When I open the top page in Firefox 3.6.12 or Firefox 4.0 Beta 7 on Windows 7, a question with both an interesting tag and an ignored tag is shown in a strange way; it seems that something is wrong with ClearType.

This does not reproduce with IE 8 or Chrome 7.0 on the same system. Therefore, I suspect that this may be an issue with Firefox rather than an issue with the website. Despite this, I am posting this issue because (1) I am not completely sure about the cause and (2) even if it is an issue with Firefox, some workaround on the server side might be possible.

    $\begingroup$ definitely looks like a glitch, I'm looking into this. (btw, what's the reason to tag a topic as both interesting and ignored?) $\endgroup$ – Jin Dec 2 '10 at 5:56

    $\begingroup$ @Jin: Thank you. I have set the tag [co.combinatorics] as an interesting tag and the tag [big-list] as an ignored tag, and this question happens to have both of them. $\endgroup$ – Tsuyoshi Ito Dec 2 '10 at 11:49

The fix will be in the next deployment.
