When a page has loaded the first time, sometimes links like edit, add comment, share, flag do not work. I have been having noticing this for quite some time now.

On reloading the page, either refresh or clicking on the post title however, they seem to work.

But then, I noticed this not only while at work but also at home.

  • First, I thought it would have something to do with caching of scripts etc. So I even tried clearing my cache.

  • And this is not for deleted/closed questions, I verified.

  • There are no errors in my browser console either.

Although, I know it might not be a well-documented bug because I use only Chrome (v21.0.1180.79 m), I thought it should still be worth posting.


This was the error

Uncaught TypeError: Property '$' of object [object Window] is not a function 

in the file cdn.sstatic.net/js/full.js?v=c60de8021771:24

enter image description here

I'm guessing something hasn't loaded the first time? Still digging into it.

I use chrome and do not have that problems. – juergen d Aug 21 '12 at 12:13
I forgot to ask if it's just me or has anybody else also come across this glitch.(if it even is one) – Robin Maben Aug 21 '12 at 12:16
Maybe it's a connection issue and the scripts are not completely loading? Did you check the network tab on chrome tools? – bfavaretto Aug 21 '12 at 13:24
@bfavaretto: The network tab should already be open for it to show the requests being made. :/ – Robin Maben Aug 21 '12 at 13:31
What version of Chrome? – Time Traveling Bobby Aug 21 '12 at 13:31

Might be a Chrome bug. – Time Traveling Bobby Aug 21 '12 at 13:36
@WaffelizedBobby: See my update. I was able to reproduce this. – Robin Maben Aug 21 '12 at 14:56
