Several of the answers to this question use MathJax, and everything displays fine. However, I got a notification about a comment, and when I follow this link to the comment, the MathJax gets jumbled. The jumbling doesn't happen every time; if I reload the page several times, about half the time the MathJax displays fine. Here is a screen capture: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ it happens with me too and not only on Puzzling SE but also on math and physics and chemistry...if it happens with all the people then maybe Puzzling meta is not the right place for this post. You should consider posting it on Main Meta of stack exchange $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Julian if this is recent, then try cleaning your browser cache. We pushed a new release of MathJax yesterday. $\endgroup$ Feb 9 '16 at 18:10
  • $\begingroup$ @manshu - why? Stack Exchange developers monitor all metas. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Oded i didn't knew it...I thought these kind of issues which are related to all the sites of SE must be placed there... Thanks for the info. and clarification. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @manshu - things that require the larger community discussion do benefit from going to MSE (discussion, feature requests that do pertain to all SE sites). Bug reports - no so much :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Peter I cleared the browser cache, but the issue persists. $\endgroup$ Feb 10 '16 at 14:12
  • $\begingroup$ I'll add that I experience this issue with Chrome, but eveything displays correctly in Safari $\endgroup$ Feb 10 '16 at 14:16
  • $\begingroup$ @Julian hm... Chrome sometimes requires a restart to really clear the cache. Did you happen to do one? $\endgroup$ Feb 10 '16 at 21:15
  • $\begingroup$ @Peter I did a restart, still the same issue $\endgroup$ Feb 10 '16 at 22:42
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, @Julian. It was a long shot. Could you post what MathJax about info from the MathJax menu says? $\endgroup$ Feb 10 '16 at 22:53
  • $\begingroup$ @Peter MathJax v2.6.1 using web TeX fonts, MathJax.js v2.6.1, TeX Input Jax v2.6.1, HTML-CSS Output Jax v2.6.1, PreviewHTML Output Jax v2.6.1, mml Element Jax v2.6.0, AssistiveMML Extension v2.6.1, MathEvents Extension v2.6.0, MathMenu Extension v2.6.1, MathZoom Extension v2.6.0, TeX/AMSmath Extension v2.6.1, TeX/AMSsymbols Extension v2.6.0, TeX/noErrors Extension v2.6.0, TeX/noUndefined Extension v2.6.0, fast-preview Extension v2.6.0, tex2jax Extension v2.6.0, Chrome v48.0.2564.103 — woff or otf fonts $\endgroup$ Feb 10 '16 at 23:10
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, @Jullian. Nothing suspicious in there; sigh. Do you have any extensions or bookmarklets running? What OS are you using? $\endgroup$ Feb 11 '16 at 8:25
  • $\begingroup$ @Peter I disabled all my extensions and restarted, the issue persists. No bookmarklets. I see this on Windows 7 and Mac OSX 10.10. $\endgroup$ Feb 11 '16 at 15:06
  • $\begingroup$ @JulianRosen Ok I'm running out of ideas. FWIW, I can't reproduce this Windows 7 (Chrome, though v48.0.2564.97m but I'm guessing that's close enough) or on OSX 10.10 (though I can only test 49 and 50 there and not with TeX fonts). It seems like a Frankenbug. $\endgroup$ Feb 11 '16 at 15:56
  • $\begingroup$ Ok, now I see a problem on Windows 7 but it's different from what you reported (there's an actual error in the javascript console). I'll look into ti. $\endgroup$ Feb 11 '16 at 16:03
