Summary0022346: Highlight the linked-to issue

When following the link to a bug note (here is a random example), the browser directly jumps to that bug note. However, since the introduction of Modern UI, there is is a black bar at the top of the issue tracker that is always visible and partly obfuscates the linked note. This makes it difficult to understand which note was being linked.

Two proposed fixes:

  1. Ensure that the bug note is not covered by the black bar. I am not sure if this is possible without JavaScript.
  2. Somehow highlight the linked-to issue using the CSS pseudo-class :target. For example, the background could be changed to yellow. This would be a good idea regardless of the reported issue, because on a big screen and a short bug page, it might not be the case that the browser can scroll the linked-to bug note to the top of the screen anyway.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thanks for pointing at the duplicate. Since suggestion 2 in my bug description is somewhat independent from the original issue (no matter if the top bar hides the linked note or not, it would be nice if it was highlighted) and might be easier to implement than a proper bugfix, maybe this issue could be reopened and renamed to "Highlight linked bug notes"?
