@dr0ptp4kt this was almost UBN. Would be good if you could prioritize this very highly.

Yikes. Let's fix this the right way, and let's do so in the current sprint. I'm updating the tags and will move it in the sprint and backlog boards.

I can replicate on Version 9.1.1 (11601.6.17) of Safari on OSX

Not proud of fix, can't work out why it's a problem, but it does the job. If anyone wants to investigate more feel free..
