XF 1.2 Sidebar messed up

I was just working on my style then suddenly I noticed that it messed up the navsidebar. My page that's having the issue is the Alerts page under the Novus style.

If anyone would be able to help me out with a few pointers that be great.

My attempts:
- default template shows it correctly
- Tons of CSS repairs that fix it in Chrome's debuger
a:link, a:visited {
color: rgb(32, 69, 103);
text-decoration: none;
+display: block;
+padding: 5px 10px;
+word-wrap: normal;
+overflow: hidden;
+text-overflow: ellipsis;
