Confluence tables are randomly disappearing (CSS formatting error)

Hi, I've been troubleshooting this error involving tables randomly disappearing in confluence. Once it happens the table that was once there becomes a sliver.

Notice the thin grey line and a massive blank space where the table used to be?

A colleague has helped track the error down to a CSS related issue where the table width is automatically set to 0 pixels.

Unchecking that option instantly resolves the issue however that is only at a local level and the problem persists. 

What is strange is that the table is not visible in normal view and edit mode however when doing a page comparison it is able to display.

The only current workaround I have to this would be to remove the faulty table and copy in a new one from the comparison viewer which is essentially the same thing.  

Would anyone happen to know what would be causing such an error to happen in the first place?

You need to open up batch.css and find out which plug-in is adding that particular bit of CSS. 

Alternatively override the CSS by adding the following (or similar) to your global style sheet. 


html .confluenceTable.fixed-table {
