a screenshot with the problem

In LTR wikis the username is left-aligned and appears next to the user icon.

Based on this logic, in RTL wikis the username should be right-aligned. This is what happens in Chrome, but in Firefox it's left-aligned, and away from the user icon.

I suspect that this is a Firefox bug, but it needs further investigation.

See the screenshot; Firefox is on the top.

I am inviting some non-MediaWiki people to test this, so here are more detailed instructions to reproduce:

1. Log in to the Hebrew Wikipedia.
2. Click the Beta link in the top bar near the username (or go to ).
3. Check "סרגל אישי מוקטן".
4. Scroll down and save the preferences.
5. Examine the little box with the username in the top left corner.

I didn't investigate this too deeply myself, but a standards expert told me that the likely cause is the following Firefox bug:

I'm going to add a CSS workaround.
