Recently, I tried to start a bounty for two of my questions. But the error message "Unable to load popup -please try again" appears every time I start the bounty.

enter image description here

I don't know whether it is a error or a restriction on my action.

Please have a check on it. Thanks!

    $\begingroup$ @hardmath, I have carefully checked that no such program is turned on. I even meet this error message when using my smartphone. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ And now there is also a post on Meta Stack Exchange: Eeeek! Can't start a bounty on any question. $\endgroup$ Dec 21, 2018 at 9:57

Copying my answer from MSE:

Thanks for reporting this. It has been fixed across the network now and you should be able to add bounties until your heart is content.

Thanks to balpha who smashed the bug very quickly.
