Support » Requests and Feedback » 2014 Dashboard Menu Text Flicker

  • Just updated the WordPress to the latest version and I noticed that text on the left menu appears to flicker (brightness of text fluctuates) when the mouse is hovering over other links in the menu, I’m a web developer so I know the hover effect but hovering over a link shouldn’t have any effect on the inactive links but in WordPress it creates this flickering effect which is a bit annoying.

  • I realized that this text flicering is a Firefox issue, I opened the dashboard in Chrome and the menu works properly. I was able to replicate this flickering effect when I bring the Developer Tool (F12) in Firefox.

    I haven’t been able to replicate this in Firefox 26.

    I’m using Firefox 26 too on Windows 7, I’m still facing that issue. As I mentioned earlier there is no issue in Chrome and Opera but in Firefox the issue still exists. Thanks for your help Esmi, I’ll probably submit a bug report to Firefox.

    Have you tried deactivating all browser extensions in case one of them is causing the issue?

    Hello Esmi, I figured out the issue, I’ve created a custom theme for WordPress and the text flicker happens in Firefox only when my theme is active, when I activate the 2014 theme there is no flicker in Firefox. But the thing is when I check the dashboard in Chrome,Opera with my theme activated there is no flicker, it’s only in Firefox. I know there is that thing about registering JavaScript and Stylesheets which is the recommended method, but I just added the link in the head section so I think may be my stylesheet is interfering with the WordPress Dashboard styles.

    You should be enqueuing your stylesheets and scripts.
