When viewing questions with latex formatting, the page doesn't dislay to start with, and has a yellow icon with an exclamation mark at the bottom right with the error codes:

Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; GTB6.6) Timestamp: Wed, 2 Mar 2011 01:01:17 UTC

Message: No such element Line: 35 Char: 3 Code: 0 URI: https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/content/js/third-party/MathJax/MathJax.js

If I refresh the page it displays correctly without the error code.

But I can't do this when trying to preview my answer because it wipes my answer clean.

How can I get around this problem?

  • $\begingroup$ I had the same problems too. Even when it rendered it was painfully slow. I switched to FireFox for browsing Math.SE. $\endgroup$ – Aryabhata Mar 2 '11 at 4:48
  • $\begingroup$ @moron, thanks, I'll have to look into the other browsers then. $\endgroup$ – John McVirgooo Mar 2 '11 at 5:17
  • $\begingroup$ Do people still use IE? $\endgroup$ – user17762 Mar 2 '11 at 16:12
  • $\begingroup$ @swivaram, 50% use firefox, 25% use IE and Chrome: w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp $\endgroup$ – John McVirgooo Mar 2 '11 at 18:23
  • $\begingroup$ Interesting to note that 26.6% of the internet users are still in the stone age. $\endgroup$ – user17762 Mar 4 '11 at 2:54

I believe this is resolved in MathJax 1.1 and 1.1a? IE7 is our absolute minimum supported browser, but IE8 should work fine.
