Previous question: Text on chat buttons is gone

That was when my buttons died.

On other days, my text dies.

No text

And some times it's just italics.

Italics gone

Now, I like blaming @skiwi for this, and he's often nearby when it happens.

But today, he's not here, and it happened again.

italics died again

I'm running Windows 8 and using Chrome 40.0.2214.94 m.

Refreshing and such does not fix the issue.

Inspect element -> console -> error log:

http://chat.stackexchange.com/chats/8595/messages/new Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 409 (Conflict)

What's going on here?

I should note, I can view italics by selecting, then alt-tabbing:

I can read italics

So it reeks of a client-side issue. What's hiding the text from me?

EDIT:

30 april 2015 it happened again =/

  • How much memory does your computer have? Have you tried inspecting the affected elements? Commented Feb 4, 2015 at 16:17
  • @SimonAndréForsberg <div class="content"><i>test</i></div> The content is just there. I have 8 GB memory.

  • If it is a client-side issue (which it apparently is), then I think this doesn't really belong on MSE. Super User (or similar) might be a better fit? Commented Feb 4, 2015 at 16:22
  • I don't see how Super User could help me out here...

  • Other users could say "yep, I have this bug too"

  • For me closing the browser and opening it again always helped. Good to know I'm not the only one though! Commented Feb 4, 2015 at 16:33
  • The 409's you see are from the chatserver if it is flooded with requests. Are you on a corperate network that blocks imgur.com?

  • @Pimgd did you by any chance add special options e.g. those suggested in this answer? Commented Feb 4, 2015 at 23:25
  • @ShadowWizard I only disabled directwrite, as per the second answer, because it made some website harder to read for me.

  • Well, happened to me just now - after Chrome restart, all good again. :) Commented Jun 3, 2015 at 12:43

This is a specific issue with either your network provider or something upstream of your connection. We have no control over these things and are unable to reproduce this issue.

  • Not 100% specific, as it happens to me too, once in a while. Still no idea how exactly and how to reproduce, but it looks like some weird Chrome issue Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 16:33
  • @ShadowWizard it's most definitely a chrome issue because it happens both at work and at home, from time to time
