Blurry icons in the Transclusion dialog
Closed, InvalidPublic1 Estimate Story Points


All the icons (especially [[ ]], ( i ), and the bin) are slightly bigger than normally and look like blurred a little. I have Firefox 45, size 100%, Ubuntu 15.10.

I have a hunch it has something to do with the transform: scale(1) CSS property on the dialog frame (which we use for the fancy fade-in effect when opening the dialog). I couldn't reproduce what you're seeing, but I poked at a few things and noticed that transform: scale(1) (as opposed to transform: none) changes the rendering in my Firefox slightly (and they should both look exactly the same), shifting some elements around by 1 pixel.

Firefox 46.0b2 on Windows 7: (open these in new browser tabs and switch between them to compare)

transform: scale(1);transform: none;

@tarlocesilion: Since I can't reproduce, let's try debugging remotely a bit. :) Can you try following the steps in this video:

and see if the icons render correctly afterwards?

They do, but... not all of them :/ let's take ( i ) as an example. Most of the dots over ( i )s are clearly 1x1px, but some of them are bigger/blurred/faded. I think the change you suggested doesn't affect those icons that are next to 'required' parameters.

(Was) Probably related to T130691@tarlocesilion did you later run into this problem again? Patch T94494 that might have positively affected, got merged on 19 April 2016 and was several days later.

No activity on this task for 10 months, excluding my last comment. Can't reproduce this, therefore closing as invalid. If new insights are given, let's reopen it.
