Using Firefox 41.0.2 on Ubuntu 14.04, most table of contents in the online docs have unreadable highlighted sections, where modules/methods are named.

See for a good example, or the attached screenshot.

I think this highlighting has appeared recently.
The 3.x versions are fine, as is 2.6.

In addition, the object description headers (function names...) are not styled as they should be.

Has the doc style been changed recently?

I upgraded Sphinx a month or so ago. Could that do it?

That's possible. I'll have a look.

Should be fixed now (a rebuild of the online docs will be done within a few hours). Thanks for the report!
