The suggested questions' titles here are not parsed:

I find this a bit odd, because they are indeed parsed in other scenarios, like this:

Why aren't the titles parsed when suggesting questions? I think it would be very useful to have them parsed by default.

  • $\begingroup$ There was some other instance where titles didn't parse... Hm.. let me try to remember.. Edit: Ah yes, it is when you switch tabs in your answers/questions: this picture shows it. I switched from the newest tab to the votes tab. $\endgroup$ – Karl Kronenfeld Sep 23 '13 at 4:49
  • $\begingroup$ (This might be related but...probably not). Previously tag wikis were not parsed when you mouse-oever-ed them. However, this was because it took too long to complete before the pop-up popped. MathJax is now fast enough for this not to matter, so it is rendered when you mouse over now. See here. $\endgroup$ – user1729 Sep 23 '13 at 9:51
  • $\begingroup$ So, this has potential to be a feature request? $\endgroup$ – Zol Tun Kul Sep 24 '13 at 9:39
  • $\begingroup$ @Omega Most certainly. I'd consider it a great feature, even though there already exists a workaround. $\endgroup$ – Lord_Farin Sep 25 '13 at 7:14
  • $\begingroup$ (Bump) I'd like to insist on having this feature! The workaround is good, but there's no reason to not have this by default. $\endgroup$ – Zol Tun Kul Dec 5 '13 at 4:15

I've included a fix for this issue in the Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch v1.2. It turns out to be very simple — I just need to tell MathJax to re-typeset the titles after they're loaded via AJAX. The code that does this in SOUP is:

hookAjax( /^\/search\/titles\b/, function () {
    typeof(MathJax) !== 'undefined' &&
        MathJax.Hub.Queue(['Typeset', MathJax.Hub, 'question-suggestions']);
} );

where hookAjax() is a wrapper around $.ajaxSuccess() that I use to inject code into the SE framework's AJAX handling.

ps. The next version will also include a fix for the related issue on the user profile page pointed out by Karl Kronenfeld in the comments. I missed that comment originally, which is why it's not in v.1.2.0 yet.

    $\begingroup$ I can't really believe that after $5$ whole years, this still hasn’t been done. Would you please be so kind as to add the bug tag to the question? $\endgroup$ – tchrist Nov 4 '18 at 21:25

You can use Robjohn Chatjax links to parse it. You can get it here: https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/3297/19341

Clicking "start Chatjax" after you entered your title get's you

And as an extra, it even works at the arxiv...
