# Number of pending edits hardly readable

This is how it shows

and at least on my monitor I can hardly tell the number from the orange background. Can a more contrasting color be used?

By the way, is this readable for others?

edit
Screenshot is from Firefox, but I installed Chrome (slow!!) and on both Chrome and Internet Exploder (the rectangle) it's equally badly readable.

• I can read it OK on my monitor. I certainly can't object to more contrast though. Interestingly, mine shows up as a rectangle, not a circle as your screen shot shows. – Olin Lathrop Jul 11 '12 at 16:00
• @Olin - that's odd. Maybe different CSS for different browsers? Mine is Firefox 13.0.1 – stevenvh Jul 11 '12 at 16:03
• On Stack Overflow, I get a rounded rectangle. – Chris Laplante Jul 11 '12 at 16:16
• @endolith: Which browser are you using? – Chris Laplante Jul 11 '12 at 16:22
• Firefox 13.0.1 --- – endolith Jul 11 '12 at 16:36
• It's a Firefox issue (or a problem with the CSS that affects Firefox) then. It renders fine on Chrome. @Olin is probably using a browser that doesn't support CSS rounded corners, which is why the box renders as a rectangle. – Chris Laplante Jul 11 '12 at 16:44
• @SimpleCoder - I bet he uses Netscape Navigator 3.0. You know that he's an old man ;-). Me too, next week :-( – stevenvh Jul 11 '12 at 16:49
• @SimpleCoder - I can't tell about SO, for lack of reputation there. – stevenvh Jul 11 '12 at 17:28
• @stevenvh: Hmm. Can you try this site in Chrome to see if that is indeed the problem? I can't see the review bubble on this site for lack of reputation, but since all SO sites use the same platform, I assume it works in Chrome (did for SO). – Chris Laplante Jul 11 '12 at 17:42
• @SimpleCoder - I added to my question that it looks the same in Chrome, also in IE, BTW. – stevenvh Jul 11 '12 at 17:46
• Ok, it's a CSS issue then. I took a look at the source and the code required to make the text white is there. So I'm not sure what's wrong. – Chris Laplante Jul 11 '12 at 17:50
• Should this be labeled as a bug instead of a feature request? I agree that this is an annoyingly difficult combination of colors. – W5VO Jul 12 '12 at 13:15
• clearly says 7. I don't agree with your 'problem'. – jippie Jul 21 '12 at 17:37
• CRT's often have a better picture when it comes to badly contrasting colors. Maybe it was designed on a CRT? – jippie Jul 21 '12 at 17:39
