The Database Tables Exclusion page appears illegible.

The ungly look of the Database Tables Exclusion page happens  only on Chrome, Opera, Edge, and Avast browsers on my Windows 10 computer.

Firefox displays the page fine.

The problem seems to be the combination of "float: left;" and "display: inline-block;" for the ".table-container span.table-icon-container" elements. Firefox seems to recognize the problem and automatically rectifies it by disabling the "display: inline-block;" as it points out too.

Try changing the CSS of those elements into "display: inline-flex;"

That's interesting. The default behavior in Safari is to give it a display: block attribute. The original Edge also gave it the same attribute. It appears that Blink (the Chromium rendering engine) only relatively recently started applying display: inline-block for these elements and apparently only on Windows and Linux? I could not reproduce this issue on macOS and my other developer who could reproduce it on Linux can't write CSS so I was trying different things to solve it, completely blindly.

Now it all makes perfect sense.

Thank you!
