Files App: Some kind of visual bug (Blurred in browser)

I discovered some kind of visual bug \ issue when u do smth with files or press sub-menu button

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. click on file button
  2. zoom in\out the page (for ex. %110 or %80 may be less or more, nvm)
  3. see visual bug

this is how it looks on 100 % size of page

this is how it looks on 110 %

it looks like it blured a bit
so i use apache2
and the latest version of cloud (28.0.1)
Of course, there are no loggs about it)
And also, i guess, there is no bugg on firefox, but on chrome and edge.
Tank you in advice!

Hi and thank you for the reply! Maybe there is a way to switch off this feature?)

Using custom CSS or something like that…

btw my eyes hurt)

body {
    --color-box-shadow: none !important;

Much luck,

Thank you so much! so appreciate it!
And can you please show me the best way to apply it?)

You must install the app “Custom CSS - theming_customcss

Then you will find a little window inside of your Theming Tab in Admin settings, located at settings/admin/theming

There you must enter that piece of CSS and activate it.

Much luck,

Maybe i am doing smth wrong but nothing has changed

This is what i did

Please look yourself on the images you provided. The box-shadow, which you pointed your arrow on in the first immage is gone now. Wasn’t it that what you meant?
In your new immage, you point to something totaly different. I do not see anything blurred. Maybe my eyes, they are not that good.
I am using dark theme anyhow.

Much luck,

Ok! Probably we talked about completely different things… My bad. I just wondering dont you see that the text in the box is a bit smooth, blured or not clear comparing to word “yesterday” which is not in the box?)

BTW thanks for idea to check it in dark mode and all your patience


i guess it’s the same

OK, now I understand what you meant.
Sorry, but that is within the range, that I do not even see it, but yes, I will try to dig in it and if I find kind of workarund for it, I will come back here and post it, if not yet solved by somebody else or by an update.

Much luck,


Nice) Thanks in advance )

I’m afraid that this is most probably a browser bug. When you scale the site’s content, all of the content should be sharp and there isn’t really anything a website (or webapp in this case) can do to make it more sharp.

There have been a few bugs in Chromium in the past where it blurred text when a CSS transform was used. Maybe this is also the issue here?

I couldn’t immediately find anything in the bugtracker: Monorail - chromium - An open-source project to help move the web forward. - Monorail

To sum up, I have a strong suspicion that blurry text rendering in browsers when zoomed in can only be fixed by browser vendors :slight_smile:
