Not sure when this started happening, but the new contributor hover information now makes a scrollbar appear, and keeps all of the hover card information constrained to a small area surrounding the post.

Here's a gif representation, from this question:

Hover card for new contributor now shows a scrollbar

This appears to happen on every site I visit, so I assume it's network-wide.

I'm using Chrome version 88.0.4324.182 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows 10, if that matters.

Could this be looked into and fixed?

    @Spevacus I suspect this doesn't have anything to do with the particular browser you're using. I'm noticing the same issue with Microsoft Edge version 84.0.522.61 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows 10. Feb 25, 2021 at 23:42

    Yeah I figured I would include browser information in the unlikely event it was browser-specific, but as you pointed out that seems irrelevant. Thanks for testing!
