Desktop site minor bug - Gear icon showing up on all threads

As far as I can tell, this is new. It's nothing huge, and no where near as annoying as other things like the Lego thread not auto-scrolling due to the broken references, but it is still worth mentioning.

Typically, a normal user will only see the "Gear" icon on their own threads, or on stickied threads that can be dismissed.



However, now when you mouse over any thread, you see the gear. If you hover over it, it will pop up with alt text for "Options" - but I couldn't capture that.


Clicking it looks like it tries to pop up and render the options menu, but it just results in some graphical artifacts - a top pointing chevron and a line/pipe.


Further, these artifacts stick around when you mouse over other topics, even with the gears showing.


This in no way breaks functionality or causes any lasting issues, but it's likely another sign of something under the hood breaking.

Currently running Microsoft Edge, Version 125.0.2535.67 (Official build) (64-bit), with uBlock Origin.

Edit: I also checked something else - the gear does not let you "re-sticky" announcements you have dismissed.
