Screennames upside down?

All the screen names appear upside down (it did work correctly when I visited this website last, likely in 2012 or 2013 however). Firefox 59 on Debian testing/sid.

Example:

Any idea how to fix this?

Re: Screennames upside down?

There must be something wrong with your browser, date checking abilities, or even graphic card, we had this kind of problems with some users before...interesting fact is that it always happens on the same day of the year, check out your graphic card expiration DATE.

Well this has nothing to do with the video card. I've checked it on my laptop as well, same thing. Also in a different browser (chromium), same thing on both devices.

Interestingly, when I open the images that contain the screennames in a separate tab or download them and open in an image viewer, they are showing correctly. So there is no problem with images themselves, only in the web page they are shown mirrored vertically for some reason.

Re: Screennames upside down?

I have narrowed it down to the following CSS class that the screennames belong to:

.excessive-screenname{-webkit-transform:scaleY(-1);-moz-transform:scaleY(-1);-ms-transform:scaleY(-1);-o-transform:scaleY(-1);transform:scaleY(-1);display:inline-block;}

Indeed, this causes the images (as it would any other element) to flip vertically.
I wonder why it does not affect others (or maybe just nobody cares?).
The proper value of the Y scale factor would be 1, I guess, and also I fail to see the point of having those scale values there at all. The default scale factor is 1 anyway, and the minus sign is weird.
Does it sound reasonable to only keep the display property there and remove the scaleY ones?

p.s. this class is defined in https://www.excessiveplus.net/files/css/css_53107ea90fbd12aea19a1e9785b330f1.css and used in every screenname like this:

<img src="/files/screenname/bfc94f9a16d154073e49009f083751da.png" alt="shaprc" title="shaprc"  align="absmiddle" class="excessive-screenname" />
