Known Issues

  

For known issues with RES releases, please see the relevant changelog.

Extension conflicts

Some common extensions interfere with RES. To troubleshoot potential conflicts, try turning off all your other extensions.

  • Chrome / Opera: go to chrome://extensions > for each extension, uncheck the checkbox ☑ Enabled

  • Microsoft Edge: Settings > Extensions > for each extension, toggle the enabled option.

  • Firefox: Tools menu > Add-ons > Extensions tab > for each extension, Click “Disable” button

Disable all your other extensions and plugins, but leave RES enabled. If the problem goes away, then it’s a problem with one of your other extensions. (Sometimes other extensions interact with RES in strange ways.) To figure out which one exactly, turn each plugin back on one at a time and reload reddit.com until something breaks.


Ghostery vs Twitter expandos

If Twitter embeds are showing plain text, Ghostery may be blocking Twitter’s formatting script. To fix this, disable Ghostery’s Twitter Button Filter.

This is unrelated to RES.

Several common extensions which cause this issue area listed below.

  • 4chan Plus
  • YouTubeMagic Actions
  • AS Magic Viewer

Resizing an RES expando image by clicking and dragging it may open the image link in a new tab. Several users have reported that AS Magic Viewer causes this, and uninstalling that fixes it.

Ghostery, NoScript

Ghostery, Adblock Plus, and other adblock/Javascript blocker scripts often interfere with RES. Add an exception for (“whitelist”) reddit.com to fix this. (Adblockers automatically update their lists, so don’t rule them out even if you haven’t changed anything recently.)

HoverZoom

HoverZoom is usually okay, but it can make RES’s image expandos jiggle around a little.

Try HoverFree or Imagus instead.

HTTPS Everywhere

HTTPS everywhere can break some of RES’s image viewing features unless disabled for affected sites (e.g. imgur).

Privacy Badger

Privacy Badger may block Gfycat or other hosts by default.
