I am using Chrome 18.0.1025.142 on a Windows 7 machine. There are two recent behaviours of MathJaX I have observed:

  1. We may want to see the TeX commands for some of the math we see on the main site. It is usually done by Show Math as -> TeX commands. But when I used to do this before, it comes up as a small screen and it looked good. But,now, it opens in a new window but not small, as it used to. I need to open that as a tab or maximize that window every time to see those commands.$^\dagger$

  2. The math in the comments appear in a darker shade than they used to. Is that a new "feature" or an undesirable behaviour? Personally, I classify that as the latter.


$\dagger$ Antonio Vargas confirmed this bug in chrome, the same version, at the Math chat room. The user robjohn confirms that this works fine on Firefox 11.0 for Mac (OS X 10.5.8).

    $\begingroup$ Yes, I can confirm this bug, at least #1 (though now that I look again math in comments does seem a bit darker). I was talking to Kannappan in chat and I mentioned that everything was working fine for me with Chrome 17.0.963.83m. However, upon loading the "about" window, Chrome automatically updated to 18.0.1025.142 and I immediately experienced error #1 described. If I right-click and select Show Math as -> TeX commands, the small window loads but is invisible and apparently inaccessible. $\endgroup$ – Antonio Vargas Mar 31 '12 at 21:21
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for confirming and perhaps describing better. Yes, it is apparently inaccessible. $\endgroup$ – user21436 Mar 31 '12 at 21:33

It looks like Chrome 18 has changed how it handles allowing javascript to resize a window (there are security issues with this), and so MathJax's window no longer opens properly. I'm looking into it to see what can be done.

  • $\begingroup$ I'll accept this as an answer because I know we'll hear from you soon. $\endgroup$ – user21436 Apr 2 '12 at 0:12
  • $\begingroup$ It looks like it is this bug, and that it may already be fixed in Chrome 19. I'll still look at fixing it, but may not have a new version out before Chrome 19 appears. $\endgroup$ – Davide Cervone Apr 2 '12 at 11:06
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I see. I am not savvy enough to understand the issues but still will appreciate a fix. Regards, $\endgroup$ – user21436 Apr 2 '12 at 11:22
