I am looking at the timeline for the Chuck Norris question. Here's what I see:

alt text

It appears that the design can't accommodate questions with such long titles. When the title wraps to the next line, it pushes the actual content to the right and out of view (looks like a float issue).

Now, this is not a show-stopper, as there is a horizontal scrollbar at the very bottom of the page, so I can bring the actual content into view. However, I think it would be less confusing and more convenient if the question title were allotted more vertical space or had an overflow:hidden.

  • Chuck Norris can lead a horse to water and make it float, and make the overflow hidden.

FireFox only CSS bug. A fun one too.

I've tweaked the styles to just hide the overflow, which fixes the problem on FireFox (and does nothing in the typical "sane length title" case).

This change will go out with our nightly deploy.

  • Well now, part of the title disappears.

  • Thanks, Kevin. @Eldros: I can totally live with that. I hope so can others. (This is an edge case anyway, most question titles are considerably shorter.)
