The "Copy Profile to all Stack Exchange network accounts" button on the profile "Edit" page appears as in the following screenshot, with Safari 5.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.7.2:


The background is only set in part of the button.

On Google Chrome 15.0.874.121, and Firefox 9 (for Mac OS X), the result is the same.

When I use the Safari's Web Inspector, this is what it reports for that button.


What I find curious is that both the "background-position-x" and "background-position-y" properties for the button are set to 50%.

The issue is only present in Seasoned Advice; in other SE sites the button is rendered correctly.



In the latter screenshot, where the style is closer enough to the one used on Seasoned Advice, Web Inspector shows the following styles being applied to the button. (The screenshot is also a link to the full image.)


In this case, both the "background-position-x" and "background-position-y" properties for the button are set to "initial." Another difference I note is that in Seasoned Advice the background is both a transparent color, and an image, while in Programmers the background for the button is just an image (the color inherited from another element is overridden).

  • Repro'd in Chrome 16 and IE 9. – Matthew Read Dec 20 '11 at 6:03
  • Surprised this is still happening; I guess the "next build" is 6-8 weeks away. – Aaronut Dec 20 '11 at 15:11
  • @Aaronut The last build has been done today, and other builds have been done in the past weeks. I don't think it is a matter of builds, but rather understanding what causes the issue, or having time to resolve it. As the issue is only present on a specific site, it doesn't take the precedence over other issues. – kiamlaluno Dec 20 '11 at 16:22
  • I'm referring to Jin's comment in the duplicate bug report saying that it was going to be fixed in the next build. Either he was mistaken or builds happen very slowly here. – Aaronut Dec 20 '11 at 19:16
  • @Aaronut I guess he was mistaken. As long as I can see, when I wrote my previous comment, the revision reported here on meta ended with .79; now it ends with .82. I only hope I gave the necessary information to help fixing the rendering issue. – kiamlaluno Dec 20 '11 at 19:25
  • @Aaronut As alternative, the next build replaced Jeff's 6-8 weeks timeframe. ;-) – kiamlaluno Dec 23 '11 at 15:34

This will be fixed in the next production build.
