Forum CSS annoyance

This has happened to me twice already, in Chrome.  On occasion, quoted post text gets a hard to read light cyan coloring, like this:


The color is #84D4EC, from layout.css blockquote p.

If I hit Ctrl-F5 to force a refresh (presumably reloading the CSS as well), the correct dark blue coloring #4444A0 returns.  Inspecting shows it to also be in layout.css blockquote p.


Looks like there's 3 CSS elements that have these colors:

blockquote:before{position:absolute;display:block;top:-43px;left:-11px;color:#84d4ec;font-family:"Ropa Sans";font-size:5rem;font-weight:400;content:'“';}

blockquote a,blockquote a:visited{color:#84d4ec;}

blockquote p{color:#4444a0;line-height:1.7;font-family:"PT Serif",serif;font-size:0.85rem;font-style:italic;font-weight:bold;}

I'm thinking that the browser is randomly choosing the 1st entry for blockquote in some cases and the 3rd entry in other cases... unless it thinks it's a hyperlink and picking the 2nd entry, which should never be the case...

We need better spam proofing technology - preferably the kind that electrocutes spammers with 50,000 volts 100 amps the moment they click "Post".

Re: Forum CSS annoyance

I stopped using Chrome, or Chromium a couple of years ago, due to a excess of problems,... I have not noticed this , using "Seamonkey"  all the quoted text is dark blue, or appears black to me, my eyes are very bad.
