I have not faced up this problem before. But today, when I open the website, I can just see the code, not the formula. Besides that, opening the website is far more slower than before.

  • $\begingroup$ Where are you physically based? It is possible that there's some problem loading MathJax due to connectivity problems. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Feb 14 '12 at 11:41

    $\begingroup$ Yes, but your location may have problems accessing the content distribution network used by StackExchange and or MathJax. Without giving more information, and unless other users can confirm that they too are seeing this problem, your much-too-brief description of the problem will likely be closed and marked as non-reproducible. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Feb 14 '12 at 11:51

  • $\begingroup$ @Willie Wong but I don't have this problem when opening MAthoverflow $\endgroup$ – 89085731 Feb 14 '12 at 12:12
  • $\begingroup$ @Rahul Narain it doesn't work $\endgroup$ – 89085731 Feb 14 '12 at 12:16
  • $\begingroup$ @gingerjin: which actually affirms my assertion. Math.SE loads MathJaX from cdn.mathjax.org, while MO runs their version from their local server latex.mathoverflow.net. That MO works has pretty much 0 relevance to your problem. A better test would be to see if you can see the math display on stats.stackexchange.com or physics.stackexchange.com ; or see if you can get mathjax.org/demos/tex-samples to render correctly. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Feb 14 '12 at 15:22
  • $\begingroup$ See also meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/2848/… It has been rumoured that the Chinese web censorship system blocks MathJax. If you live in a region where there's government mandated web access control, that may be the issue. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Feb 14 '12 at 15:24
  • $\begingroup$ If you use Firefox, one thing you can do to help clarify the issue is to open up "Tools -> Web Developer -> Web Console" and try to load math.stackexchange.com. That should show you why MathJax is failing to load and why you are, if I guessed correctly, getting connection timed-out issues which slows down your browsing. There are probably similar tools for Opera and Chrome. If you specify your operating system and web browser someone can help you find the appropriate tool to identify the problem. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Feb 14 '12 at 15:28
