I've noticed that browser updates have been causing caching problems with SO's javascript. I had a similar issue a couple times when I updated chrome, and I've seen other stories like this. The solution is generally "clear your cache", and beyond that the problem usually fixes itself after the first time you run into it. It really is generally just a caching issue.

That said, I don't see the same problem on other sites and so there may be a genuine bug here somewhere. It could be there's something in how SO has their caching setup that's causing this.


I pressed Ctrl + F5 and the problem was fixed.

I wonder how it happened... (Was the cache corrupted?)
