I recently crossed over 3k rep on SO so "close" (or "reopen") links have now started appearing for me. However when I click on a close link I get a brief "twirly" progress animation in place, followed by... nothing.
- Greasemonkey (with a couple of Livejournal-only user scrips)
- Java Console 6.0.27
- Java Quick Starter 1.0
- Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.2.1
- Tab Mix PLus 0.3.8.6
- TortoiseSVN Menu 0.2.5
- VMWare Remote Conosle Plug-in 184.108.40.206581.
I don't know enough about web-related stuff to have any idea as to whether any of these might affect the behaviour of the close link.
I have tried it in Chrome and it works as expected there, popping up a small window with radio buttons for the various close options.
