I still have the manual.
I know, I know. I was only using "caret missing" as an example of how things might be messed up at my end.HansV wrote:But you're also missing the icons on the left, Chris! They should be loaded with the web page, they don't need to be present on your computer before you visit the site.

Yes, noticed that yesterday; the chevron arrows are missing in your images; and since it's easy to inspect elements with Firefox one can see that this one is supposed to "transform", in this case rotate 180 degrees. Well, no need to inspect to notice that, but to perhaps see what is going on. So far I think what I would think have been mentioned; page loading fully, extensions. If one is running script blockers and white listing cookies one can see all kinds of weird things on some pages, missing icons could be one of them. That said, Google News seems to be really simple/plain compared to other sites.ChrisGreaves wrote:Ahah!HansV wrote:"keyboard arrow up" and "dn ʍoɹɹɐ pɹɐoqʎǝʞ" are both placeholders; the actual display should be like this:
When I click on the (text) placeholders, the news article expands and contracts as I think it should.
So my problem is as if my laptop system is missing the caret characters that the web page expects to find; so it can't substitute the placeholders with the caret symbol.
I don't say that that is the cause, but it would be an explanation for what is, I suspect, a very local phenomena.
