Lately I've been experiencing some problems with the the display of formulas. Occasionally I get something like in this picture.enter image description here

I'm using Chrome on Windows 7. So far I couldn't find anything that is responsible for this neither could I produce this display on purpose. Does anyone know what might cause this/how to fix this/if it affects only me?

    $\begingroup$ Usually, MathJax rendering bugs can be "fixed" by refreshing the page (perhaps more than once) before they are fixed in code. $\endgroup$ Aug 16, 2015 at 18:32

    $\begingroup$ The same problem has been reported earlier. I have experienced this problem, too. I'm using Firefox on Windows 7. Usually exiting and reloading helps. Just refreshing the page does not always work (even if yoou do it multiple times). $\endgroup$ Aug 16, 2015 at 18:32

    $\begingroup$ @Jyrki: Are you trying hard refresh? (Ctrl+F5) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Ok, so it's not a new problem. I'll try the hard refresh as well next time it happens! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Jyrki, Hirshy: I'm not saying it will solve the problem; but if refreshing helps at all, then hard refresh is probably the answer. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Hard refresh works fine for me :). As a side note, hard refresh on apple is done with cmd+shift+R $\endgroup$
