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): before image

(and after): after image

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.

    $\begingroup$ Happens on Firefox 68.0.2 on Unix, and on Windows 10. I just re-load. $\endgroup$ – Arturo Magidin Aug 16 '19 at 14:57

    $\begingroup$ My experience is that the MathJax eventually renders again, but it takes a long time (maybe 30 seconds). $\endgroup$ – Eric Wofsey Aug 16 '19 at 17:09

    $\begingroup$ Sometimes happens on Chrome. Indeed it renders again but it doesn't last too much. At most 2-3 seconds. $\endgroup$ – Bellatrix Aug 16 '19 at 17:38
  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Bellatrix Aug 16 '19 at 18:27

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Xander Henderson Aug 16 '19 at 23:43
  • $\begingroup$ Migh be related to here where MathJax slowed down after questions were closed (this is still not completely fixed, see my comments there). $\endgroup$ – Bill Dubuque Aug 17 '19 at 0:24
  • $\begingroup$ @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. $\endgroup$ – John Omielan Aug 17 '19 at 1:25
  • $\begingroup$ Using Chrome 76.0.3809.100, I found that the problem has now disappeared. Anyone else experience the same thing? $\endgroup$ – Toby Mak Aug 25 '19 at 12:38
  • $\begingroup$ Using Chrome Version 76.0.3809.132 and I still have the problem. $\endgroup$ – saulspatz Aug 31 '19 at 17:11

    $\begingroup$ (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. $\endgroup$ – Xander Henderson Oct 21 '19 at 19:34
  • $\begingroup$ @XanderHenderson, thanks for that. I kind of assume that as the [status-review] tag was added to my question, something may happen eventually. $\endgroup$ – Peter Phipps Oct 21 '19 at 20:00
  • $\begingroup$ Same problem here, with Safari on a Mac. $\endgroup$ – Gerry Myerson Oct 21 '19 at 21:26

    $\begingroup$ This needs to be fixed! There's no reason, at least as a work-around, that clicking the "An edit has been made to this post" link shouldn't auto-refresh the webpage. $\endgroup$ – Adrian Keister Dec 12 '19 at 20:16
