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.
