Problem with text Sight theme (no changes to CSS)
I installed the Sight theme without changing anything in the CSS (in fact, everything is its original theme). There are occasional problems where the text condenses down to tiny little lines. It can usually be fixed with refreshing the page, but I haven’t seen a problem with it in other sites that use the same layout. Does anyone know a way I might be able to fix this? Why does it do this?
For reference, my blog is http://beyoungandshutup.com
The blog I need help with is sorryari.wordpress.com.
Sorry, the forum automatically linked me to my old blog. The blog I need help with is still Be Young & Shut Up.
What is the URL for Be Young & Shut Up?
Oops! I see the URL now – sorry. :(

It has nothing to do with my personal browser. I have received complaints from other people viewing the site. It only happens occasions which is why you probably couldn’t see it. I can usually see it on one of two pages if I open 5 or 6 links in new tabs, then one of them is bound to show up with the distorted text.

Thank you for providing those screenshots and explaining the issue. This may be a tough issue to sort out, given that it only pops up occasionally — I hope you’ll bear with me while I troubleshoot it with you. :)
Can you start by letting me know a few details about your computer setup? That may help me reproduce the problem so I can pinpoint what’s going on:
- What operating system and web browser (including the version numbers) are you using?
- Do you have any extensions or add-ons in your browser? If so, does the problem ever occur if your extensions/add-ons are disabled?
If other visitors to your site are seeing the same issue, it may be linked to a specific browser or add-on that you and your visitors have in common. Hopefully I can use that information to figure out what’s going on here. Thanks!
The problem seems to be fairly easy for me to replicate. I usually open 5-6 links in different tabs with my mousewheel at once and then several pages will usually pop up with the issue.
