PA Report Comment Display Issue

Hi guys,
Small thing for you to add to your TO DO list:

I get an issue displaying comments on the PA Report pages, only in Google Chrome, which causes the text to overlap.
This only happens on default zoom (100%) and I can resolve it by increasing my zoom level. It appears to fix itself occasionally but it's an issue I have seen several times now.

Currently, I can reproduce it every time I navigate to this article however it's appears a site wide issue on PA Report for me.

I'm using the current version of Chrome which is 26.0.1410.43 m and my resolution is set to 1280 x 960, I'm running Windows 7 SP1.

Here is a link to the screenshot I took.
The snippet was taken with my desktop extended over two screens, which is why there is a little sliver on the side of the screenshot. However I disabled dual monitors as a little test and the issue was still present.

    Ah, interesting. I thought this was only me so I didn't worry about it, but I totally have this problem too. Glad to hear I'm not insane and that it's an actual thing that's going to be fixed ;)

    This has been driving me nuts. Please fix.

    Since it's been a while, I'm also having this issue.

    Got it to render correctly once by refreshing and generally fiddling with the window. Looks fine every time in IE.

    Yeah. We know. Bumping this thread isn't going to get it fixed any faster.

    makes reading PA report comments almost impossible when it happens, which is sporadic. Happy to hear it's on the list. For a while I thought embedded video was doing it but now I'm thinking phases of the moon.

    Does anyone know if it's a bigger issue in Chrome period? I now have one other website displaying one of the symptoms - the words don't overlap, but they disappear off the right side of the text area. Is anyone else having problems with this site?: http://www.akkrescue.com/ (Don't judge me - I NEED a puppy right now!)

    This is literally the only other site I've had any problems with, but it's driving me loco. The comments thing is too - for me, reading the article is 2/3 of the awesome- seeing people's responses completes the experience.

    I've only noticed it at PA Report until now. I tried your link and it seems similar. Works fine in Opera.

    Same Issue here - I've only seen it on this website. Anybody figured anything out?

  • Peter PanzerPeter Panzer Registered User new member
    The comments section under Chrome is still f***ed up. It's been unresolved for months now. This is ridiculous and gives a sloppy impression.

  • TubeTube Registered User admin
    Thanks for letting us know dude.

  • Peter PanzerPeter Panzer Registered User new member
    Right. No need to thank me, mr. hedhehog. It's just like I'm simply another Orr from Catch-22 here.

  • IcyLiquidIcyLiquid Two Steaks Montreal, QuebecAdministrator, Vanilla Staff vanilla
    So. We've taken another stab at this. Anyone still seeing the fuckery?

    Working fine on mine.

    I wonder if it's an issue with Windows 8?

    Working for me, chrome on win server 2008r2 (yeah, that's what I'm on at this very second)

  • Ash-HousewaresAsh-Housewares TARDIS Hunter Registered User regular
    @IcyLiquid Yup, cleared up and still messed up.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    Can confirm it's happening on my windows 8 dev VM.

    SlMo1YP.png
    font-family: "Proxima Nova";
    

    Is the offending line, disabling it in the CSS corrected the problem completely. That font works fine in windows 7. On windows 8, I even tried disabling some truetype font settings, as well.

    For example.

    @icyliquid let me know if you need me to test further, I've got a windows 8 VM that I can try some things with.

    @bowen You just saved me hours of debugging, thanks a ton man! We'll remove the Proxima Nova font and get this fixed once and for all.

    @kasperisager @icyliquid You guys must have done some voodoo because it's fixed on my end. Here's hoping that this problem is solved.

    Good work everyone and nice catch @bowen
