Minor layout bug, seen in FireFox (currently latest version 54.0.1) under Windows (independent of browser width)

When the # answers icon is bold because there is a correct answer, the views counter and question title get indented a few pixels:

In addition, here is a specific case where answer vs. answers also shows alignment issues:

  • Might be Firefox-only - I don't see it in Chrome, on Linux or Windows. – Cascabel Jul 8 '17 at 15:05
  • It's a result of the fonts selected and the way they are rendered. Using Firefox on Linux, by overriding the font selection I can make it better, or worse. With default setting, and without knowing which fonts are actually used by each, I get the following results; Chrome- 4 pixel shift, Firefox- 5 pixel shift, and Konquerer- No shift (although the bold "answers" is still slightly longer, 3 pixels, than the regular weight version). If I force Firefox to use Courier 10 for all fonts, then the "answer" and "answers" without bold are not aligned, and the bold "answers" is even farther misaligned. – user58817 Jul 10 '17 at 4:27
  • @GypsySpellweaver and for others reading along: I have Win7 with default fonts; no extra fonts were ever installed. – Jan Doggen Jul 10 '17 at 7:14
  • It looks like they designed the center column "answers" slightly to tight. Each browser, on each system will find its preferred fonts to use to satisfy the CSS font selections. My experiments only confirm your problem, and help isolate the cause, if and when the developers choose to fix it. Because it's such a small deviation, I suspect it'll be an ultra-low priority to correct it. Still, a good catch and a valid report. – user58817 Jul 10 '17 at 7:20
