Strange link box

Ok this is admittedly weird to bring up. But it appears something has changed in the way the links work for the forum headers on PC. On Google chrome I get a small window around the word for the forum like "community" that allows me to click the link, but if I try to click the word itself it doesn't have a hyperlink. Here are a couple of pictures. Not a giant big deal obviously but it is weird and I get a lot of mis-clicks because I out of habit click directly on the word and it doesn't link to anything unless I click on the box around the word. Almost like the word is in a box on top of the hyperlink.

I'm seeing the same thing in Chrome.

Interesting. I'm on Chrome on Mac and not seeing that. Are you both Windows? Have you updated your Chrome lately too - usually up near your picture (if logged in) in upper right of Chrome.

Same issue on PC chrome. My chrome is up to date. Its not just the community button, its also whatever is after that site feedback, jazz, general...

I only noticed it starting yesterday.
