Firefox 100

Have you noticed this? It's been annoying me for quite some time, so I finally googled for a possible solution to the problem, and found this thread

What's up with some YouTube videos not showing the date it was uploaded?

It turns out that the user must zoom out the page until the date emerges, right where it is supposed to be. Apparently, not necessarily the same for everybody. In my case, from 100% to 80%.

But I still don't think there is a consensus whether the cause it is the website, the browser, or both. Nor is there a suggested fix except for this workaround.

Do you have any examples? The one in the reddit post has a date on it. see screenshot DId you test other browsers to verify the issue?

The crux of the issue is that, if the page is zoom to the default 100%, and you want to reveal the date, you must zoom out on the page until it appears.

If I go to that page you posted, I won't see the date until I zoom the page out from 100% to 80%. Try it. If you can't see the date where it normally should be located (under the left side of the media player), zoom out the page until it appears.

That reddit post has 2 links, verifying the contrast between situations where the date is revealed and when it is hidden. Did you check out both?

DId you test other browsers to verify the issue?

Same behavior in Chrome.

Did you try zooming in to see what would happen?

Here's another example of related YouTube display irregularities I just found under the hamburger button at top left

Your going to have to show a link to the problem YouTube videos for others to verify what your seeing to what your describing.

One reason it might not be the same is that users of laptop panels often have a built-in system-level scaling of 125%. To see what your default zoom is, you can open my test page here at what Firefox considers to be 100% zoom:

https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/resolution.php

The window.devicePixelRatio reveals the zoom level. As you adjust the zoom, you'll see the perceived screen width and height change, more on that in a second.

But I still don't think there is a consensus whether the cause it is the website, the browser, or both. Nor is there a suggested fix except for this workaround.

If elements shown on a page change based on perceived width and height of the page or screen, the site is using a responsive theme and the site's CSS rules control what stays and goes at different dimensions. Firefox can trigger that when you zoom. I don't see how that is Firefox's fault, but Google might disagree.

I am not seeing what your seeing no dates and how are you zooming in? And please provide the links search you used without any login. If others can't replicate the issue then there's nothing known what is happening. You also need to tell us the steps you did as to why it wasn't showing dates or such. Is that reddit your posting or someone else. If not then that doesn't really help narrow down the issue.
