Interestingly the bug doesn't seem to occur on the Hebrew Wikipedia.

kaldari set Security to None.

Confirmed in Firefox and Chrome.

This doesn't happen at ar.wikibooks, so I guess that ar.wikipedia broke this in their Common.css.

Caused by usage of:

.mw-content-ltr {
    text-align:right;
}

in their Common.css
Closing as invalid, since it is a wiki issue, that should be addressed by their community.

This also causes trouble on https://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/ميدياويكي:Common.css btw, which is left to right content and is being shown right aligned for no particular reason....
