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

I've submitted three close votes today and in all three cases there was a bug on vote-to-close submission.

I click "Vote To Close" and the progress indicator (three cycling dots) appears. Then, behind the dialog (mostly obscured) I see a blue box appear for a few seconds then disappear (presumably this is the dialog telling me my close vote has been submitted, but I can't see what it says because it is obscured). But the progress indicator never finishes and the dialog remains open.

I checked the console and saw no javascript errors and no failed ajax calls, and one successful ajax call to the vote-to-close endpoint. And upon reloading the page I can see that my close vote did in fact go through. So the bug is just with the dialog not closing after success, not with the actual close vote submission.

couldn't reproduce that. which browser are you using? – m0sa Jul 18 '13 at 8:32
@m0sa, Chrome 28, but I actually just narrowed it down to an extension causing the problem. It was version 1.3 of “View Vote totals” without 1000 rep -- I just replaced it with the newest version of this extension (1.5.3) and the problem has been solved. Is this worth posting as an answer or should this question be closed? – Ben Lee Jul 18 '13 at 15:30
post a reminder on the extension's post so other people don't run into it. – m0sa Jul 19 '13 at 10:59
