Unable to accept answer for a question with a bounty

I have a question on Super User that I would like to accept an answer for, but there's no checkmark to click next to any of the answers.

Why can't I accept an answer?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Did you add a bounty to it in the past? – ChrisF Dec 11 '09 at 19:26

If you ever had a bounty set on it, and said bounty expired, you permanently lose the ability to select an answer afterward:

This would be why we need to add the bounty stuff to the edit history... I know there's a Feature request on it somewhere, but I'm guessing it could use a bump. – AnonJr Dec 11 '09 at 20:09
Hmm... I don't recall setting a bounty on it, but I might have. – jasonh Dec 11 '09 at 20:16
@jasonh, according to your reputation history, you set a bounty on it around July 18th. (If you ever forget if you've added a bounty, just look for a dip in your reputation graph) – Brandon Dec 11 '09 at 21:36
@Brandon: Thanks for the validation. That does make this officially a duplicate of 32358, so I'm gonna vote to close now. (I held off until there was validation that this is the bounty issue.) – John Rudy Dec 11 '09 at 21:44

no checkmarks to click next to each answer

The checkmarks are images so something could be keeping them from loading. You could check if you have images disabled or maybe some ad blocking software giving a false positive.
