SVG scaling bug

Post by Tomaso » 2019-08-21, 09:29

I just noticed this, when reporting an ad issue for a Norwegian filter list..

1) Go to https://sol.no/

2) Scroll down, until you locate some ad boxes.

In those ad boxes, there's supposed to be a small SVG cog wheel, which gives you access to some ad choices.
In Pale Moon, those cog wheels are monsterous!

I tried a few UA overrides, but the problem seems to lay elsewhere.

(Pale Moon v28.6.1[x64] and v28.7.0a1[x64],2019-08-14 / Win8.1)

EDIT:

The issue also manifests itself at https://www.kk.no/, where it actually prevents you from browsing the page!

As a workaround, I've added this rule to my filter list:

Code: Select all

kk.no##button[aria-expanded="false"]

So another case of a webmaster implementing something that's not generally-accepted (even Firefox ESR won't have that for a year). Seems your neck of the woods has a lot of that.

Actually, when I come to think of it, I've seen this issue on several non-Norwegian sites too.
But I've simply dismissed it as being caused by bad UA sniffing.

If I remember correctly, the most common issue has been a huge X in the footer at some pages, covering the entire width of the screen!
Possibly a SVG image used on a close button, for a newsletter box, or something similar.
