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

This may be a stupid question on my part and/or possibly a duplicate, but I'm having problems deleting ignored tags from Stack Overflow.

When I hover over them, I don't see any "X" to delete the tag nor does the description box popup like it used to. Also, the ignored tags are not ignoring any questions anymore.

If it helps, I have nearly 200 to 300 ignore tags selected atm.

It works fine for me.

Did you deactivate JavaScript?

Try to clear your cache and cookies eventually to begin with a fresh state. Try also another browser to check if it is really a global problem or just on one browser.

I can still use js, but I'll try your other solutions. – Bryce Siedschlaw May 20 '11 at 13:53
So, I tried clearing the cache and it failed. When I tried using chrome it succeeded. Looks like FF is the culprit. Not exactly sure why though... did they do an update recently or something? At any rate, thanks :) – Bryce Siedschlaw May 20 '11 at 13:58
Firefox 4.0.1 is working well for me. Maybe you have an extension responsible for this? Try safe-mode eventually. Check for update. – M'vy May 20 '11 at 14:12
I deleted a couple of tags in Chrome and now it's working well in FF. I'm not sure what the exact cause was, but I'm pretty sure that the amount of tags had something to do with it. – Bryce Siedschlaw May 20 '11 at 14:16
