The titles of some of the question I view are showing up as just boxes

Title Boxes

I'm running Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3 and Google Chrome (18.0.1025.142 m). Let me know if you need more information.

Update 2 - So something in Chrome appears to have died. I restarted chrome and the problem went away. Sorry for taking up peoples time investigating this.

Update - So this appears to be related to the zoom level. On my PC, its the default zoom level. Doing Ctrl + 0 will take you to the default zoom level. All other zoom levels result in the text being displayed and not the boxes.

So others dont have to pick through the comments. This only happens on some of the questions. The image question is here.

It does NOT show up as boxes with IE 8.0.6001.18702 on the same PC

It does NOT show up as boxes with Firefox 3.6.14 on the same PC

If I edit the title and type abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ and all I got were boxes. No characters at all

I do not have anything Enabled under chrome://flags

  • That sounds more like a problem with your computer's fonts, e.g.

  • Works means you can or can't reproduce it?

  • Even this question shows up as boxes to me. If I edit it, as I type, it just shows boxes. Not sure if thats helpful.

  • Try typing out all the letters, see if any work. I've had a similar issue before, actually.

  • Okay, it's not the same problem then :) Mine was about random characters disappearing, also in Chrome under XP. Do you have any chrome://flags turned on?
