Description

When a user search for certain text using CTRL + F from the users device, some of the texts on WP.org website gets slightly blurred. This happens only to the texts that are written on the blue button on the wp.org website. The issue might become more problematic as the screen size of the user becomes smaller or if font becomes smaller.

WordPress is one of the text that mostly appears on that blue button which might affect the brand image.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Unfortunately Browsers don't appear to offer any way to style these search highlights. ::selection is available for text-selections, but not search highlights.

The only fix here would be to remove the text-shadow on the buttons, which isn't ideal.. although it's not the worst.

The good news is that the upcoming (2022) new WordPress.org style uses a different style of button that isn't affected by this.

Unfortunately I'm going to close this as wontfix for now, unless someone comes along with a quick fix.
