This is true on both main and meta security.

The top bar appears correctly on at least 18 other StackExchange sites I have just tried.

Am running on IE7 - will try later from my normal Chrome and FF

  • you sure? I see em... looks ok to me. But then, maybe it's just my super-alpha-rendering...

  • @Jeff - it did work yesterday after go-live, and I did test by force-reloading then. First fail was 6 hours ago - not worked since.

We rolled out a new top bar last year, so I doubt very much that this bug still obtains.


Have tested with FF4 and 5, IE8 and Chrome.

Confirmed it is an IE7 specific issue with the new CSS here, so probably comes under the not supported-no fix expected heading?
