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

Clicking the close link on a question opens up a close vote popup, that no longer shows the radio buttons on the left that indicate your selection. You can click on the actual text and it will allow a selection, however, it doesn't display that any longer.

It started working correctly for two close votes, but just happened again, here is another example:

Can't repro that. What browser? – balpha Jun 13 '11 at 11:54
Chrome 11.0.696.68 – jzd Jun 13 '11 at 12:01
@balpha, strange. It is working now. I saw the popup missing radio buttons 3 separate times on more than one SE site. Now, each time I click close, I see the radio buttons. – jzd Jun 13 '11 at 12:04
The only way I can get this to repro is by casting my vote then re-opening the 'close' UI. Naturally, I can't re-select and re-submit at this point. Oh, and @jzd, Chrome's at v12.0.742.91 - get with the times, man! – Grant Thomas Jun 13 '11 at 12:05
@Mr. Disappointment, yes that would be normal behavior, but this was the first time I clicked close for that question. – jzd Jun 13 '11 at 12:08
@jzd: Ya, figured that - just sayin'. – Grant Thomas Jun 13 '11 at 12:10
@balpha, just upgraded my browser to 12.0.742.91, and restarted it. It is happening again, I added another example. – jzd Jun 13 '11 at 12:11
@Mr. Disappointment, also if you click on the close vote after you already have voted the title should say "You have already voted" instead of "why should this question be closed?" – jzd Jun 13 '11 at 12:12
I get this occasionally (and have done for previous versions of Chrome), but it seems to go away if I restart the browser. I've yet to discern a pattern. – ChrisF Jun 13 '11 at 12:16
I should add that the buttons are still there and clickable - just not visible. – ChrisF Jun 13 '11 at 12:23
isn't it funny that a lot of these web page problems are related to Chrome ? – Brian Jun 13 '11 at 13:09
@ChrisF There's a long-standing Windows-specific rendering bug in Chrome related to this, if I recall correctly, so it might be that. – Tim Stone Jun 13 '11 at 15:04
