I am unable to repro this. Though I am using a custom dark theme

That’s really strange, it has never happened to me. Are you using a replit official theme or a custom theme?


It does it for custom and the default

Oh, this is a strange case!

Hey @GoodVessel92551!

I was able to repro this once, but no longer after the first time. I’ll keep testing this to see if I can get a stable repro!

I did some more testing and for me, it only happens when I open a Repl from the home page.


I was able to reproduce this consistently and have sent this issue to the team!
