Check out this guys profile https://stackoverflow.com/users/391047/dave one of his answers is moved to the right. This popped up for me on the main stackoverflow page and the formatting became all screwed up. I can take a picture of it if you like.

Dont mind my custom css lol alt text http://www.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/f2d8ef1437.jpg

EDIT: Tested Jeffs link in chrome and still got the same error. Below is a screenshot in IE7 alt text http://www.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/52337a9492.jpg

I can just drop it, it doesn't matter to me. I'm just curious as to why this error is occuring. I had my collegue beside me check out the page and he got the same error, so its not just me.

  • Are you saying his profile page is broken, or some question that he answered is broken?

  • @mmyers, Both actually. His profile page shows the answers on the right side and I can't even see what his answer was. The screenshots above show what I am seeing. Dont mind the CSS

  • I'm not seeing this behavior (nor can I see any of the screenshots besides the first), but I'm starting to consider that maybe stackoverflow.com/questions/3144029/… is the culprit, due to its title.

  • I turned the custom CSS off and it still renders that way. So it is not the CSS

  • Now that your latter ones have loaded, judging that those are listed in the same order as vote sort, but located after the question I linked, I'm pretty sure that it is the culprit. As to what it is doing and how, though... not so sure.

  • Maybe there has to be a limit to how long the question title can be?

  • It's not a matter of question title length (which there already is a limit, anyway), I think it is the actual HTML tag. In your first screenshot, that's where it is breaking.

  • @mmyers I'm using chrome. Are you able to click the link when it shows up? I tried it in IE and it shows the name but doesn't link anywhere

  • The link in the profile page works fine, if that's what you're asking. I'm using IE7.

  • Do you run Chrome with any Extensions? Disable them. Commented Jul 27, 2010 at 8:29
  • @Ladybug Killer ,Went to the page in incognito mode(no extensions), same thing.

The problem in your case is probably the proxy of your company. Maybe they are caching old JavaScript libraries or they are filtering stuff, whatever.

See here for other examples of this problem.
