The text of the download links in the header (inside the gray download box) are too long and thus generate an unwanted linebreak.
Solution might be:
It indeed is a font thingy; over the years I added some more and more pixels to the box to fit for everybody, but with the new nightly name it ran out of space again. Adding more pixels is not fully trivial because of the way it is created. Indeed, using CSS stuff for this would be better; someone was working on that, but I have read that for a few months now. So not sure how that is going exactly ;)
Possibly quickest solution is to extend the image again, giving it some more space. 10px or so should be sufficient already, but I guess 200px or so would be fine too.
Anyone up making a PR for that? Tnx :D
It's not only a thing of the choosed font itself but also a thing of it's font size. The site was designed years ago with a typical font in a typical font size (13 or 14 pixels at that time) in mind. So the background image for the block was sized to fit two lines (links to nightly and stable). Back then the block got overcrowded, when it has to contain three lines of links (nightly, beta or release candidate and stable).
For now I can say, that the block is large enough in Firefox with no minimal font size set but to small with a minimal font size of 14px. I can see this behaviour in Windows 10 and in Ubuntu 16.04.06. A similar but at the same time different behaviour I can see in Vivaldi (Chromium engine). There is no minimal font size set but when I play with the zoom slider and set the page zoom down to 80%, the link to the nightly breaks out of the container. This happens only in Windows but not in Ubuntu.
So we can assume that it is a combination of the font used in reality (dependient from the system of the user) and of the font size settings in the browser. As a website creator one has no information about the real conditions on a system. That is inherent to the system. So a CSS ruleset that let the block shrink or grow with it's content is the best solution.
I want to help but I need a few days for other stuff before.
