screen tear on forum with firefox and 4K monitor
« on: December 09, 2019, 06:35:28 pm »
I get what looks like a tear in the top of the background of the forum frame when it is displayed on my 4K monitor using Firefox 71.0 64bit on win 10.  It goes away if I lower the resolution.

This was mentioned back in July, it's a small but correctable problem with the theme and will affect all users running a high resolution or zoomed out in their browser, so not a problem with your end.

Unless you have a 50 inch monitor you'll want to use a HiDPI setting of your OS (e.g. 200% on ≤28 inch).

Still you probably want to use 200% because paragraphs stretched that long and thin are tiring to read. It's part of why they invented columns in newspapers.
