Windows 7: Chrome Does Not Render Wikipedia Entries Properly

Chrome Does Not Render Wikipedia Entries Properly

I am using the most recent version of Google Chrome, and it does not render the ff. Wikipedia page properly:

H. P. Lovecraft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The top of the blue box in the section "Forbidden Knowledge" (under "Themes") overlaps the second line of the texts in the same section. The problem persists in incognito mode, with all extensions disabled, and with a full uninstall (using Ccleaner) and reinstall of Chrome.

The problem doesn't appear in IE 9 or the latest version of Chromium (22.0.1206.0, which I am using).

I would like to know if it is possible to fix this problem. Otherwise, I will stick to Chromium.

Do you have any flags set in about:flags? I have found that some of the rendering options can cause problems.

Thanks for the tip! I did not know that feature.

For Chrome, everything is disabled except for

Threaded compositing (default)
Inline HistoryQuickProvider suggestions (automatic)

For Chromium, it's

GPU compositing on all pages (default)
Threaded compositing (default)
Pointer lock (default)
Use new scoring in HistoryQuickProvider (automatic)
Reorder results for inlining in HistoryQuickProvider (automatic)
Inline HistoryQuickProvider suggestions (automatic)
Touch Optimized UI (automatic)

I'm running Chrome 20.0.1132.57 m with no problems on that page. It might be worth reporting on the Chrome Issues site. http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry

Chrome does the same for me. Firefox is good. Maxthon 3 using webkit renders like Chrome, but in Retro Mode it is ok, so I guess it's how the webkit engine renders the page.
