This has been annoying me for a while. No matter what I do, Wikipedia pages all look like they're highlighted. I can still highlight text (see the 'Execution' section in the picture), which is really strange. I have already tried the more obvious solutions, like quitting, restarting my computer, and Chrome even updated at one point, but the issue remains.

Thanks for taking a look.

Edit: My version of Chrome is 18.0.1025.163

Could you provide more information about your Chrome version. Which Chrome update channel are you on? – bioinfoboy Apr 17 '12 at 5:56
@bioinfoboy I've updated my question to include the version. I think Chrome may have updated when I went to check, since it asked me to restart. When I did, I checked a Wikipedia page, and found that it's exactly as it was when I left it (all highlighted). – Hassan Apr 17 '12 at 21:24

Try zooming in. For some reason, I have the same issue when viewing a Wikipedia article with on OSX - but only if my zoom level is <100%. I think it's related to (or IS) this issue.

Hey that did it! Although, I think you meant zoom in. – Hassan Apr 18 '12 at 20:03
Oops, you're right. I did. I'll edit the answer. Glad it worked! – Joseph Redfern Apr 18 '12 at 20:07
