I was idly browsing through TeX.SE, and at one point attempted to favourite ("star") a question that had already been starred more than a hundred times. Nothing happened. I tapped (yeah, touchscreen) higher on the icon, at which point the expected result occurred.

Further investigation revealed that the star count being sandwiched up into the icon (as reported here) causes it to overlap the star's clickable box in the page DOM; and as the count is the later DOM element, it prevents the lower part of the star being clickable.


The blue boxes are the overlapped areas. Pretty bad, isn't it?

The culprit is a single CSS property

.favoritecount { margin-top: -4px; }

with the effect of smashing the number into the star. Make that less negative and the problem goes away.

    Impossible.... You can't idly browse TeX-SX. I propose closing :P – percusse Feb 21 '14 at 15:41

    @TorbjørnT. I'm going through the bug list now. I'll fix that today. – Jin Feb 22 '14 at 19:28
  • 49 hours and no production build yet - could someone be poked with a sharp stick? – michaelb958--Reinstate Monica Feb 23 '14 at 22:16
  • @michaelb958 I forgot I made the fix on Friday. we don't make production builds as frequently on the weekends. There definitely will be a build tomorrow. – Jin Feb 24 '14 at 1:55
  • @Jin A build has been performed; accepting this answer. – michaelb958--Reinstate Monica Feb 24 '14 at 3:06
