Here comes a question from RyanRogers:

Preview, commenting, upvoting, accepting answer, posting all not working.

When I try to ask a new question, edit a question, or answer a question on main or meta, the auto preview doesn't work, the tags and title fields don't give a list of tags and titles, clicking "submit" just moves me to the top of the page. Ironically, this means I can't even post on meta about this issue.

When I click the "accept" check mark on an answer to my question, nothing happens. "Favourite" and "upvote" are also unresponsive.

Clicking "add comment" doesn't work. It just brings me to the top of the page.

These problems are present in both Firefox and Chrome.

I've verified that all java plugins are enabled in both browsers. I've cleared the cache in both browsers. No change.

(Obviously, RyanRogers can't post this question; that's why I did it. The text is copied from this posting.)

Somehow the problem has fixed itself. After playing around with java plugins and clearing the cache with no success, I just gave up for several days. Suddenly everything works.

I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else because I have no advice on how to fix the issue other than to clear the cache and wait a few days.

Thanks to saz for posting this question on meta for me.
