I access this site using Chrome from myou smartphone. Recently, the MathJax formatted writings appear overlapped, for example in the following answer:

What could be the reason for this?

Update: problem continues on math SE also. See below.

I've cleared chrome (v58) data, cache, browsing history, cookies, everything.

Phone is Samsung Galaxy On7 with Android 6.0-marshmallow.

  • $\begingroup$ As usual with this type of bug, you should supply the exact versions of the browser and OS you're using. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty May 9 '17 at 22:29
  • $\begingroup$ You should also update add-on, clear caches, and make other local attempts to insure that it is really a problem. Though I am less certain of which of those you can do on mobile browsers (or how to do them). $\endgroup$ – dmckee May 9 '17 at 22:44
  • $\begingroup$ @dmckee Done all. Cleared browsing data, cache, and the rest, but problem persists. $\endgroup$ – Wrichik Basu May 10 '17 at 4:34
  • $\begingroup$ @Emilio Chrome is of version 58.0.3029.83 (latest) $\endgroup$ – Wrichik Basu May 10 '17 at 4:46
  • $\begingroup$ I'm unable to reproduce is on Chrome 58. What OS are you using? Also, make sure to restart chrome after clearing the cache. $\endgroup$ – Peter Krautzberger May 10 '17 at 9:14
  • $\begingroup$ @Peter Android 6.0-marshmallow on Samsung Galaxy On7. Already tried your methods. $\endgroup$ – Wrichik Basu May 10 '17 at 10:27
  • $\begingroup$ @WrichikBasu I'm afraid I can't reproduce this on 6.0.1, Chrome 58. A workaround might be switching the output to SVG via the mathjax menu (double-tap&hold, can be a little tricky to trigger). $\endgroup$ – Peter Krautzberger May 10 '17 at 10:37
  • $\begingroup$ Does the problem persist in other SE sites? What about other sites in the MathJax Gallery of Selected Sites? It's pretty obvious that this bug doesn't have a wide reach, so I would advise you to try things from a wider register that will help diagnose this. Ultimately, you could also raise an issue on the MathJax page if you don't find a fix. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty May 10 '17 at 10:46
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, it does. @Emilio $\endgroup$ – Wrichik Basu May 11 '17 at 20:46
  • $\begingroup$ Yes to which question? If the behaviour also appears on other sites beyond SE, it's out of our hands - you should raise an issue on the GitHub home. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty May 11 '17 at 21:07
  • $\begingroup$ Not beyond SE sites, but also in other SE sites, not only Physics SE. $\endgroup$ – Wrichik Basu May 11 '17 at 21:23
