Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In Chrome today (and perhaps earlier) when I attempt to add an answer to a StackOverflow question, I find no row of buttons above the entry box and so cannot easily add links or font styles. If I log in with IE, no problem. [Windows 7/64]

I cannot reproduce that here. Did you clear your cache and reload the page? Some javascript probably failed to load. – Martijn Pieters Jan 2 '13 at 12:01
Can't reproduce it either, tried logging in unprimed from a VM as well. – Tim Post Jan 2 '13 at 12:02
Most likely cache issue. – Shadow Wizard Jan 3 '13 at 12:10

All the evidence points to this having been a cache issue. It is not possible to confirm this because the problem no longer occurs.

Please do not again delete my answer to my own (implied) question. The fact that I have accepted the strong probability that it was a cache issue may be of value to others who research a similar problem.
