Problem with article comments & the blue theme

Postposted on Fri Mar 08, 2013 9:07 pm

The links back to previous comments are too dark to read easily with the blue theme:

Edit: Even with retarded (seriously... switch back to normal view!) "Flat, reverse-chronological" view these links look "white" to me... Maybe you should switch browser to non-retarded one (I use Firefox, but the Chrome and Safari also work fine) :P

You no longer have a leg to stand on in complaining about personal attacks. Further such attacks will result in enforced temporary vacations.

:lol:
Please kindly show me where "such attack" has occurred in this thread? Or you simply got a PM from an internet browser (was it "Internet Explorer"??? Tell us!) telling you that I called it (the inanimate piece of software) retarded? :wink: You guys and your "ovary-reactions" are just lulz...

It's certainly something with this copy of Chrome, but what I know not. Launching it in incognito mode fixes it, and it doesn't happen on the Chromebook[1] or with Firefox. Can't think of any extensions that should be causing this, and in any case they're synced across all my Chrome instances. Force-reload doesn't fix it either.

It's a mystery. :-?

[1] The Cr-48 and this copy of Chrome are both v26 beta.

Try clearing the browser cache.

I'm using Chrome and it looks fine here, even when switching to your view preference.

FWIW I think the problem originated when we originally fixed that bug and didn't change the name of the CSS file in question. So it's probably our fault. :)
