not really "related". It's exactly the same bug. Nothing wrong, just saying. :-) Commented Apr 10, 2022 at 13:59
  • Yep, I'm just putting it there for additional duplicates that is targetting this. Hehe

  • @justhalf they're already listed, see in the right sidebar under "Linked". :-) Commented Apr 11, 2022 at 6:44
  • Is it listed there before I put the link here or after? I know that if I put a link to another question it will show up there. But not sure what other conditions it may appear (in this case the relevant one would be when the other question links here)

  • @justhalf yes the Linked Questions will always have the questions closed as duplicate of the current one. See here for example, this question that appears under "Linked Questions" isn't mentioned in any comment or answer, just closed as duplicate. Commented Apr 12, 2022 at 6:44
