When searching on Stackoverflow using SRWare Iron 20.0.1150.1 (Which is google's Chrome browser without google) I noticed that the search-results change after a one or two seconds which is quite annoying if you try to click a question which then disappears right before your eye.

Steps to reproduce: Open StackOverflow in a Chromium browser and search for "configuring snmp" or click this link (After this has been resolved thanks to Martijns answer: You will need to ignore the -tag and have the 'hide ignored tags'-preference enabled)

Current behavior: Search results are being displayed, and after one or two seconds resorted:

Initial result: enter image description here

After one or two seconds: enter image description here

Expected behavior: The search results appear and stay where they are ;)


You are probably ignoring certain tags, and have the 'hide ignored tags' preference enabled.

Ignored tags are handled on the client side, so they are either dimmed or removed from the page when the page has loaded. If you ignore either the or the the first post will be removed. The third post on that page also uses the tag, it could be removed as well.

If your browser is a little slow, or the network takes a long time to serve some resource used by the page, that can be after a noticeable delay.

In any case, I have on my ignore list, but have the 'hide ignored tags' preference disabled, so the page you linked to looks like this for me:

Dimmed posts on the search results

The posts are dimmed shortly after the page loaded.
