What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

When submitting an edit, an answer or a question, buttons and preview won't show in my FireFox 3.5 on SO.

On meta, SU and SF everything's fine, as it is on SO using IE8 and Chrome.

It started today, on Aug 26th 2009, at about 13:00Z

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; ru; rv: Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

The problem persists in safe mode too.

Does anybody else experience this or it is just me?

works fine for me on Firefox 3.5.2 –  Rich Seller Aug 26 '09 at 13:38
Have you tested it in Safe Mode? –  Ladybug Killer Aug 26 '09 at 13:44
@John: yes, it persists. –  Quassnoi Aug 26 '09 at 13:46

Perhaps you've got some cached javascript. I don't know that there have been any updates, but you might want to try emptying your cache. If you don't regularly use IE8 or Chrome with SO, they may have downloaded more recent code.

It did the trick, thanks. –  Quassnoi Aug 26 '09 at 14:09

Have you got NoScript installed? if so you need to ensure that sstatic.net is not blocked

No, I don't . –  Quassnoi Aug 26 '09 at 13:40

I'm having similar problems on SO and here on meta as well. The only button that works for me is the 'edit' one and 'post your answer'. I'm using Firefox 3.5.2 and this started sometime in August or late July.

--edit-- I just verified that SO does not work in IE either so maybe my network admins are blocking something.
