# Mathjax stops rendering after clicking “An edit has been made to this post”

I have noticed in the last two weeks or so that after clicking the "An edit has been made ..." banner, the mathjax is not rendered.

Example (before):

(and after):

Refreshing the page renders the mathjax again. Is this a (new) feature? And if not can something be done?

I am using Firefox 68.0.2 on Windows 7.

• I'm experiencing the same thing on Chrome Version 76.0.3809.100, Windows 10. – Nyssa Aug 16 at 13:43
• Add me too in the list! – Ak19 Aug 16 at 14:04
• Happens on Firefox 68.0.2 on Unix, and on Windows 10. I just re-load. – Arturo Magidin Aug 16 at 14:57
• My experience is that the MathJax eventually renders again, but it takes a long time (maybe 30 seconds). – Eric Wofsey Aug 16 at 17:09
• Sometimes happens on Chrome. Indeed it renders again but it doesn't last too much. At most 2-3 seconds. – Isabella Aug 16 at 17:38
• nevermind. I have just seen an edited question and the mathjax is not rendered unless refreshing the page. It's the first time this happens, time ago it was 2-3 seconds and sometimes. – Isabella Aug 16 at 18:27
• Same problem with Opera 62.0.3331.119 for Mac. Reloading causes the MathJax to render. It has been this way for a couple of days now. – Xander Henderson Aug 16 at 23:43
• Migh be related to here where MathJax slowed down after questions were closed (this is still not completely fixed, see my comments there). – Bill Dubuque Aug 17 at 0:24
• @EricWofsey Using FireFox version $68.0.1$ on Windows $7$, I noticed very similar behavior, i.e., it takes quite a while (about $30$ or so seconds as you mention) for MathJax to render on its own. However, refreshing the screen seems to always cause it to render again considerably faster. – John Omielan Aug 17 at 1:25
• Using Chrome 76.0.3809.100, I found that the problem has now disappeared. Anyone else experience the same thing? – Toby Mak Aug 25 at 12:38
• Using Chrome Version 76.0.3809.132 and I still have the problem. – saulspatz Aug 31 at 17:11
• (1) It is perhaps worth noting that this is still an issue (see here). (2) As a workaround, the MathJax bookmarklet can be used without forcing a reload. – Xander Henderson Oct 21 at 19:34
• @XanderHenderson, thanks for that. I kind of assume that as the [status-review] tag was added to my question, something may happen eventually. – Peter Phipps Oct 21 at 20:00
• Same problem here, with Safari on a Mac. – Gerry Myerson Oct 21 at 21:26
• Same problem using Chromium 77.0.3865.90 on Linux (Fedora 30), dating back to slightly before the current post (persisting through both browser and OS updates). – hardmath Oct 22 at 23:36
