blurry dropdowns

Why all the dropdowns on JIRA looks so blurred. All the text around is nice and sharp but the moment I click on a dropdown menu its blurred out. Can I do something to fix this?

This is definitely a UI bug, reproducible in Chrome.  Text shouldn't blur if you zoom in or out.  I reckon it's probably bad CSS.  I'll report it as a bug.

Hi Andre. Did you report this issue? If so, can you please provide the issue id. I would like to vote on this. Thank you. V~

seems to happen when the screen zoom is < 100%

 

Set it to 100% and try that.

Upvote! + This is the issue. Stilla bug though, shouldn't be like this!

Hello - This is happening for me too, but I am correctly at 100%. It only occurs in Chrome though. IE and FF are fine.

This happens to me when I'm at 100% zoom as well in Chrome. Also tried restarting Chrome and clearing cache.

Are you on a Windows machine where the system zoom is set to a value different than 100 % such as a notebook with a small display and high resolution?

I have the zoom in Windows set to 110 % and to 100 % in Chrome and my dropdowns are blurry too.

I noticed this in Confluence too! At first I thought it was my tired eyes. we're running the latest Confluence (self hosted). It's not on our other instance of 5.8.8

I've noticed this issue too and was equally concerned about my eyesight.  I'm a front-end developer, and can't, for the life of me, figure out why these menus need to appear blurred.

This seems to be an issue with transform: translateZ(0), but I have no clue why they're using it.

I am so disappointed that Atlassian won't fix this simple issue. To me it looks like a css issue.

Is there a fix for this?  I have some users reporting this and it is creating fatigue when looking at the menus.  I can't seem to find any other info about a fix.  THANKS!

I just started noticing this, and it's incredibly annoying.

@Hugh McGuinness that solved it for me. It would be nice to have both clear and enlarged text - but this is fine for now.

I typically set my browser at 80% zoom for JIRA because I like seeing more on the screen.  Yes, those drop downs are blurry.  Very annoying.  And yes, they are clearer at 100% zoom.  I still would like Atlassian to address it.  It should be a simple fix since the other fonts don't have the issue on zoom.

Hi there,

This bugged me also, I haven't seen this fix anywhere else so it might help some of you:

Go to:

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display

and set text size to 100%.

I have the same issue! Just piling on with everyone else.  Fix this simple bug!! Thanks!

Having the same issue in Chrome even when zoom level is set to 100%.

Still noticing this old issue. It has to do with CSS tranforms and landing on half pixels. You can fix it by moving the transforms around slightly and then readjusting with left/top or just abandoning transform altogether and using left/top instead. There are some tradeoffs.
